God humbles us for our own good
Deuteronomy 8:16The God who gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never heard of, in order to give you a taste of the hard life, to test you so that you would be prepared to live well in the days ahead of you.
God saves the humble
Psalms 18:26-27The true people taste your truth, The bad ones can’t figure you out. You take the side of the down-and-out, But the stuck-up you take down a peg.
God exalts the humble
Luke 18:14 Jesus commented, “This tax man, not the other, went home made right with God. If you walk around with your nose in the air, you’re going to end up flat on your face, but if you’re content to be simply yourself, you will become more than yourself.”
Humble yourself before God
James 4:10 Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.
