What The Bible Says

James 4:10  Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.

Bowing in humility before the Lord means recognizing that our worth comes from God alone. To be humble involves leaning on his power and his guidance, and not going our own independent way. Although we do not deserve God’s favor, he wants to lift us up and give us worth and dignity, despite our human shortcomings.
