Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
Humility is our absolute submisiveness to the will, purpose and plan of God. It is an act of service to the Lord. It is placing ourselves at the back stage, for God to take the centre stage.
When we humble ourselves before God, He supplies us with His grace, and with this grace we are able to excel in our given endeavours.
God admits the humble, but resist the proud.
