Question:

How do you humble yourself in front of the Lord?


Answer:

To be humble is the opposite of being prideful. A prideful man only listens to his own desires. He acts in accord with his own wishes.

"But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble." Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you" (James 4:6-7).

Here then is the key. Humbling yourself before God is the same as submitting to God. It means you willingly obey God.

We can also see this in God's command that we submit to the government. "Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good" (I Peter 2:13-14).

The Jews, in their pride, would not submit to God. "For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God" (Romans 10:2-3).

"By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome" (I John 5:2-3).

Thank you so much for your answer. It was very clear.
