When you acknowledge that you are proud, that’s when the humbling process begins.
The second step is to be humble.
Pride only leaves when humbleness moves in, the same way that darkness only disperses when light is present. However, humbleness is not what most people think it is—being poor, living a simple life, or being a good person to those around you. Humbleness happens inside of you, just like pride does.
It’s easy to be “humble” on the outside because it is simple to pretend!
True humbleness comes from within and happens deep inside of a person, which is evident on the outside through admirable behaviour.
The greatest example of humbleness was the Lord Jesus…
These are the reasons why God honoured Him. Notice that the above list (which could be much longer) shows the humble spirit of the Lord Jesus. It’s not something, which is forced but who you are.
“The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, and before honour is humility.” (Proverbs 15:33)
No one is honoured by God without first being humble; this is the main way in which He honours. As well as not being honoured, the proud are rejected by God.
“…Be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (1 Peter 5:5)
