The Law of Humility

Well. It has been forever. A lot has happened since 2013. It feels like a lifetime. I’ve been to many different countries, moved 5 times, fallen down in my personal life, picked myself up and then fallen down again, with God eventually deciding that I’d been humbled enough.

What have I learned? Humility, humility, humility. Faith in the Word of God is the strongest power in the universe, but the law of humility is just a law. Graphically it goes like this: the amount of grace you receive in your life is directly proportionate to how humble you are.  The more pride you have, the less grace will be over your life.

James 4:6

But the grace that God gives is even stronger. As the scripture says, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

This also ties in with the verse:

1 Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.

Think of it! We can humble ourselves so He doesn’t have to! The key thing to remember is that either way, it’ll happen.  Either we can humble ourselves or God will humble us. Which way results in more grace? I’m guessing the former, as it takes a build up of pride for God to humble us. Whereas if we stay on the straight and narrow, we can remain humble and remain in grace.
