Humility is the fundamental law for salvation, God grants humility and what others think is not important. The proud the arrogant and those who are wise in their own eyes, have God as their adversary. The simplest concept of humility is achieved by having small thoughts of oneself. If this has had a great impact on you, it will be manifested by the fact that you receive grace. The humble receive grace (James 4: 6; 1 Peter 5: 5), and to receive grace means that you receive all the help you need. You can also spend the whole night praying for love, but it won’t help you at all if you are not humble in order to receive grace.
Only receive as much grace as the humility you possess. When you can’t notice that there has been some progress in your life, it’s because you’re not getting grace. You can do a lot with your human strength. You can try to compensate for the lack of grace by being zealous in various things. You can be capable and you can be good as a human being, but all that goodness and human ability do not help at all if God opposes you. You do not recognize anything, do not judge yourself, rather defend yourself.
It is clear when things have succeeded and there is progress in a person’s life. Most people are not at all humble. They transgress what they say and do not even ask for forgiveness. What God wants so much to do is transform us from within. You may think you were treated unfairly, that you were not treated correctly; you are busy with what others think of you. You are not busy with God, but with the way you are treated by others. This is why you are unhappy and cannot become happy, because God is your adversary.
Many people do not have much light. Nothing happens in a person’s life except through these two laws – the laws concerning pride and humility -. The one who humbles himself – voluntarily lowers himself – will be raised. (Matthew 23:12; Luke 14:11) If you are a little humble, you will succeed a little, and if you are particularly humble, you will succeed particularly well. Only a little understanding you have as a human being should be enough to tell you that it must be detestable in the eyes of God when a human being has great thoughts of himself. How can God bless an arrogant person who has no self-recognition? It is a law of life and God cannot bless such a person.
Everything revolves around this problem. If you don’t succeed, you are and will remain human and sentimental. It is not just that it is right to be humble; there is nothing else that matters. Things will not open for you if you are not humble. This is why you don’t have a keen interest in the Bible. It is terribly fatal to think of doing things well and not having to recognize anything. If you judge others you are wicked, but if you judge yourself you will not be judged.
In James 4: 6, it is written: God resists the proud. Then you think: I’m not proud. But that’s exactly what you are when you don’t receive grace. He gives grace to the humble, always. When you are humble, acknowledge the truth about yourself instead of judging and criticizing others. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God! 1 Peter 5: 6
God is interested in saving us completely. It all depends on how we take things. Everyone must understand it as best they can. That a person humbles himself is something that almost never happens. On the contrary, people defend themselves. Humility is not only the main problem but the whole problem – there is only one problem. We determine for our personal choice the kind of life we will have. It’s never someone else’s fault if it goes wrong with you!
