God Dwells With the Humble

The path of God follows after continual humility. God dwells with the humble. A lot of people have a really difficult time obeying God because they are so deathly afraid of being humbled, or being lowered in their own eyes.

God is Attracted to the Humble

*[[Isa 57:15]] KJV* For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

The Beauty of Humility
Psalms 149:4

For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

God Resists the Proud, but Gives Power and Favor to the Humble

1 Peter 5:5

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one toanother, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

Godly Leaders Reflect Reflect Gods Affection for the Humble

2 Corinthians 7:15

And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, whilst he remembereth the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling ye received him.

Ungodly Immature Believers choose the Proud and Rich over the Poor and Humble

James 2

1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.

2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;

3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:

4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
