He giveth grace unto the humble. (James 4:6)

Humble hearts seek grace, and therefore they get it. Humble hearts yield to the sweet influences of grace, and so it is bestowed on them more and more largely. Humble hearts lie in the valleys where streams of grace are flowing, and hence they drink of them, Humble hearts are grateful for grace and give the Lord the glory of it, and hence it is consistent with His honor to give it to them.

Come, dear reader, take a lowly place. Be little in thine own esteem, that the Lord may make much of thee. Perhaps the sigh breaks out, “I fear I am not humble.” It may be that this is the language of true humility. Some are proud of being humble, and this is one of the very worst sorts of pride. We are needy, helpless, undeserving, hell-deserving creatures, and if we are not humble we ought to be. Let us humble ourselves because of our sins against humility, and then the Lord will give us to taste of His favor. It is grace which makes us humble, and grace which finds in this humility an opportunity for pouring in more grace. Let us go down that we may rise. Let us be poor in spirit that God may make us rich. Let us be humble that we may not need to be humbled but may be exalted by the grace of God.

Charles Spurgeon

Amen brother; when the Lord touches your heart, He touches mine. And I pray vice versa. Amen.
Humbly placed, continually, before the throne of Grace. Amen. He is the all powerful, all knowing, all seeing, all hearing God of all His creation and all things created in it. Glory be to God. Who is anyone to think more of ourselves than we ought to think. Amen. When we do, God has a way of putting us on our face. Amen. Praise God for it. He knows how to keep His servants humble. We acknowledge He is Power; and we acknowledge we are as a spec of sand upon the sea shore. Amen.
I praise the Lord, my God, whose arm is not shortened. Amen
