“He saves the humble.” Psalm 149:4
With the same intensity that He hates arrogance, God loves humility. The Jesus who said, ‘I am gentle and humble in spirit’. (Matthew 11:29) loves those who are gentle and humble in spirit. “Though the Lord supreme, He takes care of those who are humble” (Psalm 138:6). God says, “I live with people who are…. humble” (Isaiah 57:15).
He also says, “These are the people I am pleased with: those who are not proud or stubborn.” (Isaiah 66:2). And to the humble, God gives great treasure.
- He gives honor: “If you want to be honored, you must be humble” (Proverbs 15:33).
- He gives wisdom: “It is wise to be humble.”
- He gives direction: ‘He shows those who are humble how to do right” (Psalm 25:9).
- And most significantly, He gives grace: “He gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5).
