Thoughts of humility and pride cannot exist at the same time in our brains. We have to get rid of one of them. If humility is our thought then pride cannot be in the picture whatsoever. If pride is our thought then humility is non-existent. If we are ever going to truly go where God wants us to go we are going to have to get in the proper position and that position is humility.
God resists the proud but give grace to the humble. The word of God tells us to humble ourselves. We must understand our position in Christ and how we are to position ourselves for Him to speak to us.
