James 4:10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.” 

Those who humble themselves before our God accept their dependence upon Him. It is in one’s humility where they acknowledge that they are nothing without God; and recognize that if not for His grace they would surely fall. So then, my brethern, “do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.” – St. Augustine
