Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to [your] elders. Yes, all of [you] be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for [” God resists the proud,] [But] [gives grace to the humble.”] 1 Peter 5:5 (NKJV)
Humbling yourself is not having a low self-esteem. It’s not seeing, feeling or carrying yourself as inferior and insignificant. Only false godless religion teaches such.
Telling God and people that you’re nothing, a nobody, and unworthy, has nothing at all whatsoever to do with being humble. That’s a total disregard and negation of God’s image and likeness in you.
Seeing, being satisfied with, and carrying yourself in God’s estimation of you is humility.
You’re God’s child, dearly loved and greatly and valued. As God’s beloved child you know you wholly belong to and totally depend on Him.
He is your source for everything; He’s your support and sustainer in all things. All you are, all you have, all you can do is from Him and by Him.
Having this attitude helps you have a healthy balanced estimation of yourself and others. This is humility. Always see God present and at work in you and others, and attribute to Him the cause and effect of everything good and beneficial.
1 Peter 5:6 (NKJV) Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,
Humbling yourself under the mighty hand of God is acknowledging Him as your sole ability and strength. It’s understanding that it’s not by human might or power but by God’s Spirit that we accomplish anything and everything worthwhile- Zechariah 4:6.
