When dealing with God we need to be like putty in His hands. Pride keeps us from dealing properly and humbly with Him.Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Psalms 105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.Matthew 23:12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
Luke 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
