James 4:6 – Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Do not resist the proud; you cannot win.
Don’t argue, fight, cajole or use your wits.
It’s useless even when the pride’s within;
Don’t even try, you should just call it quits.
You struggle with a spirit that’s a pro.
Remember, Satan’s pride cost him his crown.
Here only God above can strike the blow
Resisting, beating all that’s pride-full down.
Fall on your knees to Abba, let it go,
For there’s no room for pride before the throne.
Humility is all that’s left to show.
When God resists the proud His grace is known.
Let God remove all pride where it may lie.
Stay close to Him, and only Him rely.
