Think about it!  Submit – (Hebrew) To give account, abase self  (English) To offer oneself of one’s own free will
Submissive – willing to submit, humbly obedient
Yield – giving in to authority, speedily submitting to a superior force
Humble – to perform the act of submission, the quality of being without pride
Phil 2:8 Jesus humbled himself 2:9 – His reward!
Matt 18:1-6 Jesus teaching on being humble
Rom 13:1-2  Every soul is to be subject to their higher authority
Heb 13:7 ; James 4:7  Submit to God and resist the devil and he will flee.
To be great one must be a servant!  The moment a person becomes proud at that moment God lays them aside.  Blessing for humbling yourself by submission to God and His authority is…
Luke 4:11  Promise to the humble
James 4:6  Promise of more grace to those who humble themselves
I Peter 5:5-6  He will exalt you in due season
