Foreword by Joshua Harris
“This is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit.” â€”Isaiah 66:2 (ESV)
God clearly states that He is drawn to the humble. He’s also clear that He opposes the proud. These two, humility and pride, cannot coexist. Where one is fostered, the other is defeated.
Which will you pursue?
C.J. Mahaney paints a striking picture of the daily battle quietly raging within every Christian and asks whether you will passively accommodate the enemy of your soulâ€”prideâ€”or actively cultivate your best friendâ€”humility. When you acknowledge the deception of pride and intentionally humble yourself, you become free to savor abundant mercies and unlikely graces. You will find a new life is yours, a life God richly favors. A God-glorifying life you don’t want to miss.
