God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Pride is one of the most destructive of sins because it causes spiritual blindness. One becomes incapable of seeing God or the things of God when pride is prevalent. Being proud of a well-behaved child is very different from spiritual pride. Spiritual pride is a refusal to substitute your opinion or your judgment for God's opinion and God's judgment. When spiritual pride is present, the mind is controlled by Satan who causes the person to believe that they are in control and that they are making the necessary decisions.
Traversing the distance from pride to humility may seem to be the equivalent of going from one side of the Grand Canyon, USA to the other. It also can be treacherous at times, but at the end of the journey, every willing traveler reaps enormous benefits. A spiritually humble person never makes important decisions with their mind. They always seek the guidance of the indwelling Holy Spirit by listening to their heart where the Holy Spirit dwells.
If your heart seems to be silent, block your ears and listen intently to your heart, or focus on the solar plexus at the center of your chest. If you still cannot hear the Holy Spirit speak to you in your native language, it may mean that you do not have the indwelling Holy Spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit to come into your heart, and prepare to be guided.
