Until and unless you’re submissive to the Lord and His Word, you really can’t walk with the Spirit of God. True humility is yielding to the will of the Father; acting on the Word, regardless and independent of circumstances. It’s about honouring, regarding, and giving preference to others, because the Word says so.
Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble (1 Peter 5:5).
You can talk in tongues; you can prophesy; but if you’re not submissive and humble, it’s all in vain. Walking in humility is a great blessing. Use it for your life, to guide yourself, and you’ll be amazed at the blessings that would result. Humility brings promotion. The Bible says God resists the proud and gives more grace to the humble; resulting in honour, increase, enlargement, and progress.
Don’t carry your shoulders so high against your brothers and sisters in Christ, especially your leaders in the Lord; be humble. Be submissive. Pride and submissiveness are signs of demonic presence. Satan wasn’t submissive to God; he was a proud figure, and for his haughtiness, God kicked him out of his place of honour. You must make up your mind to walk in humility. It’s part of the manifestation of the life of Christ in you.
