I hear you. Humility is surely needed because meekness and humility is God's Cure for our Pride, our ego.
This is an attitude or quality of mind [Acts 20:19] whereby a person holds low esteem or opinion of his own goodness and importance.
Spiritually, one abases himself because he realizes his sinfulness and therefore he is willing to depend on God to meet His needs.
It causes us to look up and realize that we are so low in hind sight to God and having humility keeps us depended on God and that we are lost without God. Lost in every possible way.
For me I say I am lost without Jesus and I and God know that. It's settled. It's not a guessing game for me anymore. It's the truth.
I hope this helps. Be blessed.
