James 4:6

But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:
    "God opposes the proud
      but gives grace to the humble."

(NIV)
In our world, many times it seems as if it is the proud, the ones who are out for themselves, that are forceful, that believe in themselves above all things, that these are the people that get their way.  Not so in God's kingdom.  The Spirit yearns intensely for our spirits to commune with God, and it is the humble who are recipients of that unmerited favor.

The proud... Well, God opposes them.

This is why it is (ultimately) the meek will inherit the earth.
