From Thomas Jones and Michael Fontenot’s The Prideful Soul’s Guide To Humility

The humble man is confident that God’s way is better, and he surrenders his will to God’s. The prideful one fears surrender and fights it but always loses in the end.

Surrender is the state we stay in as disciples of Christ, who himself constantly acknowledged his surrender to God. In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus was strongly pulled in a certain direction but in humility, he surrendered to the will of God. That surrender brought salvation for all who put their faith in him.
