Meek not weak

Blessed are the meek [(humble (NLT), gentle (NAS)] for they will inherit the earth. Matt. 5:5

Meekness isn’t rolling over on everything, it’s living inside the realization that we are not initiators, controllers, or judges. Christ called Himself “meek and lowly of heart” yet He was an effective leader and powerful communicator. He responded to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Jesus made it clear He was not acting on His own strength and deflected glory back His Father. The meek respond to opportunity and challenge as though a loving God really is in charge and can be trusted.

Lord, help me to be meek and let You be powerful.
