KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:5 KJV” Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth”.
We keep listening to our Lord Jesus as He teaches on the mountain. The Lord teaches that, the meek are blessed because they would inherit the earth. Some associate meekness with weakness, yet that is a big error. Meekness is rather, strength under control. The Lord described His yoke as easy and His burden as light. He explained this as possible because of His meekness (Matt 11:28,29) The Burden and yoke of the master was simply humanly impossible, yet He says it is easy and light. What is meekness? Meekness is defined as submissiveness. It is a lowly or humble attitude that makes an individual ready to take responsibility with excitement. Difficulty of tasks, no matter the form it is, is depended on whether when executing that task, one is excited about doing that task, or apprehensive about doing it. To the man who is excited about undertaking that task, the task will be easy, but would be like carrying the whole globe if the individual is apprehensive about doing it.
The Lord taught that the meek is a very happy man. Lack of meekness is the reason for the stress of some people. Some wives complain from sun to dust about their chores, because of the absence of meekness. Some husband’s also do so Some workers would lose their employment because they are unable to give their best, because of their particular assignments are unbearable to them. Their trouble is nothing but lack of meekness. There are certain congregations who find it so difficult doing evangelism in a cooperate manner or on a personal level, while, the immediate next church close by keep winning souls with ease. Why this big difference? One group is very meek to respond to instructions, and the other church are not meek, and so find it very difficult doing what the Lord expects them to do. From the above explanations, the meek will inherit the earth, because, the meek does not despise any task, rather they joyfully accept and execute it.
Dear child Of God, are you having a stressful life because of what you are engaged in? If you have the Holy Spirit in you, then you have the spirit of meekness. God our Father takes a great delight in the meek
Psalms 149:4 KJV For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Stop thinking of yourself as too important and consider yourself as a vessel of God, whose pleasure is in doing that which pleases God.
I am extremely excited with my tasks. I take real pleasure in doing it, so God would be pleased in me. I consider it a great privilege and opportunity to do what I am doing.
Psalms 25:9 KJV” The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.”
Isaiah 29:19 KJV. The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
