KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 11:29 KJV “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
The Lord Jesus teaches us how to have rest for our souls. The Lord asks us to take his yoke or join Him, and learn from Him. He says He is meek and lowly in heart.
What are the characteristics of a meek person?
1.The meek person is very teachable PS 25:9
2.They meek is patient and so possesses the earth. Ps 37:11
3.God beautifies the meek with Salvation. Psalm 149:4
4. The meek increases his joy in the Lord. Isaiah 29:19
5.The meek is hid from God’s anger on the day of Judgment. Zeph 2:3
6 The meek controls his strength.
The meek man endures challenges and stays through difficult times, till he overcomes. This is not so with the proud man. He attacks himself and anyone he feels is making things difficult for him. The proud man is easily offended when he is mistreated and cannot easily forgive his offender. The proud is highly unteachable and therefore suffers in his folly. God is very much against the proud and therefore, he suffers God’s Judgment (James 4:6) Whiles the meek and lowly man enjoys doing his tasks with joy and satisfaction, the proud complains, questions and is generally very much unrest..
In science substances stay afloat because they have a hollow internal part, whiles substances that have no hollow internal portions cannot float, but sink. A meek man is selfless and so is not full of himself. This makes him hollow within. He is carried rather by what should have sunk him, and make things less miserable for him. The proud man is full of himself, and so he is like the substance with no hollow part and does sinks into life matters, making life miserable for him
When we compare further, other natural substances like a ship, it can carry any burden or load imaginable, so long as it has the hollow part. If anything should fill up that hollow portion, it can’t carry the smallest paper, it will sink.
The Lord said my yoke is easy and my burden is light, because I ‘m meek and lowly, in heart making him like the hollow ship, which is able to bear very heavy weights.. He had the sins of the whole world to carry, yet claimed it was easy. You can indeed have rest for your soul, if you choose to be meek and lowly like the Lord Jesus. Throw away any form of pride, it makes you feel important within, but the truth is, it only messes you up
I am filled with the Spirit of God. He is gentle ‘, meek and kind. I do manifest the trait of meekness. My soul is always at rest.
Psalms 22:26 KJV. The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live forever.
Isaiah 11:4 KJV” But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.”
