    ‘Blessed are the meek….’
    MATTHEW 5:5

    In our macho world, meekness is often mistaken for weakness. But Jesus’ definition of meekness pictures a powerful, majestic stallion that has been brought into submission. It hasn’t lost any of its stamina. It’s just that, whereas it once had a strong will of its own, it now yields to the will of another. The breaking process is complete; now it responds to the tug on the reins. Meekness involves:

    1) Sensitivity to God. In a good marriage two people often understand each other’s needs without a word needing to be spoken. The time they’ve spent together makes them aware of the things that enrich and the things that offend, and their devotion to one another makes their marriage a top priority. And it’s the same in your relationship with God.

    2) Surrender to God’s will. The key to breaking stubborn habits is not fighting them in your own strength. That only keeps your focus on the problem, intensifying its power. Changing your focus and submitting to God moment by moment is the key to winning, whether it’s a problem or a hang-up. ‘Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God’ (2 Corinthians 3:5 NKJV).

    3) Submission to God’s purposes. To understand the difference between submission and selfishness you must ponder these words: ‘So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain’ (Ezekiel 33:31 NKJV). Think about it.
