The Meek

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Psalm chapter 37:

9 ​​For evildoers shall be cut off;

​​But those who wait on the LORD,

​​They shall inherit the earth.

10 ​​For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;

​​Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,

​​But it shall be no more.

11 ​​But the meek shall inherit the earth,

​​And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

And Zephaniah wrote by THE SPIRIT in chapter 2:

3 ​​Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth,

​​Who have upheld His justice.

​​Seek righteousness, seek humility.

​​It may be that you will be hidden

​​In the day of the LORD’s anger.

And Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 5:

5 ​​Blessed are the meek,

​​For they shall inherit the earth.

To be meek means: mildness of disposition, gentleness of spirit, suggesting kindness and unconditional Love toward all.  Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 11:

25 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes.

26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight.

27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle (meek) and lowly (humble) in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Jesus specifically directs us to learn from Him.  Our focus should be on His acts and His ways for they reflect FATHER, fully and completely.  The Holy Spirit keeps emphasizing this Truth in the writings He has led me to post.  If we are to fully mature as Sons and Daughters, we must “learn from Jesus” Who is The Word made flesh.  All other Scriptures should be studied in light of this directive.

When we learn of and from Jesus, we will slowly but surely become like Him.  Our countenance will change as we become gentle and humble in heart.  People will begin to be drawn to us just like they were drawn to Jesus.  They will begin to see hope for their lives and find rest in their souls.

The less mature believers are focused on what Jesus can do for them and totally skip over this directive to learn of and from Jesus.  They are in a hurry to fix the issues of their life without realizing that as we draw closer to Our Heavenly Father, HE will intervene on our behalf without us constantly petitioning HIM.

A yoke is something that attaches one to another.  Jesus tells us to attach ourselves to Him and His Divine Intent for His yoke is much easier and lighter than the yoke of bondage.  The world enslaves us to walk according to its principles which lead to death and destruction.

Many people like to quote “As He is, so are we” in 1 John 4:

17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

If we are to be as He is, we must learn of Him and from Him.  The result will be a meek and humble heart.
