Humble and meek,
strong or weak
One of the
characteristics of a child of God
that has been more misunderstood than anything else
True humility is not a weakness neither is it degrading
But it is one of the most powerful characteristics
In the kingdom of heaven
As Jesus put it
Blessed are the
meek: for they shall inherit
--- Matt. 5:5
To be meek or to
humble yourself, means
to recognize the greatness and strength of another
and in God's kingdom that means
to recognize God's greatness, strength and abilities!
and it also means
to understand and act upon Hebrews 11:6
he that cometh to God must believe that he (God) is
(all He says He is
and will do all He says He will do)
and that he is a
rewarder of them that diligently seek him
(and that God will
do all He promised, for you!)
How do you do
By humbling or subordinating yourself to God
and by being strong in God's strength and not in your own!
yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he
shall lift you up.
--- James 4:10
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty
hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:
--- I Peter 5:6
not being weak or pushed around
it is also not about having your own way!
It is about honoring God
in your life,
It is about standing up for God's rights
Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves,
and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made
a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple,
And said unto them
Take these things hence;
make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
And his disciples remembered that it was written,
The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
--- John 2:13-17
It is a
zeal for God and His ways
and letting God give you the victory, in love and
in His strength
