Devotional Thoughts :
The Holy Spirit enables us to be meek and humble. Meekness is slowness to anger and to take offense. The meek are not troublemakers, noisy, or egotistically aggressive. They do not quarrel, they do not dispute or argue, they are not argumentative or boastful! They put everything in the hands of God. In Romans 12: 19-21 describes meekness, “Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
It is for this reason that when we dress ourself in meekness the Bible calls us blessed and happy. It is when one learns to put everything into the hands of the Lord and allows Him to fight his cause that we will be blessed. For this reason there is no need to take things into our own hands, let us be sure that God takes care of you when you are humble and meek! In Colossians 3: 12-13 they say to us, “12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
Today is the time to give the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Meekness always manifests itself with humility and kindness. It is evidence of a full and led by the Holy Spirit. Only when one is meek does one accept and love others, despite the bad treatment they may have towards one! In Ephesians 4: 2 it says, “with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,” This morning let us seek to bear the fruit of meekness in our lives, only in this way will we inherit the promise!
