5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
Let's take a look at the word meek. The definition that best describes this characteristic is the word "allowing" or "non-resistant" this is the result of GREAT confidence, courage and peacefulness, which is far from being weak! Meekness is like the Gentle Giant!
meekmēk/adjectiveadjective: meek; comparative adjective: meeker; superlative adjective: meekestquiet, gentle, and easily imposed on; submissive."I used to call her Miss Mouse because she was so meek and mild"
synonyms: submissive, yielding, obedient, compliant, tame, biddable, tractable, acquiescent, humble, deferential, timid, unprotesting, unresisting,
A proper understanding and alignment with being amenable to God's word, the rules of this universe and the vast amount of well being which is available to us, will serve you well on the path of meekness!
The best way to prepare yourself and learn how to be this way is to study the function of a compass. That little needle that seems to be floating, yet it responds immediately, effortlessly, to which ever direction you are turned. When you are in the correct direction, your needle lines up with the desired point. When you find yourself pointed toward the opposing, it's just an indicator for you to adjust your direction, in attitude which will in also adjust you in spiritual altitude as well.
Wherever you are currently, is just an outcome of all the previous steps. Except, for most people, its the result of lots of directional changes without the benefit of the compass and without a proper understanding of your relationship to it.
This compass is the Holy Spirit! It let's you know when you are lined up with what is best for you. It's calibrated with advice scribed out of God's Holy word. When you are not lined up, you find confusion, dis-ease, worry, anxiety, distress. I am reminded of a time, when the Holy Spirit showed me something, in the process of trying to remove a knot from a necklace. The more I tugged and yanked, the worse it got, the resistance I had to the knot made it worse. It wasn't until I tried to remove the tension from the knot, which gave the material some wiggle room, so that I could pull the tail and make enough room to bring the rest of the chain through that loop effectively freeing the chain from its constriction. Our problems, often are solved this same way!
Learning to comply with the Holy Spirit is a skill, that can only be taught through faith and trust. When we digest (read & learn) Gods word, put it into action and rest in His promises, we find that we have a steadfast adviser, a constant companion, an all knowing seer, navigating for us before we ever even get to the fork in the road! Aligning with your compass is becoming non resistant to Gods word, going in the direction of His advice, allowing the Spirit and God's will to have His way.
Heavenly Father, I pray that your children would come to know You as the able and true confidant that You are! That ears would begin to hear only Your words of direction, that paths would light up for Your children, illuminating for us which is the best and most desirable path to take. Lord, I pray that Your courage and strength would permeate us, bolstering us toward our inevitable best purpose. Thank you Lord, that You see and know exactly the best dose for each of us in accord with our spiritual growth, making us more effective and bringing us into better communion with You! In Jesus Mighty name, we praise and thank You!
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
11 “Right then three men who had been sent to me from Caesarea stopped at the house where I was staying. 12 The Spirit told me to have no hesitation about going with them. These six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man’s house. 13 He told us how he had seen an angel appear in his house and say, ‘Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. 14 He will bring you a message through which you and all your household will be saved.’
