The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5 NIV

Meekness is the attitude of the heart, mind, and life that prepares the way for sanctification. A “meek” spirit “is in the sight of God of great price” (1 Peter 3:4). Meekness is a cardinal Christian virtue (Galatians 5:23; 1 Timothy 6:11).  Meekness toward God means that we accept His will and His dealing with us as good. We submit to Him all things without hesitation. A “meek” man has self under complete control.

The meek will inherit the earth. At the present time that is not so. The general rule is meekness is weakness. However, it takes a lot more strength to be meek when going through difficult situations where you want to scream. Meekness can only be attained through the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Those who humble themselves, those who learn to be meek, in the end will be exalted.

For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. Matthew 23:12 NIV
