Meekness

Psalm 37:11
But the meek will inherit the land
and delight themselves in abundant peace.
 
This is not the modern understanding of subservient acceptance that the word meek has morphed into over the years, but a Middle Eastern understanding of discipline in accepting leadership in our lives when difficulties happen. When David was writing this psalm he was talking about how God tames the wildness of our hearts and circumcises them to follow Him, just as we tame wild animals like horses to such that they have not lost their strength but have learned to control the destructive instincts that prevent them from living in harmony with others. Meekness creates harmony in the body of believers! Dear Lord tame me so that I may always serve You! I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
