When I think of being meek, it is being humble in the Spirit. Some may feel broken and don’t know where to begin or go to find the solution. I have found that God is the answer and our solution. God tells us in Matthew 5:5 “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Yes, we are meek but we can also be mighty in the Spirit and our Lord.
It also says in Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” We all should hunger and thirst for the Word of God and want to help others to do the same, so we can multiply in the Lord and be in heaven together.
This brings to mind a young broken woman that I know. She grew up in a home being abused and mistreated. She lived with her step-father, mother, and siblings. She had no solution or way out of the abuse of her mother. The only person she could count on was her grandmother who lived far away and was only able to visit a few times each year. Her grandmother did sense she was not happy and was often very sad. Her grandmother began to talk with her and taught her how to pray. As this woman grew older, she began to realize how prayer made a difference in her life. She knew she was broken inside and needed something or someone more in her life. Even though she could not see God, she knew He was there with her. She began to have peace and comfort and acceptance of things she could not change. She knew one day God would bring her out of the bondage in which she currently lived.
That day did come. God gave her an opportunity to leave that home and begin a new life in another town. God eventually gave her a Christian home, husband, children, and church home. He also gave her the most wonderful gift of her life, a relationship with Him. He gave her boldness that she never had and enough love to serve and help others.
I encourage all to serve and reach out to those who don’t know the Lord. Just pass it on and help others to become additions to the Kingdom of God.
