Learning Meekness

Learning Meekness

Come to Me when you are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest and teach you how to be meek, like I am.1 The meekness I’m referring to is really strength, but it is manifested with gentleness and kindness. It doesn’t need to assert itself or boast, because it knows its strength.

A lot of times people feel they have to put on an act so as to appear stronger and more confident than they are; but that’s pretty easy to see through. It’s far better in the long run to be honest with yourself and others; honest about your strengths, but also about your weaknesses; honest when you’re confident, and honest when you’re not. When you know who you are, and most of all when you know who I am, when you’re true to yourself and authentic in your dealings with others, you can walk in confidence.

When you rest in Me, I refresh and renew you and reconnect you with My strength. Then you are able to meet all the demands that you face—whether pressure or overload at work, relationship challenges, or negative emotions—and deal with them in My strength. When things get busy and hectic and topsy-turvy, it’s easy to let yourself get a little gruff or sharp with people, which of course is not being meek and gentle, and which often doesn’t get good results or make you feel any better.

Stabilize and strengthen yourself by resting in Me and by learning My meekness of spirit. Then My strength will give you what you need to face and handle and overcome your daily challenges.

Message from Jesus

These words from Jesus were received by men and women just like you who asked Jesus to speak to them. They claimed the biblical promise “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known” (Jeremiah 33:3), and they received advice, direction, and encouragement.

The messages of guidance and comfort received during personal prayer express Jesus’ great love and personal concern. Jesus will speak to anyone who believes in Him, asks Him to speak, and accepts that the “still, small voice” (1 Kings 19:11–13) they hear in their hearts is Him speaking. You too can hear directly from Jesus. To find out more, check out this book.
