Commit to the Lord in Meekness & Inherit the Earth: God’s Promise

July 5, 2021

This morning during worship, God intentionally pointed me in the direction of trusting and submitting to Him and choosing meekness.

Big Sidenote: I’ve learned that you have to be intentional and strategic about listening to God because He be talking. You pray and exhale Him and then ask Him what’s on His mind. Honestly a real relationship is what He wants. But we often pray and and don’t listen for him. Imagine if we did that in real relationships.

And yes, I said “He be talking.” Because He do! We have to sit down, turn off our phones and really seek out what God is saying through prayer, worship and reading the word. He has instructions but we Must listen. And I don’t care, it’s just different reading the physical Bible. You know how you feel reading a Kindle version of a book versus a hardback book with pages in it. It’s necessary.

And there’s a balance to it too. Like the Bible app is definitely convenient but the tangible Word should be our primary source because technology fails or our internet is controlled. But anyways before we gone down a rabbit hole of facts …

This morning, I asked God, “What are you saying to me this morning, Lord?”

And Boom “Psalm 73:5” comes up in my head but sometimes in seeing and hearing I’ve noticed that it’ll come in backwards. (I gotta ask God about that again) But He pointed me to Psalm 37:5. And I know when I get it right because He confirms it in my spirit.

Psalm 37:5 says, “Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him and he will do this.”

But Psalm 37:11 also says” But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity.” 

These verses really just stuck to me and brought me a reminder that

  1. God wants you to chill out and just say “Yes” to Him. Be obedient. Fast if He needs you to fast. Because He only wants the best for you and His will be done.

  2. You can’t do anything with God and have a haughty, harsh attitude. Choose meekness to obtain your full inheritance.

Proverbs 16:18 says “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”

God has been wanting to take me further but sometimes I’m like “God I just don’t feel like fasting.” Or “God why do I have to control my attitude?” But why am I questioning God, the creator of the universe? Does He not understand what’s going on? Does He not understand what’s best for me?

Also, after researching meekness, I happened upon someone saying “Yes, that’s what Jesus was talking about in Matthew 5.” I didn’t know which verse in specific But God was like “Matthew 5:5.” Matthew 5:5 says, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”

First of all, I am always impressed by the fact that God really talks and in a very chill voice. He talks like He’s been resting since the beginning of Creation. Anywho…

God wants you to remain soft and pliable and lay every word with love and kindness to others. While some of our exteriors may seem harsh, we can still remain soft on the inside. Jesus is literally the full embodiment of meekness. When He died for us they referred to Him as a lamb going into slaughter. Like He seriously did that…in meekness. There is utter power in meekness.

Isaiah 37:5 He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.

What is the definition of meekness?

 You are not weak because you are not reactive to things that are meant to hurt you. You possess love and self control. You are not weak if you don’t choose to fight but allow God to fight your battles.

This attitudes come with the salvation. Living in the lifestyle of Christ who dwells within us, we choose love over Hatred. We choose not reacting versus reacting. We choose kindness and gentleness above harshness. We choose meekness. Especially when we fellowship with the Holy Spirit who continuously reveals to us everything we need to know and spend time with our King, we grow in His characteristics.

 As I grow in my confidence, I have to remember that being loud and heard does not necessarily equate to Confidence.

Confidence can be quiet. Not reacting because you don’t have a need to want to please others. Sometimes it lies in sitting still when everything else around you is going haywire. Allowing kindness and wisdom to be your clothing, it is a pleasing aroma to God. I really want to be amongst those who are meek and gentle all the time.  I want those to always be my portion and not reacting from a place of combativeness and pettiness; That’s I used to do before I was reborn in Christ. The old me is dead. So I will not react from a place of memories. As in, I will not react from a place of what I learned in survival mode. I will continue to renew my mind in Christ, and I implore you to do the same.

Be blessed and make sure you choose meekness over harshness.

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” ( Romans 10:13)

Y’all have a blessed day!
