I Am Meek

Today’s Daily Devotion

By Dr. George J. Ceremuga

In both the Old and New Testament, meekness is considered a strength and not a weakness. Look at Zechariah (9:9-10) where he banishes the chariot and the warrior’s bow and proclaims peace to the nations. Instead of provoking aggression and conquering with force, He is a “just savior” whose meekness diffuses anger and violence.

This is exactly what Jesus proclaims in Mathew 11:29. Jesus is reminding us that it requires strength to exercise control and restraint over our impulses so that we can manifest the presence of God. This nurtures peace in the presence of Jesus. Think about the way he calmly passed through the crowd that wanted to kill him (Luke 4:30). Or the way he quietly endured his passion and death. Though He was harshly treated, like Isaiah’s Suffering Servant, “he submitted and did not open His mouth” (Isaiah 53:7). Come Holy Spirit Come…

I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves.
Mathew 11:29
