The Meek are not Weak
"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. (Matthew 5:5 ESV)
The world will tell you the meek are weak. They need a crutch. They can't go it alone. They need help. The world is right for the wrong reasons. The meek will tell you the same thing for the right reasons. They know they can do nothing apart from Jesus (John 15:5) and also that they can overcome any circumstance because Christ strengthens them (Phil. 4:13).
Meekness isn't weakness, it's strength under control. It's strength under the rulership of Christ, governed by the Holy Spirit. The meek are truthful. They don't arrogantly bend the rules to suit themselves. They stick to God's Word and allow it to chart their course.
God blesses the humble meek who may be bold as a lion but know where their true power comes from. Their strength, their adequacy, their full sufficiency, is the crucified, risen and soon to return Lord Jesus Christ.
