In Psalms 37:11 Psalms 37:11But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
American King James Version×we read, “The meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.” Who are the meek? They are the ones who are willing to be used by God, but express the proper humility in serving Him. They are like a junior high clarinet section playing with the Boston Pops. They don’t tell the maestro how to conduct; they’re just thrilled to be part of the concert.
Walking with God takes courage, determination and continuance. It is not for the weak, but definitely is for the meek. One of the greatest leaders God ever chose was Moses. He was described as meek (Numbers 12:3 Numbers 12:3(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were on the face of the earth.)
American King James Version×), but not weak. Before our Creator we must be humble and submissive—before men we can be confident and strong. Those are the qualities God seeks in His children.
