DAILY DEVO...meekness is not weakness


Meekness is not weakness. Perhaps we get the two mixed up from time to time. But there is a difference: a weak person can't do anything while a meek  (a humble) person can do something but they choose not to.

In today's Scripture reading in the book of Numbers, we read that Moses was the meekest man on earth. At first, I thought, Moses? But then I thought about how he led a multitude of people and how he basically was the go-between between God, the Israelites and king Pharaoh. Surely not a small task to be done.

I know people who obtain alittle fame, some fortune, even a new title and it ALL goes to their head, but not Moses. Rather than making him arrogant and prideful, Moses was humble.

(Numbers 12:3) "Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth."

Throughout the Bible, we see how true encounters with God never puffed people up, rather, it brought them to their knees.

We all have a choice to make: we can face our challenges and approach God with weakness or meekness. Which one will it be?


TODAY'S SCRIPTURE READING: Numbers 12-13, Mark 13:9-37, Psalm 51:10-19

SATURDAY'S SCRIPTURE READING: Numbers 14, Mark 14:1-31, Psalm 52

God's Word is a light unto our path!!
