7 August 

But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace. (Psalm 37:11, ESV)

Meekness does not mean weakness. Should I remind you that Jesus was considered meek and He was the one to make a whip of cattails to chase the moneychangers out of the Temple. Meekness means strength under control. It is this quality that enjoys true peace. The absolute example of this is Jesus allowing the Romans to crucify Him when He had thousands of angels at His disposal. Now that is strength.

Prayer: Lord, teach me to remain patient in humble strength.
