DAY 15 BEATITUDES – DISCUSSION MATTHEW 5:5

15

“BLESSED ARE THE MEEK FOR THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.”

I loved what Melinda Doolittle said.  From her concordance she read: “Meekness is when we accept God’s dealings with us as good, and therefore without disputing or resisting.”  And she closed with “When I recall what is happening to me is supposed to happen, and that its good, then I can be a tad bit more gentle about it.”

One’s ability to be meek comes back to trusting that God is over everything.  Nothing slips through His fingers when it comes to those He loves.  He is working all things together for good – our good and His glory.  When this is in my thoughts then I do not operate out of fear and scarcity. I do not have to hold on, make right, convince and defend. I am free to take on alarming acts of love.

O Lord You have been good
You have been faithful
To all generations
O Lord Your steadfast love
And tender mercy
Have been our salvation

For by Your hand
We have been fed
And by Your Spirit
We have been led

O Lord Almighty God
Father unchanging
Upright and holy
O Lord You have been good
You have been faithful
You have been good

You Have Been Good – Twila Paris
