THE MEEKNESS OF GOD
As I asked Jesus to teach me about pride and humility, He surprised me by leading me into an in-depth study about meekness. I never saw the connection until most of this book was written. Then I noticed how Jesus referred to Himself as being both meek and humble. One naturally springs from the other. I don’t think we can fully understand our pride without understanding what it means to be meek.
My working definition of meekness is “to become utterly dependent upon another”. Another definition that has been helpful has been, “putting aside your own fiery nature.”
Moses referred to himself as the meekest man on earth. Why would he say this, and how did God produce this level of meekness within him? The answer may surprise you, as it did me, but I have found that He has been using the same means to produce meekness in me all these years.
In this eBook we explore how having meekness is required of those who work with God. You can be in the ministry without meekness, many are, but you cannot be mightily used of the Lord without it.
