Blessed are the Meek

Today I am going to share a bit of a reading about the beatitude "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth"...

Meekness looks “not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18)… whether we understand our immediate circumstances or not, He views our whole earthly pilgrimage through the eyes of eternity. He knows where we’re going. He knows how it all fits together. He knows how to extract maximum good and maximum glory out of every situation, no matter what.
…Meekness bows the knee and realizes that everything is permitted and used by God for our chastening, our purifying. Meekness says, “Not my will, but Yours be done.” Meekness bows before the throne and realizes that the God who sits upon that throne is an all-wise God …meekness knows that the God who sits upon the throne of the universe is a good God. …God will see to it that even your heartbreak will work together for good. Because He is God, He will satisfy your thirsty soul. He will fill your hungry soul with what is good.
