God’s Pleasure in Meekness


     God highly prizes meekness.

     A woman with a meek and quiet spirit has a beauty that is incorruptible and is very precious in His sight (1 Peter 3:4).

     The Father rewarded His Son’s meekness by highly exalting Him (He seated Him above all principalities, power, might, and dominion—Ephesians 1:21) and then giving Him the name which is above every name (not only in this age but also in that which is to come—Ephesians 1:21) that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:9-11).

     The Lord takes pleasure in His people and will beautify them with salvation, because of their meekness (Psalm 149:4).

     How blessed are the meek!!
