Matthew 5:5

Matthew 5:5 KJV Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
 
The next step to being happy God’s way is meekness. Meekness is often associated with weakness. Nothing could be further from the truth. When the Greeks wanted to paint a word picture of the word meek they used a bridled horse. Picture all the power, speed, and agility of a horse controlled by the reins. That is meekness. Meekness is having our emotions and thoughts under control. Meekness is a part of the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23). When we allow the Spirit to control our emotions and thoughts, we will experience meekness. When we allow the Holy Spirit to control our emotions and thoughts, He will also help with control of our actions. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to control our emotions and thoughts today.
