Strength Under Control

Blessed are those who are humble [meek], for they shall inherit the earth.

Thoughts

I want to take 5 minutes to remind you of a gem from Matthew 5:5: “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”

Now, I know our world doesn’t always value meekness and humility, but let me tell you, being a meek and humble woman of God is a true superpower. It honestly takes strength to hold back and keep our mouths shut sometimes, amiright?

It’s not about being a doormat; it’s about having a heart that’s strong in the most beautiful way.

Meekness is strength under control. In a culture that often glorifies assertiveness and self-promotion, being meek can sometimes feel like swimming upstream. The Bible tells us what we would be persecuted for Christ, and demonstrating meekness as a woman in today’s world will absolutely be cause for some persecution. We’re setting society back a few centuries. It’s old school thinking.

But let’s flip the script for a moment. Meekness isn’t about weakness (it’s a common misconception just because it rhymes!); it’s about having a gentle and teachable spirit.

It’s the art of knowing when to speak up and when to listen, when to lead and when to follow.

Being meek means your strength is grounded in the right places—God’s truth, His love, and His guidance.

Humble? That’s not about downplaying your worth or achievements. It’s about recognizing that every good thing in you comes from God. It’s choosing to lift others up instead of yourself. When you embrace humility, you create space for God’s grace to shine through your life. So, Sister, wear your meekness and humility like a crown. Embrace your strength with gentleness, and let your heart be a reflection of God’s goodness. After all, isn’t that what we are called to do? It’s hard to glorify God if I have a “look at me and all the stuff I’m doing!” attitude. 

In a world that often shouts, your quiet strength will speak volumes, and your humility will light up the path God has set before you.

What a beautiful image of a woman filled with grace and servitude in Christ. Let’s be that.
