Blessed [are] the meek, For they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5 (NKJV)
Jesus is the true definition of what being meek is all about. He tells us in Matthew 11:29 that we learn from Him because He is gentle or meek.
How was Jesus meek? Again He tells us:
John 5:30 (AMPC) I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord–but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.
Jesus acknowledged that as a man He was able to do nothing from Himself [independently, of His own accord–but only as He was taught by God. He acknowledged and acted in total dependence on God. He made judgment and therefore life decisions based on what He heard from the Father.
He did not seek or consult His own will or way but that of His Father who sent Him.
Therefore we are meek when: We acknowledge and act in total dependence on God. Praying always is a practical application of this.
We judge and make life decisions based on what we hear from God. Paying attention to the Word and listening to our hearts is how we practice this discipline.
We seek or consult not our will or way but that of God. Taking time to wait on God for His counsel and direction in everything we do.
Then the reward for being meek is inheriting the earth. This means:
We get to live long, whole, and strong in the earth. We are able to deal wisely in the affairs of life and have good success. We get to enjoy the good and the abundance of the earth.
