you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,

God is Giving Me


1. Softness of temper; mildness; gentleness; forbearance under injuries and provocations.
2. In an evangelical sense, humility; resignation; submission to the divine will, without murmuring or peevishness; opposed to pride, arrogance and refractoriness. Gal. v.
I beseech you by the meekness of Christ. 1 Cor x.
Meekness is a grace which Jesus alone inculcated, and which no ancient philosopher seems to have understood or recommended.

Webster's 1st ed., 1828

God is God, and I am not.

I have given myself to God as a horse to a rider, to be tamed and to ride where directed. While I strengthen myself so that the Rider has a dependable and sturdy steed, I relinquish my right to go where I please, as an undisciplined rebellious stallion. My meekness enables me to accomplish more for His Kingdom than I could in my own strength.

I have rejected the Enlightenment myth of personal rights and expectations; all that I have or could expect belongs to God.
Psalm 62:5

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55
