“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” – Matthew 5:5
“Human nature is ever struggling for expression, ready for contest; but he who learns of Christ is emptied of self, of pride, of love of supremacy, and there is silence in the soul. Self is yielded to the disposal of the Holy Spirit. Then we are not anxious to have the highest place. We have no ambition to crowd and elbow ourselves into notice; but we feel that our highest place is at the feet of our Saviour. We look to Jesus, waiting for His hand to lead, listening for His voice to guide.” – Thoughts from The Mount of Blessing, p. 15
There is no happier place in life than knowing that you are in harmony with God in all you do. This harmony exists when Jesus is sought after, and the exaltation of self is abandoned, recognizing that the sinful “heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick.” (Jeremiah 17:9). Humility, meekness, is the key to letting the Holy Spirit develop in you a truly beautiful, Christ-like character.
Will you ask Jesus to take away your prideful desires, your self-centered ambitions, and your love of supremacy? Will you ask Him to replace them by enabling you to practice gentleness, meekness, and humility, starting today?

- Rose K.: “Praise God for the 100 Days of Prayer! Every day I am prompted to do something new, or I see new changes in other believers. Afterward, I realize that what I saw was actually an answer to the prayer request in the 100 Days of Prayer. It is amazing to see how the Holy Spirit is working!”
