Joel Osteen (March-04-2021) Today's Word: Meek Isn't Weak

Today’s Scripture: Matthew 5:5, NIV - Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Today’s Word: Meek doesn't mean weak. Meekness is strength under control. When you ignore someone's negative comments, when you don't pay attention to other people's insults and criticisms, you're not being weak; you're being meek. You have the power to fight, you have the strength to straighten them out and let them know how you feel, but your strength is under control. You're not wasting your time and energy on things that are not between you and your destiny. If you stay on the high road, God will take care of your enemies. He can defend you better than you can defend yourself. My message is very simple: Quit letting other people get you upset and steal your joy. You can't control what people do; you can't control what they say, but you can control how you respond. Quit letting their negative comments upset you. You're not defined by what they say. Don't give it the time of day. If you maintain your meekness, God will fight your battles.

Prayer for Today: Father, thank You that I have the power to remain quiet because You have worked meekness into my life. Thank You that I can stay on the high road and let You take care of other people's comments and attitudes. I've made up my mind that I'm going keep my joy. In Jesus Name, Amen.
