Be Meek with God

“Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’ And he said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ Then the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ So he, trembling and astonished, said, ‘Lord, what do You want me to do?’”

Acts 9:4-6

Ponder This

If you want to know the will of God, there must be willingness. And there must also be meekness. Saul said, “Lord what will you have me to do?” That is, “You are in control. I’m not in control.” Do you know what meekness is? Meekness means you are teachable. Psalm 25:9 says, “the meek will he guide” (KJV). Are you meek? If you’re not willing and you’re not meek, you won’t know God’s will.

Now, here’s a third thing: Not only did Saul have willingness and meekness, but he also had openness. He sought the will of God. Have you been open to the will of God? Don’t just simply say, “If God wants to show me, He can.” Have you earnestly prayed and said, “Oh God, I want to know Your will”? Do you report for godly duty? Do you think it’s up to God to put His hand on your shoulder and snatch you and turn you around? Or, after you’ve met the Lord Jesus, are you going to be like Paul and say, “What is it Lord that you really want me to do?”

  • Where have you seen an example of meekness in someone close to you?
  • Has God ever guided you to do something? What was that like?

Practice This

Talk to a close friend or family member and ask if that person has seen meekness in you. Ask that person to keep you accountable as you seek God’s guidance.
