The Blessings of The Meek

25 Apr

The Blessings of The Meek…

The word is ‘Seh.’ Seh is Hebrew for Lamb. Jesus is the ‘Seh Elohim,’ the Lamb of God. The Bible speaks of Jesus being a Lamb, and at the very end, it gives a glimpse of the Lamb sitting on the throne, reigning over creation.

The Lamb is king. How radical! A lamb is meek, defenseless, and small. Yet in the kingdom of God, in the world to come, in the realm of heaven, it’s the Lamb who rules. We think, to succeed, we have to look out for “Number One.”

But, it’s all wrong; in God’s kingdom, it’s the Lamb who sits on the throne. It’s the Lamb who reigns, who prevails, who wins. Stop lifting yourself up. It will not be a strutting rooster that sits on the throne. Stop fighting. It will not be a raging bull that ends up on the throne. Stop manipulating. It will not be a crafty snake on the throne.

It’s the Lamb who sits on the throne. Be like a lamb: gentle, loving, pure, full of faith and trust, spotless and humble before God. And you will win your victory; you will reign in the Kingdom of the Lamb.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Psalm 23

Consider the Lamb in everything – And seek to do all things as He would, and in His power.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
