The biggest challenge is thinking we know, and God will always leave us to ourselves until we fail and then surrender to Him. But this is not the best way of leading.

2 Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”

The key to victory in life is in the leading of the Holy Spirit; this is guaranteed for only believers who yield to His leading (1 Corinthians 15:57).

Psalms 32:9 “Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you.”

Because we are stubborn, God allows challenges/troubles to beat us to Himself yet this is not the best leading. (Palms 119:71)

There is another way of leading: The hearing ear and the seeing eye (Proverbs 20:12) where God whispers to you in your spirit and that is the best guidance.

Psalms 25:9 (KJV) “The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.”

It is the meek people that God will lead but you need to be teachable as it is one of the definitions attributed to being meek. Someone meek will always receive instruction.

Judgment here means ‘making choices.’ Life is about making choices and we are confronted with making choices every day, but only the Holy Spirit can guide us to the right ones.

Even when you think you know and have it together, you must ask the Holy Spirit.

Numbers 22:28 “Then the Lord opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?”

God can use anybody and anything to minister to you. God used a donkey to bring back a mighty prophet (Balam) to his rightful senses because he was too bent on his way. You do not need to be beaten to hear God.

God made man in such a way that he must be helped even before the fall: but how can you be helped if you are not meek?

Hosea 4:16 “For Israel is stubborn Like a stubborn calf; Now the Lord will let them forage Like a lamb in open country.”

Numbers 14:31 “But your little ones, whom you said would be victims, I will bring in, and they shall know the land which you have despised.”

Of the Israelites that were saved from Egypt, only two people and the children entered the promised land because children are teachable.

If the Lord is telling you “Let go”, do not be stubborn but let it go. Do not hold on to it because He knows what is best for you. Be teachable and learn.

Who is a meek person?

This is a person who is given instruction, yields to it, and carries it out without complaining; someone who does not line up excuses.

Both Saul and David made mistakes, but when they were confronted by the prophets, their responses were different and Saul ended up losing his kingdom because of a lack of brokenness. (1 Samuel 13:8-14, 2 Samuel 12:1-13

Meekness will save you many things, for the meek will He guide.

Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 [a]gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”

The fruit of the Spirit is the nature/character of God. This means that we all have the fruit of meekness in us and it is what helps us to contain greatness.

The meek have a lot but they do not display: they instead hold back themselves. Jesus on the cross was not moved when He was told “if you are a son of God, come down.” (Luke 4:3-4)

May the Holy Spirit who will help us to manifest the fruit of meekness which is the nature of God within us.
