Strength under Control

Feature Lifestyle Strength under Control

Today’s Scripture

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
(Matthew 5:5, NKJ).

Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria

When most people hear that word “meek,” many times they think of a weak, shy, reserved or timid person who lets everybody run all over them. But that’s not at all what it means to be meek. Meekness is not weakness; it’s strength under control. Meekness is like a wild horse that has been tamed. He’s just as strong, just as powerful, has just as much speed as before, but now that strength is under control. You can walk up to him, pet him, lead the horse around, get on him and ride him. But don’t be fooled. He has the same power, the same tenacity as before, he’s just learned how to control it.

When you’re a meek person, you don’t have to go around trying to straighten everybody out. You don’t respond to every critic. People may be talking about you, but you don’t let it bother you. You may have the power to do something about it, but you realize your time is too valuable. You don’t fall for every distraction. Instead, you keep your focus on what God has called you to do. You keep your strength and power under control so that you choose to stay in peace and move forward in the victory the Lord has in store for you.

A prayer for Today

Father in heaven, thank You for the blessing of meekness. I choose today to be a person of self-control. Help me to know when to speak and when to listen, when to respond and when to hold back, so that I can honor You all the days of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.


  1. Word is born,strength under control,same power,same tenacity but I should learn how to control it,Lord help me

  2. At the completion of reading the the above text, I heard a spirit within me chanting an AMEN, I then had no choice than to join in the chanting of the th AMEN. Thank Joel and Victoria

    • I would appreciate it more if he were to use scriptures from the book of Solomon , befitting our time.

  3. Yes Lord our hearts are restless until they rest in you.Grant us wisdom so that we may not lose sight of you dispite ups and downs and that the power of darkness shall not overpower us.You are all we have and the reason for our being. May we keep our focus on what you have called us to do and not to be distractive.

  4. The example of the tamed horse is a very good one. The practical part of it is the hardest because it is part of human nature to display our strength. But thank God for His Spirit, who is there to direct us and lift us up when we fall. Hallelujah!
