Well, one can better see the whole, wonderful picture being meek.
We often find ourselves overwhelmed by life’s trials and challenges. We think of them as bigger than ourselves, greater than our capacity and capabilities as people. Why?
We tend to rely on what we see and what we feel. We lean on our own knowledge and insights . Humbling ourselves before God means admitting our weakness and saying “Lord,help me for I am weak without You. You are bigger than any of my problems, worries and myself. I will trust You because You alone can help me.”
New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]
