The Holy Spirit Produces Fruit: MEEKNESS

Meekness (Galatians 5:22-23), also translated “gentleness,” is primarily a response to God. It is a state of heart that not only acknowledges God’s sovereign rule, but embraces His sovereign rule as good. A person with meekness does not blame God for undesirable circumstances, nor does he become angry with God when he does not get his way. Meekness must come from the power of the Holy Spirit. Contrary to meekness are despair, anger, wrath, impatience, anxiety, fear, and envy.

Do you feel despair, anger, fear, or envy in your heart today? Let the Holy Spirit work inside of you, letting you forgive in order to be more gentle.

Turning Wounds Into Wisdom,

You Him and Her 💜
