Gentleness is a humble meekness that is calm, soothing, peaceful, and easy to be around. Being considerate of the feelings and needs of others by exhibiting gentleness shows you are responding to the Spirit of God and what has been planted in you has taken root.
Only foolish people are quick to get angry. People with wisdom don’t want to pay the price. “Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, for anger rests in the bosom of fools” (Ecclesiastes 7:9). Ask God to keep you free from anger so you can remain in the flow of all God has for you.
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. 1 Peter 3:15-17
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Dear Lord, I pray that I can be as gentle and meek as Jesus. I pray over every aspect of my life so that you will keep me spiritually anchored reminding me of what your promises are. Lord, keep me focused on who You are and who you made me to be. It will help me live your way and not my own. Lord, give me the ability to distinguish the truth from a lie. Strengthen my faith and encourage me to believe for the impossible. It will enable me to become the child of God I long to be and believe I can be.
In Jesus name I pray
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
