Meek and Broken

Meek and Broken

“Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the LORD’s anger.” - Zephaniah 2:3

A wild horse on a farm is out of control and of no use to the master. When his will is unbroken and he has no meekness (power under control) he lives a life of unrealized potential. He is on the farm for a purpose and a job but cannot be put to work.

When his will is broken and all of his power is brought under the control of the master (meekness), he can be put to great use. The purpose of his existence on the farm becomes apparent. He can be useful to the master for many great works. It is only when his will is broken and he is meek, can the great work, under the direction of the master, be accomplished.

When we lived according to our own will, unbroken, we are out of control. Our life on this earth is a life of unrealized potential that is seemingly purposeless. When we break our will, bow our knees before the master, and adopt meekness (putting ourselves under God’s control) we become useful to the master! The purpose of our life here on this earth becomes apparent. Our time here makes sense. It is only when our will is broken and we are meekly directed by God, can truly good works be accomplished.
