Scripture: Galatians 5:23
Galatians 5:23 says that meekness is a fruit of the Spirit. Meekness is the Greek word prah-ot-ace. Prah-ot-ace is a word that is best described in the movie Ben-Hur when we see the protagonists’ team of white horses refusing to flinch in the chariot race and carrying him all the way to victory. The horses are prah-ot-ace. They are courage and power bridled. They did not move to the right and they did not move to the left unless the master’s hand moved them in that direction. Meekness does not mean weakness. It is power under the direction of the Spirit, doing what God wants done in the right place at the right time, in spite of intense opposition, for His very best. Meekness, on the Priestly side, guarantees something dramatic on the Kingly side. If we develop the meekness of Christ, we can access the judicial Kingly side of the living God.
