they are not all angels

22_n

One of the things that God and most men find unacceptable is the sad, loud mouthed, bossy, control freaked woman in her army boots..   Proverbs 11:22, “As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.”   “It is better to dwell in a corner of a housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house,” —Proverbs 21:9

“It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman,” — Proverbs 21:19   Being loud isa having a turbulent, agitated spirit which shows itself in being mouthy, aggressive, yelling, irate. Rather be  quiet, that is have a self controlled, or peaceful spirit.   Now we all can make it easy or difficult for people around us to work with us, to live with us, to love us. One big problem is learning to guard our tongues—

.

1 Timothy 3:8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;  

 

.

James 1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.  

.

James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!   6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.   8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.   1 Peter 3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

.

  1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.  

.

God never intended us to live on our own. We STILL DO need the others. I would suggest that not only do get along with  other people who also do struggle with the same issue, even sin but especially also also get with people who evidence grace in this area of their lives who evidence a humble and a meek spirit. Hang around them too. Spend time with them, and ask them to pray for you.   Ephesians 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.   1 Peter 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.  

.

You see, voluntary subjection, whether that is in marriage or in any other part of life, is not merely the ability to grit your teeth.  Of  “I sit on the outside, but on the inside I’m still standing.” That is not subjection. A meek and a quiet spirit is a spirit which joyfully embraces the will of God for my life, joyfully embraces the will of God for my place. The meekness and quietness consists in this: all that is in Christ is mine, the inheritance of glory, the precious blood of Jesus Christ, salvation (full salvation) in Jesus Christ. 

.

Both meekness and quietness are also to be the expression of a women  accepting and embracing her divinely-appointed place before Jesus Christ  and of wife’s subjection to her husband. We must not also now forget this latter context. It is speaking of the duty of the wife to be subject to her husband. That can only be in the way of a meek and quiet spirit. A meek and quiet spirit is a spirit which embraces the will of God for her and,  a married woman, subjection to her  husband too.   “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” 1 Peter 3:3-4   The words  “ meek and quiet doesn’t refer solely to volume, it is also a heart attitude of quietness. It is a picture of one rightfully  resting in the Lord Jesus Christ, not being anxious “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger” (Proverbs 15:1).  

.

“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4).    A meek or gentle spirit is not a spirit which is  insistent on one’s own rights firstly, solely. It is not pushy, assertive, demanding one’s own way always.

.

Moses was the meekest of all men, we read in the Scriptures. But Moses’ strength was that he did not insist on himself. He was not stuck on himself. He did not push himself forward. He did not look   in terms of himself and his own ambitions of glory. He was a meek and gentle man. He sought the will of God and firmly followed it. Meekness, then, is the willing surrender, by the grace of God, of our own rights, our own ease, our own advance, and a willingness to serve the advance of God in others. That is a meek and gentle spirit.   “He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children” (Psalms 113:9).  

.

This word “meek” is used in the beatitudes (Matt. 5:5), “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” And it is used two times in reference to Jesus Christ. In Matthew 11:28-30 the Lord says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my burden upon you, … for I am meek and lowly of heart.” Again, in Matthew 21:5, we read of the Lord’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem when He rode upon the colt, the foal of an ass, “Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.” We could translate this word “meek” as “gentle.” We read, for instance, in Galatians 5 that “the fruit of the spirit is love, peace, joy, gentleness.”

.

Again, we read in Galatians! 6:1 that if we have an erring brother in our church we are to restore such a one in the spirit of meekness or gentleness.   I Thessalonians 4:11, “And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business.”  

.

Make yourself a meek and quiet spirit by the daily early morning focus of your time with the Lord each day and withyour prayer for yourself and the others too. With the help of the holy spirit Search the Word for help, guidance, as you read it each day, for even the verses that help you toward a meek and quiet spirit. Look for ones that give you direction on what you should be doing and what you should not be doing.  

.

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14).   “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).   “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).   “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10).  

.

Do learn  to rely more on His Spirit than on your own  own carnal, reactive spirit in any given situation. “Be anxious for nothing. But by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which passes all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6  

.

Matthew 8:26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.   Matthew 14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?   Matthew 16:8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?   Luke 12:28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?  

.

Luke 19:17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.  

.

BY THE WAY HERE ALSO IS WHAT I RIGHTFULLY REALLY DISLIKE.. RELATIVES WHO ARE NICE TO YOU, OR GOD  ONLY ON THE HOLIDAYS, CHRISTMAS, EASTER, THANKSGIVING DAY, BIRTHDAYS AND FALSELY  NEGLECT YOU TREAT YOU LIKE HELL THE REST OF THE YEAR.

.

  Is 42: 1    Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. 5    Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. 17    They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.18 Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’S servant?20 Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.23 Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come?24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.25 Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.   Father, we thank Thee for Thy Word. We pray, indeed, that that Word may be a great power to our lives. Amen.
