“Jesus Calls Us to His Rest: Meekness Is His Method”
by A. W. Tozer   
July 13th, 2014

With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love. Ephesians 4:2

The meek man cares not at all who is greater than he, for he has long ago decided that the esteem of the world is not w
orth the effort. He develops toward himself a kindly sense of humor and learns to say, “Oh, so you have been overlooke
d? They placed someone else before you! They have whispered that you are pretty small stuff after all? And now you fe
el hurt because the world is saying about you the very things you have been saying about yourself! Only yesterday you
were telling God that you were nothing, a mere worm of the dust. Where is your consistency? Come on, humble yourself
, and cease to care what men may think!”
Rest is simply release from the heavy, crushing burden borne by mankind and the word Jesus used for ‘burden’ means
a load carried or toil borne to the point of exhaustion. The ‘rest’ is not something we do—it is what comes to us when we
cease to do.
The meek man is not a human mouse afflicted with a sense of his own inferiority. Rather he may be in his moral life as
bold as a lion and as strong as Samson; but he has stopped being fooled about himself. He has accepted God’s estimat
e of his own life. He knows he is as weak and helpless as God has declared him to be, but paradoxically, he knows at th
e same time that he is in the sight of God of more importance than angels. In himself nothing; in God, everything. He res
ts perfectly content to allow God to place His own values!
