The Lord God is mighty.

His vast strength and power are impossible to comprehend. If you look at the massive universe we live in and try to quantify the power of the one who called it into existence, you would be terribly undercounting the actual power of the most high God.

The Lord says of Himself that He is meek and lowly of heart. He means that He is gentle and down-to-earth in  a manner of speaking.

This does not correspond at all to the actually power and majesty and authority that belongs to our Lord. 

In our common experience in this world, when people are given authority and power over us, they often act hautily, arrogantly and rashly. Among us humans, most often,  the greater the stature, the greater the pride.

However, the God of heaven demonstrates the exact opposite. His ungraspable power over all things and His unreachable stature is accompanied by His gentle and humble Spirit.

He models the perfect stance we humans should have. In a specific instance, Jesus washed the feet of His disciples at the last supper. To clarify this, he once said that if we are to be great, we must become servants of all. We must always prefer other people over ourselves. 

This is the example set by the mighty God. 

Pray for strength to follow it.
