Meekness, Mercy and Truth

Psa 25:9  The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
Psa 25:10  All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
1) poor, humble, afflicted, meek
a) poor, needy
b) poor and weak
c) poor, weak and afflicted
d) humble, lowly, meek

Mat 5:3  Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

2Cor 12:9  And he said unto me, 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.
Through meekness and faith we receive the power of Christ and the grace to learn from him.
mercy and truth
We need not fear mercy and truth, unless we are unforgiving and deceitful.   the goodness of God is greater than the wrath of man and the goodness of man cannot save him from the wrath of God. Jesus is our mercy and truth. In him we are saved from our sins and blessed.
Psa 85:10  Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Psa 85:11  Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Psa 85:12  Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
Psa 85:13  Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
If we keep his covenant and testimonies. The New Covenant in His blood is our testimony. By grace are ye saved by faith, it is the gift of God. (Eph 2:8.9) Faith in Jesus Christ brings to us the blessings of God. The meek shall walk in his mercy and truth.
