We can be secure with ourselves and confident in our faculties and still be meek.

The state of being humble just means genuinely not having an exaggerated opinion of one’s self and/or abilities. Not exhibiting a lofty attitude; not being overly proud in one’s own achievements and carried away by their obtained accomplishments.

We should love, respect, and healthily estimate ourselves, and know what we are actually capable of doing or not doing.

Inasmuch, we should also recognize that we cannot take any credit for our bestowment of gifts, talents or special traits. All recognition and praise go to the creator who created within us the forte of our entire being. Everything we do and are able to do is entirely through God almighty.

We are a mere small example of his power. So yes, we are confident, bold, and valuable within our identity in Jesus Christ. Aside from that, we are not anything at all.

As long as we know, desire, and rejoice in always wanting to turn to the Lord for help and direction we truly show our humility and meekness.

We do not bow down to or give in to anyone but to the authority of God.
