Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
Gentle defined having a mild and kind nature or manner.
The Lord is a wonderful Lord. God’s nature is gentle. He is not a mean angry God. God is love and love is gentle. God’s dealing with man has always been rooted in tender mercy and loving kindness. It seems so weird that anyone could ever not love Him. He is extremely affectionate and very passionate. His love is tangible and full of expression. God is not rough or cold in His fellowship with us. He is warm and comforting to those who love Him. His approach is kind and His manner sweet. God’s gentleness makes us great because gentleness is a fruit of love and love is the foundation of all true greatness.
As you live a life fully controlled by the love of God, the fruit of gentleness will lead you to greatness.
