The calm, controlled strength from the Spirit. There is a direct tie between humility and meekness (from Online Bible Greek Lexicon, 5898):

tapeinofrosunh is humility, not the making of one's self small when he is really great, but thinking little of one's self, because this is in a sense the right estimate for any human being, however great.

praothv is founded upon this idea, and goes beyond it. It is the attitude of mind and behavior which, arising from humility, disposes one to receive with gentleness and meekness whatever may come to him from others or from God.

Jesus, the all-powerful God, is meek, humble, gentle Mat 11:29,21:5; 2Cor 10:1
