God is Making Me More


Not setting my affections on plans or places that could be changed by those whom I am serving.

1. Capable of being turned or forced from a straight line or form without breaking.
2. Capable of yielding to intreaties, arguments or other moral force; that may be persuaded to compliance; not invincibly rigid or obstinate; not inexorable.

Webster's, 1st ed., 1828

I am always ready to listen to moral arguments, and to grow more like my Savior. I am willing to be bent into His shape. I do not break when my old habits and ways of thinking are shown to be unBiblical.

Just as Christ gave His life for His people, I am not called to rule, but to serve (Mark 10:42-45).   I sense and adapt to the wishes of the one I serve.

I conserve my time and energy to complete my priorities.

I remain free to accept the best course of action.

I change plans if unexpected conditions require it.

I do not set my affections or ideas on plans which could be changed by God or others.

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
-- Colossians 3:2

In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.
-- Ephesians 1:11-12

I will meditate in Thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways. I will delight myself in Thy statutes: I will not forget Thy Word.
-- Psalm 119:15

This isn't that New Age "Positive Thinking" stuff, is it??
