FLEXIBLE OR INFLEXIBLE?
I always . . . . I never . . . . Maybe it’s time to explore some of these ‘always’ and ‘never’ things in our lives.
Do we just do some things because we’ve always done them that way? Or are we participating in life under the direction and leadership of the Holy Spirit?
Doing things the same way and acting the same way can be symptoms of inflexibility. Doing and being the same can rule out the Holy Spirit’s ability to bring God’s life to your life.
Do you see it? Are there areas of inflexibility in your life which do not allow for the freedom of the Life of God to flow in and through you?
Let’s look at ourselves sto see where we could be more flexible, williing ot have ourselves and our lives arranged and re-arranged by God Himself
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. Romans 8:14
Heavenly Father, we human-sheep tend to get in ruts of inflexibility in what we do and who we are. It seems safer there. Please help me to be open to new ways, new attitudes and fresh paths from You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
