I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and very circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. ~ Philippians 4: 12-13
Dear One, flexibility is defined as the ability to flex. Simple enough. It seems as though that such a simple definition would be easy to carry out. Not so. There are days when life doesn’t go as planned. Interruptions happen. It is important to be pliable. I am not merely talking about circumstances. Flexibility applies to spiritual matters as well as interruptions in a daily schedule or a delayed appointment.
Digging your heels in and not being able to be malleable in your spiritual life does nothing to help you grow. In some ways, flexibility gets a bad rap because it seems, to some people, to be associated with compromise. But, Dear One, when I am working it requires a supple heart not a hard one. It requires an open spirit to move with My spirit.
A rigid tree breaks off in the wind, but one that bends with the wind does not break, it flows. It joins the movement of the breeze. I need you to be flexible like the trees in the wind. Swaying with changes in direction. Flowing with the pivots which are required in day to day life. Staying open to my words to you. Taking steps when I show you situations where you need to forgive. Listening to me when I point out an error or a thought pattern that is contrary to My heart.
This is not compromise, it is transformation. This is not concession, it is grace. This is not giving in, it is humility. Learning to be flexible is a sign of growth and maturity. Relinquishing control of the way you see things and bending to My instruction and My vision is the ability to flex at its best. Stretching yourself is healthy. Flow, Beloved. Do not be scared of my movement. Trust my words. Trust my heart is for you. Flex with me and you will see.
