The Need for Adjustableness

January 22, 2009

Adjustableness on our part is a very important thing with God. Are we adjustable? The whole question is of what God is able to do with us – of determining what God is able to use – of His having a free way to reach His end by our being adjustable.

Many of the Lord’s people stop short at adjusting to the truth. It very often means breaking with something that we have regarded as very important and very precious. We have come to see that, after all, that was only our conception of it. In God’s view that does not occupy the place at all that we had thought it occupied, and it has to be left behind. We have to adjust to something higher and fuller than that, to a more spiritual and heavenly conception of things.
