Davidisms: Blessed Are the Flexible for They Shall Not Be Broken

Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be broken.

While it’s not in the Bible, it’s a message that could be! Because ultimately, it’s about our faith. Trusting God more than ourselves. Surrendering all parts of our lives to him. Leaning not on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Our fallen flesh has tendencies, one of which is to hold on too tightly to the things of this world. Such as rigid convictions that may or may not be true. Loose-knit ideologies. Political dogma.

Basically, anything and everything of this temporary world. That which comes and goes.

If you are to have one place of inflexibility in your life, let it be Jesus! King David understood that in an ever-changing world, there is only One who does not change. “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold” (Psalm 18:2).

Be inflexible in your faith in God and his promises. And flexible about everything else in life. Go with the flow, as they say.

Then, when the wind blows strongly, your house will stand because it’s built upon him alone (Matthew 7:24-29).
