From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God 

O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like You in heaven above or on earth below; You keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their heart. (1 Kings 8:23; 2 Chronicles 6:14)

I know that You are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness, a God who relents from sending calamity. (Jonah 4:2)

The Works of God

Every animal of the forest is Yours, and the cattle on a thousand hills. You know every bird in the mountains, and everything that moves in the field is Yours. (Psalm 50:10–11)

The heavens are Yours; the earth also is Yours; You founded the world and all its fullness. (Psalm 89:11)

My Relationship to God

The joy of the Lord is my strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)

Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk in integrity. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in You! (Psalm 84:10–12)

The Character I Want to Cultivate 

I will receive the words of wisdom and treasure her commands within me, turning my ear to wisdom and applying my heart to understanding. If I cry for discernment and lift up my voice for understanding, if I seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures, then I will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. (Proverbs 2:1–5)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10)

My Relationship to Others

I will discipline my child while there is hope and not be a willing party to his death. (Proverbs 19:18)

The rod and reproof impart wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother. (Proverbs 29:15)
