The Attributes of God

The Lord of hosts is wonderful in counsel and great in wisdom. (Isaiah 28:29)

In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (Colossians 2:3)

The Works of God 

The Lord has said, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen for His inheritance. (Psalm 33:12)

My Relationship to God

I know that if my earthly house, or tent, is destroyed, I have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this house I groan, longing to be clothed with my heavenly dwelling, because when I am clothed, I will not be found naked. For while I am in this tent, I groan, being burdened, because I do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed,so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now it is God who has made me for this very purpose and has given me the Spirit as a guarantee. (2 Corinthians 5:15)

I make it my ambition to please the Lord, whether I am at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. (2 Corinthians 5:910)

The Character I Want to Cultivate 

I will watch and pray so that I will not fall into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Matthew 26:41)

I will devote myself to prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. (Colossians 4:2)

My Relationship to Others

I will obey those who are in authority over me in all things, not with external service as a pleaser of men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. Whatever I do, I will work at it with all my heart, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that I will receive the reward of the inheritance from the Lord. It is the Lord Christ I am serving. (Colossians 3:2224)

I will provide my subordinates with what is just and fair, knowing that I also have a Master in heaven. (Colossians 4:1)
