Step Six thought and scripture - Day 1.
Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Having agreed with God about my sinful behavior, I now ask for His forgiveness through Christ and openly acknowledge that I am forgiven according to Scripture.
As we look to God to remove the character defects and sinful behavior from our life we need to posture ourselves in humility. We need to stay in a place of humbleness for Him to work within us.
James 4:10 New International Version (NIV)
10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
