The Word of God is not an adviser for us, it is an authority to us. We need to respond to it accordingly. The words "mine" and "my" are universal (the exception would prove the rule). These possessive words help us to see that there is an issue with the human heart--we desire to possess things as "mine", no just have things. Just as the King of Nineveh arose from his physical throne to get that which is spiritual, we must do the same.
