The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. – Psalm 111:10
As written about in the post “Harness the Power of the Holy Spirit”, the laws in the Old Testament provide wisdom but they are so strict that it was impossible to keep the demands required to be holy. That’s why Jesus died on the Cross. If we surrender all to Jesus, His sacrifice takes our sin away so we are blessed with wise choices.
We raise a white flag
And to our ways succumb
But lift the Cross high
And accept the love that has come.
Because of Jesus, the Holy Spirit gives the advantage of thinking outside the box when conflicting circumstances come up in our daily activities. Like the song White Flag by Chris Tomlin, we surrender all to Jesus and then have available the power of the Holy Spirit to make the right choices in all we do.
