The will is the spiritual heart chamber of our choices. Nearly every action is preceded by a choice. In order to experience wisdom in our lives, we must surrender the will, or our choices, to God (Proverbs 8:10). In essence, it is the flip of a switch.
Jesus surrendered His will to the Father. Just before His arrest and subsequent crucifixion, Jesus said, “Father if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done” (Luke 22:42). Surrendering His will to the Father gave Jesus the wisdom to accomplish the Father’s desires.
God is asking us to flip the switch and choose to make wisdom the measurement of success in our lives. What about you? Will you humbly flip the switch of your heart and choose wisdom? The answer begins when, like Jesus, you choose to bend the knees of your heart to the Father’s will.
