The wise warrior determines to follow Jesus. Wisdom is paired with peace, frightens Satan and glorifies God. We are victorious in this life and in eternity when we depend on God's wisdom to protect us and steady us as we battle and share the Gospel of Christ. We learn wisdom through the prompting of the Spirit and the study of the Word. Surrendering ourselves to resort to God's teachings versus our own ideas takes initiative and determination. However, in this context, surrendering doesn't mean that we give up; it means we are winning.
