I do not rely on my own natural inclinations, but listen to the Spirit prompt me from my meditation on God's Law-Word.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.
Psalm 111:10

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. -- Romans 8:28-29

O how love I Thy Law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through Thy Commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for Thy Testimonies are my meditation. -- Psalm 119:97
