Psalm 111:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.”
The Scene: Hot air balloon festival–representing Christians and the choices they make throughout their lives. The people on the gondolas/baskets control the flame from the propane gas burners, which provides the heat that fills the balloon with hot air and causes the conveyance to lift off the ground and soar into the air.
Many of the balloons drifted along together, (they had caught the wind of the Holy Spirit). Christians can turn their fire (zeal) up or down. They can drift along in peace with the Holy Spirit or they can get into turbulence or even come down somewhere prematurely, missing out on staying in peace in the presence of the Lord.
They may also miss their blessings, but they can choose to go where God wants them to be spiritually, with opportunities to stay close to our Lord Jesus Christ.
James 1:5-6 “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.”
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.”
