the capacity of self will

Ezekiel 10:15-17 (JDV)

Ezekiel 10:15 The cherubs rose up; these were the living beings I had seen by the Chebar Canal.
Ezekiel 10:16 When the cherubs moved, the wheels moved beside them, and when they lifted their wings to rise from the land, even then the wheels did not veer away from them.
Ezekiel 10:17 When the cherubs stopped, the wheels stood still, and when they rose up, the wheels rose up with them, because the breath of the living beings was in them.

the capacity of self will

As a symbol, these cherubs represent all the living beings, and the wheels represent their capacity for voluntary action. They all have received this gift from their creator, to whom they are responsible.

Remember your creator, because you are one of those beings. You have the capacity of self will, but that is not the same as free will. You are not independent of your creator. You are responsible to him.

LORD, give us the wisdom to direct our wills to accomplish yours.
