Are You Asking for Wisdom?

James 1:5
“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

Think about this: God will not only give us wisdom in our moments of need; He will give it generously.

A man can go his whole life living by worldly wisdom only to become a sudden prayer warrior when he gets cornered in a crisis.

However, God’s wisdom is not like a bolt of lightning — it’s the kind of wisdom that grows in your spirit on a daily basis as you feed yourself on the Word of God, drawing near to Him.

Receiving wisdom is simple: You ask for it, God gives it to you, and then you practice it.

Ephesians 1:17
“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better”

When you ask for it, He gives it to you. You practice it. And before you know it, you are living by God’s wisdom, not the man’s natural wisdom.

Instead of waiting to seek God’s wisdom when the next crisis comes, commit to seeking His wisdom every day.

Pray Lord, give me Your wisdom. I know You are a generous God, and here I am, ready to obey. May Your Spirit make my heart willing to follow You at all times so that I might practice Your wisdom throughout my life.

This is my Word of Hope for you, my friend.
