Ask God for wisdom

Ask God for wisdom

"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God." Jas 1:5 NIV

Solomon said: "Sell everything and buy Wisdom! Forage for Understanding! Don't forget one word! Don't deviate an inch! Never walk away from Wisdom-she guards your life; love her-she keeps her eye on you. Above all and before all, do this: Get Wisdom! Write this at the top of your list: Get Understanding! Throw your arms around her-believe me, you won't regret it" (Pr 4:5-8 MSG).

There are many ways to gain wisdom: 

  • (1) Gleaning from the collective knowledge of others. "By pride comes nothing but strife, but with the well-advised is wisdom" (Pr 13:10 NKJV). 

  • (2) Thinking outside the box. Statements like, "This is the way we have always done things around here," warrant scrutiny when they're used to defend ways that no longer work. 

  • (3) Writing down and reflecting on what you have learned through experience. 

  • (4) Not rushing to closure. Growth is always a work in progress.

Creativity is untidy and can be unnerving. The ability to stay focused and faith filled in the midst of change is a hallmark of growth and maturity. 

But the ultimate source of wisdom is God's Word! "For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding" (Pr 2:6 NKJV). 

"The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy" (Jas 3:17 NKJV). 

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you" (Ps 32:8 NKJV). 

Refuse to live an unexamined life.

Refuse to live an uncommitted life. 

Refuse to live an unguided life. 

Today, ask God for wisdom.
