"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." - James 1:5
Got wisdom? Most of us remember a while back the commercials and ads that would ask "Got Milk?" Do you have wisdom today? The Bible tells us that if any of us lack wisdom that we should ask God and He promises to give us wisdom. In fact, the above verse says that God will give to us liberally when we petition Him for wisdom.
During His earthly ministry Jesus taught His disciples to always ask God to meet their needs and depend on Him totally. We should do the same. No matter what your situation or need is today, you can go to the Father and bring your petition before Him. The genuine heartfelt prayer of the child God will produce powerful change in them and in the world. Christ told thee disciple that they had not because they asked not. We are plagued by the same problem today. Do you go to the Father with your cares, burdens, and petitions for wisdom?
Do you have questions about your future that you have no way of answering? Do you have needs that are impossible to meet by your power or ability? Do you sincerely desire for God to give you wisdom and guidance for your life? If the answer is yes, then ask Jesus Christ today and then keep asking Him everyday to meet your needs.
Man typically have the reputation of not admitting that they are lost and not asking for directions. However, we ALL are guilty of this when it comes to our spiritual walk with Christ. We convince ourselves that we know what we are doing, we know how to handle the situation, we don't need any help, and that we can reach our destination without any directions. Many a man will keep up the charade of thinking that he is not lost until he realizes that it is hopeless and he is lost. Until he stops and asks for directions, he will never arrive at the correct destination.
How many of us today are guilty of the same thing in our spiritual walk with Christ? Are you willing to admit that you need direction and wisdom today? If you need wisdom or direction from Christ for your life, all you have to do is ask.
Prayer For Today:
Lord, help me when I have questions about the direction of my life or when I need wisdom to turn to You. When I am weak, may I seek Your strength; when I am confused, help me to seek Your wisdom; and when I am discouraged, may I be reminded of Your love, mercy, and grace. May I trust you for everything that I need. In Jesus name, Amen!
