14/21 Days of Prayer
JAMES 1:5 (NKJV)
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
I was recently asked a question in fun by someone. “If you could have unlimited amounts of anything what would it be?” I immediately responded with my answer, “wisdom”. Now I’ll admit I stole this straight from King Solomon in the Bible but it’s still is a good answer today. If you have wisdom in every situation you would lack nothing. We all have made dumb mistakes that we look back on and think “man, I wish I would have done that differently.” Unfortunately, most of us go to the wrong place for wisdom in our life. We go to friends or even worse, Facebook. James tells us where we should go for the wisdom we are seeking and that’s straight to God. The Bible says God knows the end from the beginning. It also says that He knows the plans He has for you.
If you are needing wisdom in your life ask God to give you the wisdom to make the right decision.
God, thank you for giving me wisdom to make good decisions in my life. Give me wisdom in raising my kids, loving my spouse, in my friendships, at my workplace, and in every area of my life. I need you to lead me and I need you to guide me. Thank you for freely giving me your wisdom in all things. Amen.
