“If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt…???
(James 1:15 & 16).
Tracy had her own business.? She loved being her own boss.? It was challenging.? But at times she felt her own wisdom was somewhat lacking.? She really needed wisdom in knowing whether to go ahead in one particular area right now.? It could cause growth in her business.? It could also throw her into a tailspin if her timing was wrong.? How could she know?
All of us face decisions…important decisions.? And God promises to give us wisdom, His wisdom.? He simply says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.? But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt…???? (James 1:15 & 16).
If you face a decision today and don’t know what to do, ask God for wisdom.? Believe He will give it to you.? Tracy shared three steps she uses as she asks God for wisdom.? As she considers her decision she asks God to help her answer these questions:
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that you have promised me a generous amount of your wisdom. I can’t see the right way to turn right now.? I need that wisdom.? I ask for your Holy Spirit to guide me.? Please help me to think through these steps and to consider all aspects of this decision.? Help me to be wise in understanding what steps to take right now.? Please help me to be patient and wait if things are not lining up.? I look to you to guide me and help me and to give me the wisdom that I need. Thank you for your love!? ? ? In Jesus name Amen.
Has God Given you Wisdom for a Reason?
