“ 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.” James 1:5
What is wisdom? Consider this definition: “the ability to judge correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding” (H. Lockyer). In other words, it’s how you manage the affairs of your life. The quality of life that you will have on this earth is dependent on the choices you make. To choose correctly from the many options facing you, you need wisdom.
You and I need wisdom from God.
God says that if you lack wisdom, ask Him for it. He loves you so much and desires that you live out your full potential on this earth, but you can’t do it without Him. It’s not in our design. God alone knows the outcome of every decision and will lead you in the path that will bring Him glory and prosper you.
What do you face today?
Whatever it is, you need wisdom and God will make it available to you—if you would only ask. And, not only will God give it to you, He will give it liberally. With God you will always receive more than you had expected. He’s good like that!
So don’t doubt and don’t waver, believe His word and watch Him show Himself faithful. God has made you a promise that if you ask for wisdom, He will give it to you liberally and He will keep His promise! God’s word is good.
