Daily Message – 7 Sept 2021

“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
James 1:5 NLT

Folks, we live in a complicated world, and we will be faced with manh complicated decisions. The good news for us is that we have a resource we can use. God, the source of all wisdom, invites us to share our dilemmas with Him. He makes his wisdom available to us.

But, in order to take full advantage of the opportunity, we first need to empty ourselves of our own “wisdom.” Sometimes when we ask for advice, we have already made up our minds, and we are just looking for someone to agree with us. That might work with friends, but not with God. If we’re going to tap into his wisdom, we need to forget about what we want or what we think should happen. We need to let Him guide us.

If you’re not sure how to recognize God’s voice, try talking to Him from different perspectives about the situation you’re facing. Talk about the pros, the reasons you should do something. Then talk about the cons, the reasons you shouldn’t do it. Let Him work in your heart and mind to help you realize which direction is best.

If you really want God’s wisdom, just ask Him for it.
