Pray for wisdom

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” James 1:5 ESV.

Last week, we read that the fear of the Lord is the path to knowledge and wisdom. This week, James reminded us with his advice on obtaining God’s wisdom in life. Wisdom that makes God-serving and God-pleasing decisions can only come from our loving God himself. Believers are to pray for this wise discernment in their lives as an act of faith and dependence. This is especially so when dealing with trials and suffering, for instance. On the other hand, as we ask for His wisdom, we must already be willing to obey His revealed Word. When faced with difficult choices in life, our first response should be to turn toward God who delights to give generously of His wisdom.

Have you been struggling with tough decisions recently? Do not be hesitant to pray to God today for His wisdom to guide you.
