“Every time you trust God’s wisdom and do whatever he says, even when you don’t understand it, you deepen your friendship with God.” —Rick Warren
Wisdom is, and starts with, the humility to accept that you don’t have all the answers but dare to ask the right questions. And who better to ask than your all-knowing, Heavenly Father?
If you’ve prayed more than ten times in your life, you’ve probably asked for money, maybe even millions. And if you’re worried about where you’ll rest your head [on any given night], then you ask for shelter.
The hungry pray for food, and the sick cry-out for healing, but how many people [actually] ask God for wisdom?
The Bible reminds us in James 1:5 that God gives wisdom generously when we ask for it. And He does so without judgment or ridicule because He knows your heart, your situations, struggles, and needs.
So the next time you find yourself looking for answers:
1. Ask God to direct your path.
2. Acknowledge that His plan is far superior to whatever you can think of.
3. Admit that you are powerless and that he is in control.
4. And then thank Him for his perfect wisdom.
