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, you’ve probably asked for money, maybe even millions. If you’re worried about where you’ll rest your head [on any given night], then you’ve asked 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 that God gives wisdom generously when we ask for it. And He does so without judgment or ridicule because He knows our heart, situations, struggles, and needs.
So the next time you find yourself looking for answers:
– Ask God to direct your path.
– Acknowledge that His plan is superior to yours.
– Admit that you are powerless and that He is in control.
– And then thank Him for his perfect wisdom.
Father, I sometimes feel like I am unsure of which path to take. Please guide me in making choices that will lead me to a happy and fulfilling life. I also pray for the wisdom to know when I need to ask for help and for the humility to accept advice from others. Thank you for always being there for me. Amen.
