Lately, I’ve been praying extensively for wisdom. My circumstances have brought me to a place where decisions have to be made, and change is looming. I know I’m in the midst of a transition of sorts, and I am seeking God’s heart for what that looks like and how it will happen.

Scripture tells us that “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” (James 1:5). What a great God we serve who promises to give us wisdom generously and not find fault with us for needing it or asking for it. He delights in us knowing His heart.

Circumstances and situations arise that require we make decisions, sometimes life altering decisions. The most important thing we can do is seek Him in faith.

I remember talking with a friend and in my confusion and despair, I commented, “I just need more faith to trust Him more.” Yet the amazing thing is that He responds by saying, “Ask and it will be given.”

The interesting thing is that I never before equated trust with wisdom. Yet this morning as I was seeking answers in His word, knowing I needed wisdom, I decided to read through Proverbs, the book of wisdom. I started with the first verse of the first chapter and didn’t even make it ten verses before the Lord spoke to my heart about the relationship between trust and wisdom: “How does a man become wise? The first step is to trust and reverence the Lord!” (Proverbs 1:7 Living Bible)

As if we don’t have enough reasons to trust Him already, God tells us clearly in His word that if we need wisdom, we must first trust the giver of all wisdom!

Is there an area of your life that you need wisdom? Will you trust Him first?

 
James 1:5 says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." What a great God we serve who promises to give us wisdom generously & not find fault with us for needing it or asking for it. He delights in us knowing His heart.
