Have you ever prayed extensively for wisdom due to your circumstances in life? Maybe you’re facing a major decision or you’re in the midst of a transition. How do you get wisdom from God in your time of need? Read more for what Proverbs says is the first step to becoming wise.

Ask God for wisdom

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.

 

When you need wisdom, God answers! 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." The answer for how to get wisdom from God is in proverbs. Read more for what Proverbs says is the first step to becoming wise.

 

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

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

How to get wisdom from God: Trust Him

The interesting thing is that I never before equated trust with wisdom. Yet 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 God first?
