If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
How many times have you gone to God asking for wisdom?
“God…grant me wisdom.”
“Help me to understand what to do.”
I have uttered those prayers many times. I have asked God to lead me. I have asked God to give me wisdom The problem is that God wants to do this and when God does we often times don’t listen, believe or trust. I think it is because that we don’t like the answer we get.
“Really God? That’s what you want me to do?”
“I can’t do that.”
“That is going to be too hard.”
Imagine if we actually listened and trusted God when we prayed those prayers.
Imagine all that we could accomplish for the glory of God if we used the wisdom that God has for us.
Believe it or not, God knows what God is doing. God has been around the block a few times. God sees the whole picture (and we don’t).
So pray and believe…
…and imagine….and then pray some more…and listen…and trust…and then do.
God will be faithful.
