Wisdom/Direction

Every week and sometimes every day we are faced with decisions. We are not always confident that we are making the right decision. Other times, we know we are not making the right decision, but do it anyway. So, how do we know how to choose the right?

In James Chapter 1 it says “5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; 8he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.”

James is using some pretty strong language here and basically saying that God will give us WISDOM if we just ask. The only condition is that we have to believe that it will happen. With the wisdom of God, wouldn’t our paths be so much clearer? Wouldn’t we have so much more confidence that we are choosing the right path, job, business, partner, etc.?

How will God give us such wisdom? That’s up to Him. It could come through a friend, a family member, a pastor, a trusted advisor, or even directly from God. So, all we have to do is ask, believe, and receive!

Blessings,

Pastor B
