James 1v5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”

How wise am I? How important is wisdom in the situations you are facing? James has a simple promise for you – ask God for wisdom and he will give it to you! There is an Old Testament proverb “The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom” (Proverbs 15v33). The first step to true wisdom is to appreciate God’s character and power, and see our situation in this perspective. The second step to true wisdom is to think and act according to this perspective.

God is where my life begins, God is where my life resides, God is where my life ends. With my life in that place, neither riches nor poverty, neither sickness nor health, neither good or bad can harm me. “No, in all these things we are more that conquerors through him who loved us.” (Romans 8v37) Then we shall be truly wise.

May God give you and I wisdom in every situation.

With much blessing,
