Don’t worry. This is not the result of a New Year’s goal to start blogging. I just found this little bit of awesomeness in my time with God this morning and thought maybe it will help you too.
James 1:5 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.
So. If you need wisdom for dealing with your situation today, ask God, and it will be given to you.
But here’s the part I really love. “Without finding fault.” Meaning, if you find yourself in a tough spot and ask God for wisdom, He will NOT look back at you and list all the reasons why it’s your own dumb fault for getting into that spot. He will NOT make you feel sufficiently guilty before He gives you the ability to make a good decision.
He simply gives generously to all.
It doesn’t even cost you. Jesus paid for your free access to God’s wisdom.
Proverbs 2:7 He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest.
So. If you’re just honest about where you are today and ask God for the brains to get you through or out of or around your situation, your request will be granted.
And He’s not stingy about it. He doesn’t eke out a tiny little smidge of smarts.
He grants a treasure of common sense. A treasure! Not a tip! An abundant wealth of all you need to make the choices that will carry you someplace good.
Go for the ask.
Good stuff, right?!
