Knowing God (Week 4): Got Wisdom?

gotwisdom

Life has a way of presenting situations in which we are unclear as to what the best way forward is.

An attribute of God that He can pass onto us when we are in Christ, is wisdom. God is infinitely wise: “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!” (Romans 11:33).

Yet, He invites us to ask for wisdom: “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5).

Solomon asked God for wisdom in the Old Testament and God opened His floodgates of wisdom (and more) to Solomon. Interestingly, notice why Solomon asked for wisdom here: “Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours” (2 Chronicles 1:10)?

Solomon wanted help leading in the position that God had given to him.

What has God given you that you need help with? 

Maybe (like me) God’s gifted you with a child, and you need wisdom to know when to discipline your child and when to offer grace.

Maybe you want to lead your family better, but need wisdom to know how to best carry out that desire.

Maybe you need wisdom navigating relationships at your workplace.

Maybe you’ve found yourself in charge of many and you need wisdom to lead them well.

No matter what it is, God invites us to ask Him, and the God of infinite wisdom will pass some of His wisdom on to us.

Join me today in going to Him with what you need wisdom for.
