Does anyone lack wisdom? (Um, yeah!) Ask God!
Today’s One Verse is one of the great promises of the Bible, yet very few Christians know about it or act on it. James opens his letter with this plea: “Does anyone lack wisdom? Ask God! He will give it to you!” What an awesome verse! What an amazing promise. Do you need more wisdom in this life (Um, yeah!). Ok, Ask God, because He promises to give it to you. It doesn’t get any more simple than that! You need it? Ask for it. He’ll give it to you! There is no technicality or red tape. There is no trick. You need it? Ask for it. He’ll give it. If you are reading this, I STRONGLY encourage you to take God up on His promise. Add into your daily prayer life. I truly believe this one simple prayer can alter the path of your life. How would life be different if you would have had God’s wisdom at every decision? Exactly! When I read that, it hurts a little, thinking about some past life choices I’ve made. But it is also an encouragement to be serious about asking God for wisdom for every future decision. If we take Him up on this promise, our future is in much better hands!
