With so many choices to decide from, sometimes one of life’s great challenges is just simply to know what to do. Decisions can weigh on us. Choosing what path to take can be serious business in relationships with people close to our hearts, in our work arrangements as employees or managers and in the spiritual direction of our life. What do we do when we really need a solution, when we need a problem fixed? Do we honestly look at the facts and gain the information we need? It is important to not only look at and clarify the reality of the situation, especially if there is money involved, but we also need information beyond just facts. Especially when it comes to the toughest solutions we may encounter, we need God’s wisdom.
James 1:5-8 NRSV, “If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you. But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind; for the doubter, being double-minded and unstable in every way, must not expect to receive anything from the Lord.”
God is the source of solutions. Creation itself is the product of call and response. God said, and the creation responded. God will provide wisdom and not hold it back from you, we just need to respond to His ultimate and loving direction. He always has our best interest in mind, and He certainly sees the overall picture. Our times are in His hands (Psalms 31:15). Do we reach up and put our hand into His? He knows everything about us and still loves us. You are FULLY-KNOWN and loved by God the Father. Ask in faith and get the wisdom that is promised for your solution.
