If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him (KJV) James 1:5
In the above verse, James is reminding each one of us that our God is a God who gives, gives generously, gives without reproach, and gives to all who ask. This verse could not have come at a better time. When the entire world is going through tough stints and even making simple decisions has become quite challenging, Jesus our Lord is promising wisdom to those who seek it. Wisdom is the need of the hour in today`s situation.
The Holy Bible emphasizes time and time again on “Godly Wisdom.” Proverbs 2:6 says, “For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” This verse is a reminder of God`s true character. God is a God of wisdom. This should encourage all of us to seek wisdom from God. Whatever we ask for, must always be coupled with Godly wisdom.
Let the above verse invoke a desire in all of us to ask for His wisdom as we go through our daily trials. He will not just give us wisdom but will give it lavishly as He delights in abundance. We can count on our ever faithful God to turn all our trails into joy as we march confidently into our unseen future in Godly wisdom.
