But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach and it will be given to him.
We all lack wisdom from time to time. Some of us just lack it a little more than others do. Wisdom is different than knowledge. We can read the Bible every morning until we know it from cover to cover and still lack the wisdom we need to make it through certain situations. You can’t really be blamed (or blame yourself) for not having enough wisdom. It’s what you do with that lack of wisdom that matters the most.
Scripture tells us that we are to ask God if ever we come across a situation that calls for more wisdom than we currently have. This sounds simple enough, but unfortunately we don’t take a hold of this promise as often as we probably should. For instance, when was the last time you stopped in the middle of your day to ask God for insight into a specific problem? The opportunities are certainly there! We’re just too distracted by our own self confidence to notice them when they come up.
Practice leaning on God’s wisdom today. Don’t presume that you can figure everything out on your own just because you think you did it yesterday.
