God gives Divine Wisdom that far exceeds the wisdom of what we obtain on our own, in fact there is really no comparison.
The Bible says in Ist Corinthians 1:25 “For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.”
Which Wisdom do we seek? That which God provides I hope, but how? “Ask for Wisdom” the Bible says.
James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
“Without finding fault”, God makes it clear that He will not judge our motives or reasons for asking (as long as they are not knowingly wrong and sinful”. He understands “when we are weak He is strong” and we should ask His insight on situations of concern to us.
The Bible also indicates we must ask through faith and not doubting. To doubt tends to indicate we don’t trust God or that we don’t respect Him in our situation enough to believe He will do what He says.
For Christians everywhere at any time, don’t miss the goodness of what is yours for the asking and believing.
A word of care though, the proper discernment of wisdom is critical, we need to always compare what wisdom we receive to the Bible (the Word of God) to make sure the wisdom we obtain is indeed Wisdom from God. He will never give you Wisdom that conflicts with the Word of God. Always important to pray and meditate on Wisdom you receive and make sure you have indeed received it from God.
Heavenly Father, God of the Universe, Majestic, Mighty and Awesome, full of Compassion and Kindness, forgive us for any sins and anything that might hinder our relationship with You.
Give us Divine Wisdom this day to consider all You have taught us and that You will reveal to us, to guide us and help us, in the things we do and say.
Help us to discern Your thoughts and guidance You give to us, to determine your voice from ours.
We know Your Ways are higher than ours and we trust you.
Bless us and others, and may we bless You and others, with the same forgiveness, kindness, love, and compassion you have given to us.
Let us reach out to others and encourage them in a positive way, show kindness, consideration and be a help to them.
Thank You for all things including most of all our Savior Jesus Christ.
We also ask you be a Protector and Healer to the Countries and States that have been affected by the recent storms and bring the people comfort and peace.
We pray for your blessings and abundant peace and generosity to all those in need.
In His Name,
Cedar Plains Christian Church
