How many times a day do I run into the need to decide? How many times do I deliberate on what to do? How many times do I ask God?
God is so good to not only give us what we need but to put us in places where we need it! I've lived that truth this week.
I'm plugging along with memorizing James, and (GASP!)I have to say that I'm actually enjoying it. Here's the passage that I've been working on:
"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. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do." James 1:5-8
All week I've been running into walls and scratching my head:
- Is this candidate "the one" for our church?
- Am I called to get involved in this volunteer opportunity?
- How in the world can I make the demands of this schedule work?
These are some of the places that I'm asking for wisdom.
Do you have some places you need wisdom too? Can we pray together? I'm asking for God to give me wisdom in these areas and countless others. If you'll leave your request, I'll ask with you. Will you do the same for me? Let's ask, seek and knock together!
