Thought For the Day by Al Boulden

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.”

The Lord desires that His people be wise….wise in His eyes and not necessarily in the eyes of the world.  Receiving Christ as Savior unlocks the door to real wisdom.  We still have power to follow worldly ways, but the Holy Spirit makes it more and more clear that such choices are foolish.  It is wise to start each day with prayer, seeking God’s wisdom.  Be prepared with God’s response when that guy cuts in front of you on the toll-way or your spouse yells at you for no good reason.  Pray for God’s response in short term instances, but also for more significant decisions.  The Lord will lead.  The question is whether or not we will follow.

Lord, thank You for empowering us to make wise decisions.  Keep us cognizant of foolish ways.  Help us walk in the Spirit, guided with courageous wisdom.

Seek God’s wisdom today.
