If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God—who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly—and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith without doubting. For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind.
James 1:5-6 CSB
Where will you find wisdom today? Will you seek it from God or from the world? As a thoughtful person living in a society that is filled with temptations and distractions, you know the world’s brand of “wisdom” is everywhere—and it is dangerous. You live in a world where it’s all too easy to stray far from the ultimate source of wisdom: God and His holy Word.
When you commit yourself to getting to know God more through His Word and following His ways—you will become wise…in time. God will bring the growth as you seek His heart. As a way of understanding God and His plan for your life, study His Word and learn how to live. When you do, you will accumulate a storehouse of wisdom that will enrich your life and the lives of your family members, your friends, and the world around you.
AS WISDOM GROWS, SO WILL YOUR CALLING AND HIS ENABLING
Those whom God calls to a specific task, He always enables. The Lord knows when we have been faithful, and He gives us more—and His “more” will always stretch us. We would probably find it easier to continue being faithful right where we already are than go to the next level in our walk with God, but then we would stop growing. So God puts us in places of greater service than we have ever had before.
But along with every challenging call comes God’s perfect enabling. He is prepared to meet every need we will face as we step out in obedience and faith. He will grant us the strength we need to match every demand. He will bestow the wisdom we need to navigate every decision.
It is an awesome experience to realize that Almighty God is personally equipping you to serve Him. If God is calling you to a new assignment, be encouraged—you are about to experience His empowerment like never before.
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.
