"For I will give you words and wisdom ..."
(Luke 21:15 NIV)
God doesn't issue rules and regulations for every moment; instead, He provides guidelines and principles and allows us to make decisions.
That's because He's glorified when we choose to consult, trust and obey Him. James writes, 'If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all. ' (James 1:5 NIV).
Listen, you haven't really begun to live until you've learned to tap into God's wisdom. And when you do, you will be amazed how clearly things come into focus. With God's wisdom, comes a remarkable absence of fear. We're no longer intimidated by circumstances or the opinions of those around us.
We can lose a job or get promoted, and neither will derail us. We can get into an unexpected valley or soar to the pinnacle of success, and cope equally well with both. That's because the wisdom of God gives us balance, insight and stability.
None of these is a natural trait; each is a by-product of the wisdom that comes from God. We don't get them simply because we are Christians. No, we get them because we ask for them. God's wisdom provides us with the sixth sense needed in confusing situations, and the strength to press on confidently in spite of unanswered questions.
Do you need wisdom today?
Spend time with the One who said, 'I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to. contradict' (Luke 21:15 NIV). It works like this: when you make Jesus Lord of your life, you're given access to the wisdom of God. With the Son of God, comes the wisdom of God. It's all part of the package.
Today God is inviting us to pursue wisdom. We begin this pursuit by entering a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Once that relationship is established, it's a journey that calls you to passionately pursue wisdom, to embrace an accurate moral code and to build a life plan consistent with God's plan.
