Seeking Wisdom From God

By Tercius

If you are facing an important decision regarding a career, a relationship or illness, don't forget to seek advice from God.

James the disciple of Jesus wrote a short book to encourage Christians. One of the most famous verses was on the subject of praying to God for divine wisdom: "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind." - James 1:5-6 ESV

The Bible also contains numerous verses about wisdom. It was a popular subject in the Book of Proverbs: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction." - Proverbs 1:7

When we apply the wisdom of God to our circumstances, we may see some of our problems resolved through the grace of God.
