If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 NKJV.
Wisdom in this verse does not refer to earthly wisdom because let’s face it, we all believe we are wise in some way, shape or form right? However, what I have found is that we have educated ourselves out of the wisdom of God and that is why James said,”if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God”. He does not say to go to school or ask a professor but to ask God. God’s wisdom is not something you can learn at an Ivy League college or a community college, it is something God himself has to impart in you. The greatest thing about this is all you have to do is ask God for his wisdom.
Why do you need Gods wisdom? Simple, because the things of this world that seem wise are not so with God. In the book of 1 Corinthians chapter 1 verse 27, it says that God chose the foolish things of this world to shame the wise (earthly wisdom). God’s wisdom will allow you to reason differently and see things how God wants you to see them. It was through this wisdom that allowed me to see that most of the things we do in this world are contrary to God’s principles and hence we face difficulties. Once we receive spiritual wisdom and apply it to our everyday lives then, true wisdom can be achieved. With that being said, do you lack Godly wisdom? if so, ask him. These are Julien’s thought and what’s on his mind.
