How To Make Right Decisions! (continued)

James 1:5-11

We looked at the problem, the prescription, now we look at the promise.

The Promise: God will give it!

If any man lack wisdom, he should ask God. Wisdom is applying the promise of God’s word to your problems and allowing God to accomplish what He wants in your life through your trial.

Look how God says He’ll give wisdom: God gives continually. He doesn’t run out of energy. He never wears out. God gives generously. His resources are unlimited. He has enough resources for everybody. God gives without insulting you. God gives cheerfully. He loves to give. It’s His nature to give. You never need to feel embarrassed. There should never be any hesitation. God does not resent your asking for wisdom. God’s wisdom is found in God’s word. I’ve got to get into His book. I get on my knees and pray for God to direct our lives Proverb 3:5-6. I have to ask God to give me wisdom to apply his word in whatever situation we are in. I need to read, study, memorize, meditate, on this book. God’s wisdom is found in God’s word.
