Heavy Decisions

"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him."—James 1:5

There are times in your life that a litany of decisions will come your way. These decisions will feel like a pack of savage beasts charging at you. And often it feels like it is hard to know what to do. Should you charge at them? Or should you run from them? But often the one thing you'll fail to do in these moments of decision is seek wisdom by asking for help. Maybe because you're programmed to figure issues out on your own? Possibly your drive, independence, or self-sufficiency triggers this need for refraining from asking. But unfortunately, this translates into physical effort and spiritual inaction. What God would rather you do is "ask Him." In this moment of perplexity, he wants you to turn to him first, not activity. And in the turning, you ask, for purposes of "gaining the wisdom you lack." And then as he supernaturally inspires, you act, knowing that God will "give generously."

DO THIS: Ask God first for the wisdom you need.

PRAYER: God, today I need wisdom for this circumstance _______________________. Give me wisdom to know what to do.
