If any of you lacks wisdom he should ask God, who gives generously to all with out finding fault. and it will be given to him.
I have been stuck on this verse for a little over a week.
We know that God gives wisdom for the obvious things....finances, decisions, job issues, parenting trials.
But what about when we need to wade through a mine field in our hearts? What about when circumstances crop up that feel like a sucker punch to the gut and then you are left to figure out your emotions and thoughts. How about those moments when another person’s humanity cuts you deep and you don’t know how to recover from it? What then?
It is in those moments where we desperately need the light of God’s word to illuminate our own hearts and attitudes. We need God’s wisdom to give us direction so we won’t be caught by our own sinfulness.
The world tell us “listen to your heart, it will never do you wrong”
Our hearts will always do us wrong....Doesn’t it say in the bible somewhere that the heart of man is bent on evil? Please, if I had listened to my heart for these past few days I would have done some pretty horrible things.
It is in those moments of confusion and pain and uncertainty when we HAVE to turn to the only source that will never do us wrong. That will ALWAYS have the right answers for our issues, even if they aren’t the answers that we want. They are always the answers that we NEED!
