Request Wisdom

Description

God promises that if we recognize our need, and in our humility ask for His wisdom, we will receive it in abundance.

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

The key to God’s wisdom storehouse is petitionary prayer. Those too proud to ask won’t get the rich supply. To ask is to acknowledge one’s need. Pride keeps us from asking. “Don’t tell me how to drive!” I snapped at Jo Beth one day as we tried to take the shortest route and make a tight schedule. Later, while preparing to preach, I came face to face with my pride. Men sometimes have a hard time asking—and receiving—directions. But God promises that if we recognize our need, and from that humility ask for His wisdom, we will receive it in abundance.
