Searching for Wisdom
Last week we started talking about decisions, and how we make them. We all have decisions to make. Will we go this way or that way, will our faith grow or stay the same. Decisions are the markers in life that cause us to continue to move. When you don’t make a decisions when life calls you to make a decision, well you just stall out and you don’t move. All the while life is still moving around you. So how do you make decisions and how do you make the right decisions in life. For that you need a well to pull wisdom from. When you have a well to pull from, you have a place of wisdom to help guide you in the decision making process. When life calls us to make a decision, we can sometimes make a decision too fast and then wish we decide something else. Have you ever done that? Made a decision so fast that you really did not even take time to think about it. Then when you have to live with the choices that you made you wish you chose something else. We have all done that but did we learn from it? See when we learn from our bad decisions we realize that we need wisdom on our side. Wisdom will never fail you, it is the place we should all make our decisions from. So do you have a well of wisdom? Do you have a place you can go to so that your decisions will be good ones? In the Bible there are many verses about wisdom. God really likes us to be wise in all that we do. He longs for us to be the best decision makers around. He really loves it when we use His wisdom to help us make decisions. He likes it so much He gives wisdom away for free! Yes Free! Think about it if I sent out a text to everyone in XGT and stated in the text that the first one to make it to the church would win a free I Pad. How fast would you try to get to the church? An I Pad is cool and great, but it is not as powerful as wisdom. God gives wisdom away for free. Check out this verse James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. That is awesome it is free, and when you think that it is not free to you because of the decisions that you have made in the past, God covers that and says it will be given generously to all without find fault. God will give wisdom to everyone, no judging involved. So do you have a well? Do you cry out for wisdom to make decisions? Make it a point to believe in James 1:5 and seek out God wisdom for decisions.
