How many decisions do you have to make every day? What do you allow to guide you in making those decisions?
From the moment you wake up to the end of the day you might make around the 612 decisions a day. This equals to 4,900 decisions in a week and 254,800 in a year.
That is a lot of decisions for sure! Whew, how do we go about making those decisions? For many of them we don’t really need a ton of wisdom to make the decision, like what to eat for breakfast, do you or do you not brush your teeth before you leave the house, what you will wear for the day. I mean some of these decisions just happen, because they are the same decisions that we make everyday.
But there are those decisions that come to you at times, where you need wisdom on your side! You will need to put on your thinking cap and be ready to make the decision with all the right answers.
Have you ever had one of those decisions come your way? The one that you need to think about, the one that tempts you, the one that puts peer pressure on you.
You know the decisions that I am talking about they might not come your way everyday, but when they come, you need wisdom on your side. To have wisdom on your side you need to have a history using wisdom and having conversations with wisdom.
The Bible has a lot to say about wisdom. The book of Proverbs is the book of wisdom in the Bible. But I think of the whole book as a conversation with God and that conversation leads me to be wise in the decisions that I have to make.
The Bible says this about wisdom: James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. Sign me up I lack wisdom every day for sure! God is so awesome, and so cool. He will give wisdom to anyone who ask and he will not try to find reasons to not give you wisdom he just gives it out. I mean God knows that if we have wisdom on our side then we will choose Him and will will go the way He longs for us to go. Wisdom can only steer us to make decisions that God will find pleasing. Making decisions that make God pleased is the key to a wonderful and worth living. So you don’t need any experience, you don’t need to be the best of the best you just have to ask the best of the betsy and God will grant you wisdom!
