“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.”
The world we live in grows more and more hostile toward the things of God. Let us ask for wisdom. Let us ask for resolve to stand strong and not compromise and not be blown about by the reasoning of the world. To stand on anything/anyone other than Christ is to stand on shifting stand. I know I am prone to wander, prone to be swayed, prone to give in to peer pressure and fear of man, yet the verse above talks about faith. Ask for wisdom in faith that God will give it. So in faith I say that God will make me wise. In faith I say that on His solid foundation, His solid rock I will stand. In faith I say that I welcome persecution, I welcome misunderstanding, I welcome the assumptions of others when I make decisions or stand for things based on reasoning and principles they do not understand.
Yes, the world and its values are walking further and further away from God and I can feel it. I see it around me. I feel the tug to give in and doubt and compromise in the flesh part of my heart. So in faith, I call out “Lord, I lack wisdom! I need Your wisdom. I need Your mind. I need Your heart.” And in faith, I know He will answer me.
“…what God says to us will be more useful than what anyone else in the universe has to say. Not to sit at His feet and soak our minds in His wisdom is sheer craziness if not suicidal.”
“Sheer craziness…” I love that. Lord, help me live my convictions!!
“It’s been a wild ride thus far my love! God is deserving for us to not take any looks back and have any regrets or fears. He’s calling us to see each day as an opportunity for us to receive and share His extravagant love. There is so much time, but very little at the same time. His Gospel call is urgent and we must answer with faith and obedience. I am so happy I get to do THIS life with you.”
Amen!! Happy 3 years, KMY!! They’ve been amazing <333
