“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking” James 1:5 (NLT)
The Word of God is a treasure of infinite value given to us by our gracious heavenly Father, but many Christians today live as if they’re trapped in poverty. Imagine a person with great worldly wealth living on the streets, begging for handouts, even though they have a fortune in the bank. Likewise, the children of God should not struggle hopelessly through daily life when we have access to the wisdom and direction of our Almighty God.
As God’s children, we must learn to apply Scripture to every area of life and every circumstance we face for our good and for His glory. If we aren’t allowing God’s Word to direct our decision-making and relationships, we will quench the work of the Holy Spirit to sanctify us and bring us into a deeper relationship with our heavenly Father. God gave us His Word to use, not just adore. If we’re going to live for Christ and delight in our Lord, we have to let His Word refine us and disciple us.
In what area of your life do you need God’s wisdom? Soak it up from the pages of His Word, and you’ll experience the power and grace of the great I am as He transforms you “into His image with ever-increasing glory” (2 Corinthians 3:18).
