Gaining wisdom from God helps us make better decisions, have better relationships and become a better version of ourselves.

“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.” - James 1:5

Have you ever come across a situation where you didn’t know what to do or how to handle it? Popular how-to videos, blogs, and books all over the internet address this very issue. The truth is, most of us want to learn, we want to be better. But oftentimes, there are situations in our lives that we really struggle to work through and we wish there was someone who could tell us the best thing to do.

What can you do?

The Bible says that if we lack wisdom we should ask God and he will give it to us generously. This wisdom may come through prayer, through scripture, or even through another person. So if you are struggling to know what to do with a situation in your life right now, I want to encourage you to be more intentional with the time you spend with Jesus. Talk to him. Read your Bible.

God places people in our lives to help guide us along the way. Ask him to provide the right people to speak into your life. Go to a leader or someone you know with godly wisdom, who will seek the Lord with you and truly give you the best help they can.

But first, take it to Jesus.

Why not start today? Maybe it’s been a long time since you talked to God, but it’s never too late to pick up where you left off. Talk to him today and ask him to help you in the situation you are facing right now. Maybe it’s a financial issue, a problem with someone you love, or a difficult decision you have to make. Whatever your situation is, feel free to ask him to give you the wisdom you need to manage it. His way is always better. Align yourself with his will by asking him to guide your steps.

Always remember, that the best way to gain wisdom from God, is through asking him for it.
