If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. James 1:5
Sometimes studying the Bible can be confusing.
Sometimes LIFE can be confusing… and really really hard. Things happen that we just can’t understand.
Sometimes the pain and suffering can blur our vision.
Sometimes it feels like we are working so hard and doing all the right things, but nothing seems to be happening for us.
Sometimes we are at a fork in the road and we just don’t know which way to go or how to even move forward.
Sometimes we tend to be so critical of ourselves that it is hard to see ourselves as God sees us.
Sometimes we know a lot of things, but still don’t understand.
While God doesn't reveal everything to us, He doesn’t leave us stuck in a pit of confusion either. God promises to give us the wisdom we need if we ask Him for it and believe He will give it to us.
And not only does He give us a little wisdom, He gives it to us generously and without reproach, meaning He isn’t critical or hard on us because we ask Him to help us understand things. Actually, the opposite is true, He loves when we ask Him for things. He has so much He is wanting to show us and give us…but He wants us to be part of the process. He wants us to ask Him.
When you find yourself confused or unsure – which you will – remember that you can always ask God for wisdom!
