UCB Word For Today 22 August 2023 Tuesday Daily Devotional Message by United Christian Broadcasters

TOPIC: Pray for Wisdom (4)

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 NKJV

UCB Word For Today 22nd August 2023 MESSAGE

Here is a time-tested and proven formula for obtaining wisdom:

1) Acknowledge that you need it. Benjamin Franklin correctly said, ‘The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of your own ignorance.’

2) Go to the right source. ‘The Lord gives wisdom’ (Proverbs 2:6 NKJV). He alone can give you true wisdom, because He alone has true wisdom. Indeed, His wisdom makes ours look like foolishness. Paul says, ‘The foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom’ (1 Corinthians 1:25 NIV). Think about that. If God were capable of a stupid thought, which He is not, it would still be wiser than the wisest thought we could ever conceive.

3) Ask for it. God doesn’t hoard his wisdom; He is ready to give it away. Solomon says: ‘If you call out for insight…cry aloud for understanding…look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding’ (Proverbs 2:3-6 NIV).

James writes: ‘If any of you need wisdom, you should ask God, and it will be given to you. God is generous and won’t correct you for asking. But when you ask for something, you must have faith and not doubt. Anyone who doubts is like an ocean wave tossed around in a storm. If you are that kind of person, you can’t make up your mind, and you surely can’t be trusted. So don’t expect the Lord to give you anything at all’ (James 1:5-8 CEV). Today, pray for wisdom.
