“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 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. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”
James 1:2-8 NKJV
We all must do what is good and right for our lives, but in the doing, remember that God can and will be your guide. The scripture that chose me today makes it clear that you will have a choice to make. You can allow the things that happen to you to perfect you or allow them to deflect you from your purpose.
Paul reminds us that if you lack wisdom, Ask God .. remember what happened when Solomon asked for wisdom, God made him the smartest person alive and with that came everything he could have hoped or dreamed of.
“Now give me wisdom and knowledge so that I can lead these people in the right way. No one could rule this great nation without your help.” God said to Solomon, “You have the right attitude. You did not ask for long life and riches for yourself. You did not ask for the death of your enemies. You asked for wisdom and knowledge so that you can make the right decisions. So I will give you wisdom and knowledge, but I will also give you wealth, riches, and honor. No king who lived before you has ever had so much wealth and honor, and no king in the future will have as much wealth and honor.””
2 Chronicles 1:10-12 ERV
Now imagine this, you have a decision to make and you go to God for help, you ask him to guide you, you ask him to be the light on your path and you ask him to direct your path?
This is what Jesus said about it; (it’s in red)
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Matthew 6:33 KJV
Take your concern to God and he will help you make the right decision, the decision that lines up with your purpose and his will.
