‘What were you thinking??!!’ Have you ever said that to someone or maybe someone said that to you after a less than favorable outcome? Whether we rushed into something or reacted without thinking things through, we have probably all found ourselves in this situation at least once.
The excuse could be that we just didn’t know. Maybe being young and inexperienced was part of it. Or maybe we just didn’t take the time to get advice and instead jumped head first into it. There is a way to steer clear of faulty decisions and maneuver our way through many difficult situations. PRAY! Ask God for wisdom to know how to make the right choices. Lean into Him and wait for His direction until you have peace in your decision.
One of the promises of God that I love and cherish most is that He promises to respond to our prayer for wisdom. In fact, He even said He would give us a generous portion of wisdom when we ask Him. How valuable is THAT in this crazy world??!!
James 1:5 (NLT) promises us, “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” God has given us the gift of Wisdom.
