Tuesday, May 4, 2021

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
— James 1:5

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

So often we act out of ignorance and face grave consequences for our actions. God longs to grant us spiritual wisdom, that not only helps us make wise choices, but also gives us the ability to act and react with grace and wisdom. Before we face each day, before we face challenging situations, before we make challenging decisions, let's seek God's face and ask for his gift of wisdom.

My Prayer...

Holy Father, I need your wisdom to help me make the right decisions in the challenges and situations that will confront me today. Please pour your wisdom into my heart and head so that my actions, words, and choices will not only be pleasing to you, but a blessing to those around me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
