James 1:5

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reporach, and it will be given him.”

Where do I go for wisdom? Where is the first place I go? What is my default? Is it Google? Social Media? YouTube? My favorite internet sites? My friends?

God wants us to come to Him first. He is generous with His help. This is true. He does not withhold help from those He loves. His help and wisdom are perfect and His timing spot on.

“Without reproach” means He will not make fun of us when we ask. He will not point out our weaknesses or stupidity. He will not chide or taunt us for not knowing something. He loves us perfectly. Cr. 1Cor. 13:4-8a

“…it will be given him.” He is the Giver. Everything is a gift from God. We know nothing and have nothing that has not been a gift from God. Cr. Eph. 2:8-9

Prayer: Father, forgive me for trying other places. I want you to be my default “go to” in the months and years to come. Help me develop the habit of coming to You first. Help me to trust You more than any of these other sources. Help me to be steadfast in my faith and my love for You alone. Thank you for inviting me into Your Presence with outstretched arms through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen
