Joseph Prince Daily Devotional The Spirit of Wisdom : We have been asked to remember that our God is a good God. One of the things we can ask of him is wisdom. In James 1:5-7 the bible says “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraided not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
God has advised us to ask for wisdom. Some of us feel like we are already wise but the word ASK is constant and imperative, God didn’t say if you lack wisdom its up to you to decided whether you want to ask or not.
We are to always and every time advised to pray for wisdom. While we also pray for wisdom we should remain focused it should not become a recitation or just a repetition, it should come from your heart, we should understand that God has a different kinds of wisdom for each situation, this wisdom isn’t given as a result of our qualifications or level in our companies or how wealthy we are, wisdom doesn’t come by experience, or accumulation of knowledge; pharaoh had the knowledge of the dream but Joseph had the wisdom to interpret the dream.
When you ask God for wisdom, God makes you see that there are myriads of information out there; a lot of it, but God will make you see exactly what you need to see. It doesn’t matter if everyone around you is older or more experienced, experience is not wisdom, the lord alone gives wisdom. God constantly gives wisdom without finding faults in us, this is the God we should always have in our minds
