RENEWAL Devotional: A Dose of Wisdom
Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for RENEWAL at Brookhaven Hospital
Scripture Verse for Today: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God . . . and it shall be given him. —James 1:5
This scripture is available for anyone who asks. It is not just for those in the faith. There is, for example, the privilege of having divine wisdom and guidance continually. We sure do need wisdom today more than ever before.
When we need wisdom, we first need to humble ourselves before the Lord. We must follow our pride when we need help in areas that we have no idea how to resolve within our own strength. The harder it is for us to ask for help can be a real indicator of how much we actually need help in that particular area of our life.
When we humble ourselves, we honor God. We are powerless without Him when we do not have his daily guidance.
Reading the book of Proverbs every day, gives us a clear path and direction on how to deal with situations in our daily lives. It was written for us to give us daily wisdom.
