This month, I’m participating in a Five Minute Friday challenge called “31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes,” responding to a one-word prompt for five minutes each day in October. Click here to join in!
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” James 1:5-6
God is waiting to give us wisdom if only we will ask. I also believe we would have more peace, courage, strength, and joy if we took the time to ask the Lord to give it to us. The Spirit inside us is ready to give guidance and work through us powerfully if we will tune in to what He’s trying to say. He will open our eyes to the people in need around us if we ask Him to. He will show us opportunities to make an impact for the kingdom wherever we go.
Let prayer be your first response to every life situation, and I promise you will see a change. God is faithful to provide for His children, and He wants to hear our concerns. Ask Him for help first the next time you’re faced with a challenge, then let me know how it changed your perspective or what God did in response. I look forward to hearing your story!
