If You Lack Wisdom...

Even though I had been brought up in church and heard scripture being spoken from the pulpit, I myself never read the Bible. When God allowed a painful loss to awaken my heart towards who He was and what He offered, the Bible became my biggest treasure. Many refer to the Bible as life’s instruction manual, and while it contains a great deal of instruction, it does not contain answers to all our questions. Actually, as I began to read and study the Word of God, I found I had more questions than answers.

What I am learning is although God’s Word contains instructions for godly living, it also contains insight into God’s character, power and authority. It shows me I can’t just read the words on the pages and expect to “get it”. It will only begin to make sense when I ask for spiritual understanding and discernment. Without it, they’re words on a page that seem foolish or irrelevant. “But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means.” 1 Corinthians 2:14 To understand His Word, we must seek His wisdom to allow what we read in His Word, to take shape in our lives, by transforming the way we think and behave. “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” James 1:5 I know I won’t find every answer to all of life’s questions, but because His Word shows me who He is -- trustworthy, perfect in character and truth -- I can trust Him with the questions that provide no answers on this side of Heaven. When He illuminates our minds with His wisdom, life is changed; our hearts are changed and we can trust Him to guide in the uncertainty, with the certainty of His Word.
