Dear Friends,

One of the marvelous gifts God promises to those who ask is WISDOM. King Solomon, overwhelmed by the awesome responsibility  of governing God's holy people, asked for wisdom to guide them. The Almighty Jehovah was impressed.

"Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people, for who can rule this great people of yours?"

God said to Solomon, "Because you had this in mind, and did not ask for riches, wealth or honour, or the lives of those who hate you, nor have you even asked for long life, but you asked for yourself wisdom and knowledge that you may rule my people over whom I have made you king, wisdom and knowledge have been granted to you. And I will give you riches and wealth and honour, such as none of the kings before you have possessed nor those who will come after you."

(2 Chronicles 1:10-12)

I don't have a nation to govern, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the responsibilities that I do have. It was a special thing that God told King Solomon to ask him for anything, but the Lord is always ready to give wisdom to us whenever we ask for it.

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5)

What touched my heart about this verse is that God does not find fault with me for needing wisdom. We are often in positions (parents, teachers, bosses, etc.) where others expect us to have all the answers, but God never does. He is  always ready to impart his divine wisdom to whoever asks for it.
Thank you for visiting today. Now here is a piece of wisdom for you. I hope you will hold it close to your heart.

You are beautiful and you are loved.

Blessing hugs,
