Our Devotional For Tomorrow
TOPIC: Wisdom for Life
TEXT: JAMES 1:5-6 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to Him. But let him ask in Faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”
Wisdom is the right application of knowledge. A person who is full of knowledge cannot be considered to be wise if the knowledge he has is not properly applied. We saw in our previous devotion how Jesus grew in wisdom (Luke 2:52). Jesus instructed His disciples and said “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves” Matthew 10:16. Jesus understood the necessity of wisdom in souls winning that is why he dished out such instruction to His followers.
How do we get wisdom? James 1:5-6 has stated it clearly that wisdom can only be gotten by asking God and asking in Faith. Solomon asked for wisdom, knowledge and understanding to enable him lead his people (1 Chronicles 1:7-12). Wisdom is power without which you can hardly operate successfully in Kingdom business. Mind you, a lot of people have mistaken craftiness for wisdom. Here in this meditation, we are talking about wisdom from above. If you read James 3:13-17, it tells us two kinds of wisdom: the wisdom from earth below and wisdom from above. When you see yourself exhibiting the characteristics of earthly wisdom (bitterness, envy, and self-seeking) you know it is not from God. Bible says it earthly, sensual, and devilish. But wisdom that is from above is pure, peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy (James 3:17).
Wisdom is very essential because it helps one to overcome the obstacles of life. Therefore seek for wisdom and it will be given to you in God’s generosity as long as you ask in faith without doubt.
ACTION PRAYER: God of wisdom and power, we seek the wisdom that comes from above to enable us complete the race you have set before us. Give wisdom to the Board, Management and the entire staff of Vision Africa to perfectly pilot the affairs of this great organization through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
