October 18 Ask for Wisdom

For the Lord gives wisdom.

Proverbs 2:6

I believe God will provide the wisdom to understand any trial if we will ask Him. If we don’t ask, the Lord may allow the trial to continue until we demonstrate that we have learned to be dependent on Him through the trial.

If you lack wisdom, you’re commanded to ask God for it. Wisdom is never withheld from a believer who needs it and asks for it as he perseveres through a trial. Isn’t that a wonderful promise? Sometimes we don’t ask; we do everything but ask God. We ought to be on our knees crying out from our hearts for God to give us His direction.[1]
