Do you seek wisdom?

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

Wisdom is different from knowledge, because wisdom has been seasoned by experience. It accrues based on the trials and temptations you’ve endured and overcome, not from how many books you’ve read or the number of degrees you’ve earned. When we lack wisdom, we usually lack the ability to suffer through hard times while depending on God.

We’re told to ask God for wisdom if we don’t have it. But keep in mind that we may be asking him to allow us to endure a trial or suffer a hardship. Wisdom can certainly be gleaned in other ways, including as a supernatural gift bestowed immediately upon us by the Lord. But usually wisdom accumulates over time, layer upon layer, as we trust God to provide for our needs and to see us through challenges.

Pray: “Father, grant me the wisdom that comes from trusting you and from remaining close to you through both good and bad times.”
