Inspirational Thought of the Day:
God’s wisdom is never-ending and far surpasses basic knowledge.
Scripture of the Day:
“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.”
A little late posting on thankfulness today. Busy day ending with a mixup at the hotel I was to stay at tonight. Already feeling drained, this was a moment I could have given into “the grumpies”.
But sitting in the lobby wondering where I was going to go when all of the area hotels were full became a moment of worship when I began to contemplate Joseph and Mary and the utter fatigue and stress they must have been feeling.
I prayed and asked God what I should do. I asked for His favor. He led me to call a couple of different hotel chains. It took a couple of calls and the last room in one hotel was mine. Grateful. God provides always. It might look a little different than we were anticipating, but His provision is always enough.
My heart is full of thankfulness that God is always ready to give us wisdom when we ask. I remember buying a set of encyclopedias for my oldest child and being told by the salesman that as a bonus I could have any three questions researched and answered. Wow. This was amazing to me. (I am a nerd, after all). I savored the note that promised knowledge at my fingertips when I would just ask…
I never asked. I wanted to save up my three questions (kind of like three wishes, lol), for something really important. To understand me, you would have to know that I absolutely love to learn and search for answers. This thirst for learning was behind my desire to home educate, too.
As God’s children, He promises to give us wisdom whenever we need it – generously and without finding fault. God’s wisdom is neverending and far surpasses basic knowledge. Unlike the promise of wisdom from the encyclopedia salesman, there is no limit, but we have an important role – we have to ask.
Lord, thank You for granting wisdom to us and opening our eyes so we could see our foolish ways. You are sovereign and all-knowing, our Abba Father who delights to teach His children. Help us to hunger after You and Your instruction.
