There’s a certain humility involved when you ask for wisdom because it requires that you admit that you don’t know everything that there is to know. Perhaps that’s what impressed God so much about Solomon when he became a king as such a tender, young age. Solomon not only knew that he didn’t know a lot, but he also had the humility to admit his ignorance to the Lord. When we, in a similar way, humbly recognize the lack of wisdom in our lives, James promises that God will graciously and generously endow us with what we need. But the ironic part of the whole thing is that we need the wisdom to be humble in order to ask God for more wisdom. Take a moment today to admit your areas of ignorance to the Lord, and humbly ask Him for His wisdom. Then cling to the promise that God will generously answer your prayer.
