So many, many decisions.
Pre-K or daycare?
Public, private or home school?
Christian university, public university or community college?
And those are just the education questions! My heart is afraid to step out, make a decision, scared I’ll mess it up.
Some days, when my child asks me a question, I have been known to say, “I just don’t know. Ask me later.” I feel like I lack the wisdom to know the right answer. I feel discouraged; defeated even. Afraid to make the wrong choice, postponing seems the safest.
Recently, I came across the story of Solomon asking God for wisdom. While I know this was a special circumstance between Solomon and God, I also remember James 1: 5 tells me, “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.” (NIV)
So, I’ve written 1 Kings 3:12 into my prayer journal asking God with confidence for wisdom like Solomon. God promised him, “I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be.”
You’ve got questions; you need answers.
God’s the one to deliver.
Let’s choose today to trust God, believing He wants to and will give us the wisdom we need for the situations we are in. We can trust Him.
