Thank you for your gift of Wisdom

Thank you that you provide wisdom for us through your word.  

In reading about Wisdom my response has always been - that can never be me.  But my heart has been opening up 
to the truth that God makes his wisdom available to all of us. I see in James 1:5 that it is simply to ask.

 James 1:5. 
If any of you lacks wisdom,

 let him ask God, 

who gives generously 

to all 

without reproach,

and it will be given him.

I am seeing anew that wisdom is  found by us spending time in the Word of God. The LORD Jesus Christ has not hidden himself from us. 

He wants us to know him - to seek out his heart.   And as we do spend time with him in His Word, and seek to walk in the truths he gives us, he comes alongside and enables us.

He implants His wisdom in our hearts. As we seek him our desire  for him Him grows.  We find renewal of  our minds, and a desire  to walk in His ways.   

He gives us divine help when we are struggling and he forgives us when we fail and sin.  We can run to him in repentance for our sin and He gives us His forgiveness and love. 

Thank you LORD for your bountiful gift of wisdom.
