The Wisest Request

OCTOBER 18

So elusive Wisdom is when it shouldn’t be. So why is it that I cannot seem to operate in the confines of it? I will never have what I never ask for. So busy wanting the riches, spoils and comforts of this world, wisdom is far down the list of things I ask God for. Wisdom is a foreign concept to me, as well, especially when the wisdom of this world is foolishness in the eyes of The Lord. And not knowing what Godly Wisdom looks like, I can easily be fooled into believing my choices are wise when that couldn’t be further from how God views my decision making process and all that results from my poor choices.

I don’t know how to properly leverage Godly Wisdom so God most often probably won’t grant me access to something I’m probably going to mishandle badly. But it’s an easy fix, really when it gets down to it because the greatest obstacles to God’s Wisdom is human pride. So at the moment I put aside everything corruptible that my heart desires for the sake of having the one thing I truly need in all my decision making processes – God’s Wisdom – it suddenly invades my mind and my soul.

God grants His Wisdom to the heart that finally embraces the truth that it needs God to be apart of every aspect, every thought and every decision being made. In this moment, I am asking not so much to be wise… I’m just asking God to show me where to go, what to say, and what to do next. And that is where God’s Wisdom will always be found. The Truth is… I want God to be apart of everything and when I find myself at this place, Wisdom reminds me that here – with The Lord – there can be no wrong turns to make because God knows exactly where He’s going. And my soul rests and my mind rejoices, knowing that suddenly… there no longer is any more pressure to figure out what needs to be done next! For my heart has already made the wisest request of them all. Peace, SAG

Today’s Scripture:

2 Chronicles 1:7-12

7 In that night God appeared to Solomon, and said to him, “Ask what I shall give you.”

8 And Solomon said to God, “You have shown great and steadfast love to David my father, and have made me king in his place.

9 O LORD God, let your word to David my father be now fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth.

10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can govern this people of yours, which is so great?”

11 God answered Solomon, “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked for long life, but have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may govern my people over whom I have made you king,

12 wisdom and knowledge are granted to you. I will also give you riches, possessions, and honor, such as none of the kings had who were before you, and none after you shall have the like.”
