Pray for Wisdom

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” (James 1:5 KJV)

How would you like to be known around the office as a person who always makes sound decisions? How would it affect your performance and satisfaction on the job if you had access to great wisdom whenever you had a decision to make? The truth is, we all have access to such wisdom. It’s just that most of us don’t know it or utilize it. In the book of James, we’re told, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” An important key to being happy in your job is knowing you can call on God for wisdom. Pray for wisdom on the job. You’ll enjoy your work more and enjoy more success.

So today I want to ask you: Have you asked God to help you on the job?

    Great message Pastor Mac, I believe this so much, I am putting God in front of all my business decisions and I do ask for his merciful guidance. I realize how important it is to call on him. As I read your blog I heard that small voice saying; “Lean not on your own understanding. Gods ways are higher! Praise him. Thank you for sharing this word today.
