To lack wisdom and be a believer in Christ is a sad state, and completely avoidable. Our God is the sole source of true wisdom. He makes it readily available to His people by being completely accessible to them.
“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Psalms 90:12). “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Psalms 111:10a). “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!” (Romans 11:33). “But we preach Christ crucified . . . but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God” (I Corinthians 1:23–24). “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Colossians 3:16). “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).
GOLDEN THOUGHT: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God.
