Do you struggle with making the right decision? Do you need help to decide whether to take that job, to move or to stay? We all have decisions, big and small that we need some guidance with. And the good news is that God wants to give it to you. It pleased God when Solomon asked for wisdom (1 Kings 3:7-14), it pleases God when we ask Him for wisdom and it is in His nature to give. He is a giving God.
The Bible says in James 1:5, "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." (NIV)
This verse says three things about how God gives wisdom. He does so:
Continually. "Ask God who gives ..." In Greek this is in the continuous tense. He keeps on giving. He doesn't run out of energy. He never wears out.
Generously. God's resources are unlimited. He has enough resources for everyone. He's got plenty of wisdom to go around.
Cheerfully. James says God gives "without finding fault." God loves to give. It's in his nature to give! Don't get embarrassed to ask. He wants to give you wisdom!

Where do you need help and wisdom? God has wisdom to offer. But remember what James says. If you want wisdom from God, you've got to ask!
