Get a Clue

Sharing another nugget of truth so we can eliminate the risk of a stale mind... think about it... 
The bible tells us in the book of James... ”If any man lack wisdom let him ask God for it, who will give it liberally, and won’t hold back”...  
This is awesome because if any generation has lacked in the smarts area, I think it’s now... And that is a problem... (I tell my wife that a basic requirement to go to Washington, DC is you must give up all common sense and wisdom...LOL...)
Our first response then when we are facing a problem, should be to ask God for wisdom, not money, not healing or power, but wisdom... This is the key to turning potential failure into success, because when you ask for wisdom and then listen to what the Holy Spirit says... You will gain the answer you need to turn things around for the good... 

I think that most of the time we try to figure everything out ourselves and get so caught up in the care of the problem that it chokes the Word of God right out of our heart. 
Jesus warns us about that happening in Mark 4:18-19... 

But the one that asks for and receives God’s wisdom will be in the right place at the right time, and will find the success that God has planned for you... 

In Him and not coming out, Karl

  2. kathryn brought up a good point, somehow tab, crystal and gerri are doing something to link their posts directly to facebook, which would broaden your readers.....anyway, great post, i almost never ask for wisdom in a situation but instead what i think i need so this is such sound advice!! when i do ask, i ususally ask for him to make the answer so clear that even someone as thick-headed as me can see the right answer!! blessings...
