I was reading to my daughter tonight from her God's Little Princess Bible. The topic was Wisdom.
We do not read from this book every night. In fact we have not read from this Bible for sometime now. I think that I needed to read it tonight.
I have been trying to make some decisions lately. I have been praying about these decisions. But one thing I have not been specifically praying for is Wisdom.
Her book told the story of Solomon. God came to him and said, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you." Solomon could have asked God for anything. Solomon's response to God was to, "give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong."
Solomon asked God for Wisdom and the scripture says, "The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this."
God wants to provide us with wisdom. He wants to lead us to make the right decisions. All we have to do is ask. It seems that sometimes I have a laundry list of prayer to God. I realize that if I would just ask for wisdom, it would take care of a lot of the details.
