Wise Decisions

James 1 5

Verse of the Day:  James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

God is the giver all good things including wisdom. We need God’s spiritual wisdom in our everyday lives to navigate this world. When you have a decision to make take it to the Lord in prayer. God is all-knowing, He knows your past, your present and your future. Bring your concerns to Him with sincerity and humility. Ask the Lord for guidance and wisdom to make good and right decisions. He promises that if you come to Him by faith asking for wisdom it will be given to you.

Read During Prayer

2 Timothy 3 16

Verse of the Day: 2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness

Reading the Bible as part of your prayer can lead to enlightenment.  The Book of Psalms is a great place to start reading scriptures that turn into prayers. They’re full of wonderful praise and thanksgiving to God. Before you begin to read the Bible ask God to open your eyes and make clear what He is trying to show you. If you’re looking for a specific topic you want to address in prayer you can use a Bible concordance or look up verses on the internet. Once you find the Bible verse you want to focus on, read it, meditate on it, think about what it really means to you, then pray about it. God speaks to you in many ways including His written Word. He may open your eyes to something new when a passage you’ve read before suddenly becomes clear and impacts you like never before. Remember, when we pray, we talk to God; when we read the Bible, God speaks to us.
