“Then King Rehoboam consulted the elders who had served his father Solomon during his lifetime. “How would you advise me to answer these people?” he asked…but Rehoboam rejected the advice the elders gave him and consulted the young men who had grown up with him and were serving him.”
1 Kings 12:6,8
What good is it for us to ask for wisdom then not use it? That’s what we sometimes do: we ask God for His wisdom, how He would direct us and what He says is the best thing to do, but don’t use that wisdom. We think that God’s way is wrong when it doesn’t align with what we want Him to tell us. We even consult with our friends and family more than we consult God. However, we must remember that God is Almighty and He knows ALL things, and we must trust Him in all things. We must believe that God knows what’s best for us, and will give us the guidance that we need to move forward in the direction that will lead to His will.
Although we may feel more comfort in asking guidance from those who are on the same level as we are, they can’t help us beyond a certain point because they, too, have limited understanding and perspective. We must understand that God will use people to get us what we need when we need it, so we must have an open and receptive heart to the insight that God gives us about our current circumstance or a future one. Whatever the wisdom, trust God will have the best answer for you. I pray that God helps us to trust His wisdom and walk in faith instead of fear.
God will always take care of you ♥
God bless you, and know that I am praying with you! ♥
