Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

A Desire for Wisdom

James 1:5 " If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given him."

If you believe that you don't need divine wisdom as you live in a sinful world, you're really deceived. When Jesus taught us to pray, he said "Do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from the evil one." Matthew 6:13 That is a prayer for spiritual discernment or spiritual wisdom.

This should be our prayer ~~

"Dear Lord, please by Your Spirit give me the ability to discern when I am being led into something that is evil. Please give me the wisdom, insight, and scriptural sensitivity to allow me not to fall int the traps of the world, the flesh, or the devil. Amen."

Taken from John MacArthur's book "Teach me to Pray"

  1. Wisdom, and humility to go along with it. :)

  2. I love that wisdom is a heart thing.. the smartest among us can be so unwise.. and yet the simplest can be so wise. I think that it is why the scriptures tell us to guard our hearts. And a big amen to humility.. also an issue of the heart :)
