James 1:5

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."

First there is a recognition that we are people that lack wisdom. Our part is to ask God for it. We tend to neglect this. we go ahead with our own plans and ideas. But we should ask God for it. Gods part is that he will give it liberally. There is no shortage of Gods wisdom for us in our walk with Him.

Next. We should not be ashamed. here James 1:5 it says abraideth not. God is not going to hold us responsible when we ask wisdom from Him.
Matthew Henrys Commentary puts it like this:
"If you should say you want a great deal of wisdom, a small portion will not serve your turn, the apostle affirms, he gives liberally; and lest you should be afraid of going to him unseasonably, or being put to shame for your folly, it is added, he upbraideth not. Ask when you will, and as often as you will, you will meet with no upbraidings."

We are a folly people. But God is not going to shame us.

How does God give us wisdom. There have been many times that I did not know how to do something or how to deal with a problem. I have turned to God and asked Him for wisdom on how to do this or how to solve a life problem. God has given the answer to my thoughts as I talk to Him, through a friend or the Bible. But there have also been times I have made wrong dicissions. Or frustration set in before I asked for wisdom. If we fall and make a wrong dicission God will not shame us but find a solution for us. After all, He is God.

Christian, encouragement for this day: it is to ask Him Our Lord for wisdom as we make our daily dicissions. God Bless.

Thought: Want to be wise? Have His wisdom.
