Wisdom and Discernment

Give your servant, therefore, an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?

1 Kings 3: 9

What do we often ask God during our prayer time? Fame? Success? Money? Although it is not bad to request for these things, it is unusual yet amazing for someone to pray for wisdom and discernment just like King Solomon. Instead of asking for long life and riches, he prayed for wisdom.

Do we often consult God before we decide to make a move? Are we asking for His guidance to lead our day to day activities? The problem with people is that we complain before we listen. We grumble even for petty challenges and we blame God for a difficult situation. If we truly believe in His sovereignty and ask wisdom before we take several steps forward, life is sweeter.

In application, God is full of wisdom and He is generous to give wisdom to those who are asking for it. If we are uncertain of what to do or where to go, ask God to lead the way. The discernment that comes from God will always result in a better judgment. When in doubt, call unto Him and He will answer. His landline is open 24/7 and there are no technical difficulties. Why not call Him now?
