“I think God gives us the wisdom to make choices…”
I disagree with that statement. I think God gives us the capacity for obtaining wisdom, but we aren’t born with godly wisdom.
“Get wisdom! Get understanding!” Proverbs 4:5
“Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:3-5
Did you pay attention to the language? “If you CRY OUT”…this is the language of urgency and pleading!
How many of us are crying out for wisdom before we make decisions? How many of us are searching for understanding, for the “knowledge of God” like we would search for gold?
As a mother with little ones, are we crying out for wisdom? As parents making decisions about our children’s lives, are we pursuing discretion with everything in us?
Or are we letting the world dictate our choices without a second thought?
Do we even believe that God has an answer for every detail of our lives?
Do you think the world would look different if every Christian everywhere approached life this way?
