“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” – James 1:5
None of us are naturally wise people. Wisdom is not an innate talent or something that comes easily to anyone. Wisdom must be sought after and it must be sought after from the proper source. God promises to bestow it on all who would ask Him, but we must remember that the experience of growing in His wisdom isn’t so much like flipping a light switch, where at one point we are foolish and then made instantly wise through the speaking of a prayer. It’s more like being trained at a gym: the Lord will make us wise, but we must continually show up, day after day. Consequently, though we may seek wisdom for one area of our lives and receive it, we must continue to seek it as we go on.
Growth in wisdom is a lifelong dedication, and thinking we’ve arrived is nothing more than an indication that we haven’t learned anything at all.
