My friend Edgar DeJesus said in a sermon, “Wisdom is the application of knowledge.” That struck something within me, so I wrote it down. Years ago, before I started writing these devotionals, I was reading the book of James and ran across the verse that says, if you lack wisdom, just ask for it. So I prayed that prayer, several times, I still pray that prayer. Now years later, I can see that He has answered it! I couldn’t write these if He hadn’t. God has taken my study to a different level and shows me His word coming to life every day. If you’re not studying the Bible, how do you expect God to teach you to apply the knowledge you’re not getting? On the other hand, why study and never put it into practice? It’s like going to college to become a doctor, but never working in that field. If you want wisdom, ask for it! Then do your part by digging into the Word of God and learn His way and He will pour out His wisdom upon you.
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
