Wisdom

Today we continue to think about the characteristics of God, thinking about wisdom today. While if I’m asked if God is wise, my response will always be “yes”; I do often struggle with doubt. I often find myself questioning that this plan is a good one.

If you are like me, we are not alone in this doubt. James writes, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.  But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.” (James 1:5-8)

Paul writes in part of his doxology just how wise our Lord is: “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!” (Romans 11:33).

Though it is beyond our human understanding, God knows all; he is omniscient. He can see the whole story, including yours, all the way down to the tiniest detail.

Today, I would encourage you to take some time to praise Him for being all-knowing. Take some time to confess areas where you might be doubting him as well.
