I suppose you’ve experienced this, I know I have: something looks like a good idea, it looks like it could be fun, and before you know it you’re getting smacked upside the head!  

The Christian life is often like that, but the stakes can be higher.  We may read something that seems smart, it may be something that’s trending in the Christian culture.  We figure, “That looks like a good idea!” and before you know it you find out it‘s a very bad idea that’s been packaged invitingly.  

How do we discern which is which?  Well, we have the Scriptures of course.  But we also have access to the wisdom of God, which He freely offers to those who ask; James 1:5 ~ 

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him

So, how do we gain this wisdom?  We ask God for it.  That’s called prayer, and it is a very good idea.  Sometimes God directly intervenes to protect us, but it’s been my experience that, more often than not, He asks me to exercise wisdom.  When I fail to do so, more often than not, He allows me to learn from the consequences of a dumb decision.

So how are you doing?  Are you in conversation with God?  If there was ever a time when we need wisdom, that time is now.  Will we respond in fear, or will we respond in faith?  That… requires wisdom.
