May God give us Wisdom

17I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, 20which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. (Eph 1:17-23)

A clever person once said that “the only constant thing about life is change”. Things or people may come and go but change is always here. That’s what makes it so hard to know how to live. By the time you’ve adjusted to one change the situation has changed already. What we need is wisdom to know how to react or respond to those trials that come upon us.
It may be changing circumstances at work where we feel less and less valued.
It may be changes in our family situations that bring us hurt and pain. It may be changes in our health that were unexpected. It could be anything that brings us stress and a sense of anxiety or even panic.
We should never be afraid to as God for wisdom. God will never reproach us when we come to him for help. He takes us right where we are, and begins to work in us, to guide us and to heal us, as we open ourselves to him and to the wisdom he gives us.
As we go through our day and experience the trials and tribulations of the world, we must remember that God walks with us. We should never be afraid to ask God to give us the wisdom to cope with and to help us through our troubles. With God, these too shall pass.

Peace and love,


"Then Jesus said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me". (Luke 9:23)
