James 1:5-7 (NLT) "If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord."
Today I feel like the unsettled wave of the sea.... My example to the lost world has been unstable...
I say one thing and my actions say the opposite. I so desire to please God and my flesh wants to float along in my emotions.....
THE ABOVE SCRIPTURE SPOKE TO MY HEART IN SUCH A HUGE WAY...... Such people should not expect to receive ANYTHING FROM THE LORD! Wow..... BUT GOD!
Only through God can I do the right thing... THE HARD THING.... God's way is never easy but it is always, always our only choice. I have struggled in my singleness and at times ventured out on my own to find that perfect match.
Today however.... I can rest in the fact that God already knows the desires of my heart and as long as I am determined to walk in his "perfect ways" he will hear my prayers as long as my faith is in God and God alone.... NOT IN MY ABILITIES!
So for the word for the day on Wednesday: I NEED WISDOM! :)
