Ask the Person who knows
LORD, be merciful to us, for we have waited for you. Be our strong arm each day and our salvation in times of trouble.
In that day He will be your sure foundation, providing a rich store of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. The fear of the LORD will be your treasure.— Isaiah 33:2, 6 NLT
In life we choose the easy path to finding answers, and when they are all different, we hedge our bets. A better strategy is to go to the real source, which is only found in a relationship — which means we have to work at it and be prepared to trust.
Lord God, thank You for Your Son Jesus and what He has done for me. Thank You that because of Him, I have a friendship with You and can draw close — and know the assurance of Your strong arm and salvation.
I know that all knowledge and wisdom has its source in You. I’m sorry that I have looked to other people, and tried to find easy sources, rather than drawing deeply on my relationship with You. I turn to You now and ask You to speak to me about my need……………… Help me to be patient in waiting on You, to trust what I hear, and act on what You show me to do. For the honour and glory of Jesus, Amen.
