If there was a person who knew your future and could tell you what choices were best for you, would you go to them and ask for help? Most of us would say yes, but have we realized that God is that exact one who knows our future and what is best for us? Look to the one who knows your future.
Many of us look to psychiatrists, friends, and other people for wisdom and advice. While none of this is bad, we remember that at the end the best wisdom we can get for our lives is from God. While other people’s advice may be good, no one can guarantee you that their suggestion is the best for you because they don’t know your future. God however knows your future and what is best for you.
Even the wisdom of the wisest person on earth is not comparable to the wisdom and knowledge of God. 1 Corinthians 1:25 says, “for the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom..” God has all the answers to the uncertainties of life. Make your final decisions based on the wisdom and direction that God has given you.
No one is as wise as God.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you“, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God knows the plans for your life because he made those very plans for you. Before you were even born, God already set you apart for a special work (Jeremiah 1:5). God knows what you need to do today to get to your tomorrow.
God wants to give you direction and wisdom for your life, but he wants you to ask. James 1:5 says, “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.” You are never disqualified from getting answers and wisdom from God. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, God still loves you and sees you as his child. Look into God’s word and ask God for wisdom and he will give it to you generously as long as you have faith in Jesus and believe that he is all you need.
God promises to those who ask, they will receive (Luke 11:10). The reason you might not be seeing miracles in your life may simply be because you have not asked and believed God to do miracles in your life. Jesus tells his disciples a parable of a persistent man who asked his friend for bread even during midnight. Jesus says in Luke 11:13, “...even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.”
Jesus used this example to show us that when we pray and ask God, it should be in faith and boldness – not limiting ourselves to our common sense or knowledge. Whatever you need from God, whether it be miraculous healing or what job to take, ask him in faith and boldness, believing that he will provide all you need. Your prayers will open doors for God to do the impossible.
Have you looked to God and asked him to help you make the right choices you need to make today? Have you realized that God has all the answers you need, and to receive his wisdom requires you to simply ask and believe? If you’re going through uncertainty today, ask God who knows your future. If you haven’t asked God in the past for wisdom, start today knowing that he will not judge you for your past but desires to be your father and provider.
Entrust your life to God and look to him for direction and you will see that it will be the best decision you will ever make. You can be 100% sure that your life is in good hands when it’s in God’s hands. So remember, ask the one who knows your future.
Prayer: Lord, you know my future and your plans for me. Help me to look to your wisdom and direction every day.
