If Any of You Lack Wisdom…James 1:5

If any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God, that giveth to all men  liberally, and  upbraideth not;  and it shall be given him   James 1:5

I learned in Heaven that God is completely perfect and without flaw or lack of comprehension in any way. He truly has all wisdom, all knowledge, and perfect love and understanding.

I also learned in a way that mortality seems challenged to convey, that God desires to share His abundance and attributes with us. Mankind tends to be inherently selfish. God is inherently giving. That doesn’t mean He is willing to give us everything we want. It does mean that He wants to give us everything that we need.

Both mortality and heaven have taught me that when we need (want) assistance from our Creator, the best way to get it is to ask. I have also found that the closer I bring my life and my intentions to God, the more help I receive and recognize.

If it feels like your relationship with God is strained, or needs a little lift; I hope you will take a few minutes to talk to Him. Don’t tell him the things you think He wants to hear – share your heart with him. He knows you perfectly and He knows what you need.

He will answer – not always in the way you want or expect – but He will answer!

May His blessings be an abundant part of your life!

I hope you enjoy today’s story!

A Call From God

One Saturday night, a pastor was working late and decided to call his wife before he left for home. It was about 10:00 PM, but his wife didn’t answer the phone. The pastor let it ring many times. He thought it was odd that she didn’t answer but decided to wrap up a few things and try again in a few minutes. When he tried again, she answered right away. He asked her why she hadn’t answered before, and she said that it hadn’t rung at their house. They brushed it off as a fluke and went on their merry ways.

The following Monday, the pastor received a call at the church office, which was the phone that he’d used that Saturday night. The man that he spoke with wanted to know why he’d called on Saturday night. The pastor couldn’t figure out what the man was talking about.

Then the man said, “It rang and rang, but I didn’t answer.”

The pastor remembered the mishap and apologized for disturbing him, explaining that he’d intended to call his wife.

The man said, “That’s okay. Let me tell you my story. You see, I was planning to commit suicide on Saturday night, but before I did, I prayed, ‘God if you’re there, and you don’t want me to do this, give me a sign now.’ At that point, my phone started to ring. I looked at the caller ID, and it said, ‘Almighty God’. I was afraid to answer!”

The church that the pastor attends is called Almighty God Tabernacle.
