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. James 1:5
You’ve probably said,“If only Jesus would come and tell me what to do!” I have. I reason that if I just knew what it was, I could easily go do it. I said that just last week to my husband.
“What would Jesus do?”has become a Christian idiom. Rubber bracelets were made to wear on our wrist, ever a reminder to consider Him before making decisions. The good news is ~ in so many instances ~ we do know what He did.
We saw him with the shamed. He restored their honor.
We saw Him with the disciples. He was a patient teacher.
We saw Him with His family. He made them accountable to God.
We saw Him with His enemy. He discerned the smokescreen because Satan is a liar.
In many of these interactions, a character trait of Jesus was revealed or a pattern of behavior established. We can ask God for wisdom to interpret it for our particular situations. He promises He’ll answer. He gives liberally.
Of all things I ask for, Lord, teach me to hear Your voice. I am a blind and deaf child unless You open my eyes and ears. Please. Amen
