James 1:5 – But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Understanding that “Name it and Claim it” is not the way to go, we do know that it is okay to ask our Heavenly Father for some things. The one most important item we should seek, in my estimation, is found in James 1:5 – – Wisdom! It is my contention that this is the key to all success. Nor is this contention mere speculation: Perhaps the greatest kings of Israel of all time, Solomon, sought but one thing from God – Wisdom! Once his request for that was fulfilled, he became a man of great stature, not only in his own country but in the then known world!
As we face the trials and tribulations that will confront us in the New Year, we need ask for but one thing: The Wisdom to cope with each and every situation we encounter. Money will not be the solution to our issues, nor will a new job nor a different spouse! All we need is Wisdom, and, Praise God, when we ask for it we have the assurance that He will give it to us Generously!!!!!
