The Book of James, chapter 1 verse 5 reads: “If any of us lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men freely.” God gives us an amazing range of freedoms when we learn to trust him in all that we say and do. However, many of us constantly make foolish mistakes because we don’t consult with God on the various things we encounter and the daily decisions we make. With the rise of social media and people’s ability to post their life on a web page in seconds and the ability to comment on someone else’s life simultaneously, consulting with God for His wisdom in each situation is not the norm. It is important to realize, that people of faith have not only an obligation but a “Free Option to ask God” before we do or say anything. This Freedom to ask God for wisdom assures us that we will be equipped with the right thoughts to make wise decisions in all that we do. The song writer put this freedom in these lyrics “Oh what feats we often forfeit, Oh what needless pains we bare, All because we do not carry, Everything to God in prayer. This is the Freedom we have to ask God for Wisdom, take everything to God in Prayer.
