How many times have you thought: If I just knew who to ask about my situation/circumstance! It would be so great to have someone at your fingertips who could give you just the right direction you need — someone who would always be there for you and actually have the right answer. Well, I’ve got good news for your—we have that Someone and He always has the right answer!
The Holy Spirit has been given to us to lead, direct, and guide us along our Christian journey. He is always available – 24/7 – and will never lead us astray.
Jesus has been made wisdom unto us. That means when we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, He becomes our wisdom. How awesome is that! That means we have access to all the godly wisdom there is. Think about it – all the wisdom you’ll ever need is available through the Lord Jesus via the Holy Spirit, Who represents the Lord Jesus here on earth.
When Jesus was resurrected, He sent the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us into all Truth. That means can always get the right answer to our situation by asking the Lord for wisdom and He will always give it to us.
John 14:16-17 (KJV) 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
John 14:26 (KJV) 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 16:13 (KJV) 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Another thing I want you to notice is that all the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Jesus and, get this, we dwell in Him. Therefore, we have access to all the wisdom of the Godhead! That’s almost too much to comprehend with our mortal minds. That’s why we have to receive this truth into our spirits by faith. We can believe with our spirit things that our minds don’t understand.
1 Corinthians 1:30 (KJV) 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Colossians 1:19 (KJV) 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
Colossians 2:3 (KJV) 3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Colossians 2:9-10 (KJV) 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
John 1:16 (KJV) 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
Proverbs 2:7a (KJV) 7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous…
God is not withholding anything from us. He has given us all things to be victorious on planet earth. He has reserved His wisdom for the righteous and we need to avail ourselves of it. Why go through this life struggling because you “just don’t know what to do?” You don’t have to. God has so graciously provided His wisdom to see you through. Ask Him and He will give it to you. Then go on and live a life in the Lord that’s worth living!
James 1:5-8 (KJV) 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.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
