Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
I had a friend a long time ago who always said to me, “If you don’t ask, the answer’s ‘no.’ But if you do ask, it could be ‘yes.'” He applied it to many parts of his life. A simplified version of that is, “It can’t hurt to ask.”
When we’re dealing with a loving Heavenly Father, however, asking takes on a whole new meaning. When we unselfishly ask for things from the Father, He delights in answering. Perhaps the greatest things we can ask for we won’t know we have received it until after the fact: wisdom. The Bible is filled with references that tell us wisdom is supreme and thought it cost you all you have, get wisdom (Proverbs 4:7). But asking for wisdom involves trust, trust that when you need it the most, He’ll give it to you.
You can’t ask for wisdom from God enough because in these troubling days, we need it the most.
