The Wisdom of God

“Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand His decisions and His ways!” Romans 11:33

God has the ability to contrive and obtain perfect ends to His plans. With His wisdom, God makes no mistakes. He knows best and His guidance and instructions are the best.

Knowing this, why do I not consult with Him about everything?

Proverbs 2:6 tells me that "
For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding."

I can gain much earthly knowledge on my own, but if I want wise guidance it must come from the Lord God. Since I can't see the end results of His plans, I should ask His advice about everything - before I write a post on my blog, discipline my children, talk to my husband about a disagreement, volunteer for a ministry at church, give money to a Christian organization.

Even though I have the head knowledge about what seems to be right, I should still talk to God about it first. He may be leading me to do something else or to do nothing at all.

I'm beginning to realize that I need to be seeking God's will on a daily basis - not just once a day, but through out the day as situations arise. Sometimes, at the end of the day or even a few weeks later, I realize that I should have consulted with God first before diving right on in.
His wisdom is necessary if I want to live in His will and be used by Him.
