Pray about it
It seems to me that we all need wisdom during these challenging times. Don’t you agree? Some of us have lost jobs or important contracts. Others have lost relationships due to death or a COVID-19 stress increase. Life has truly thrown all of us a curveball.
Oops, I’m afraid that Americans understand the baseball analogy of a curveball, but I’ll need a little help from other English-speaking people from around the world. Can you help me find an equivalent example? Are there any cricket players or fans reading A Miracle Every Day? I imagine you have a culturally appropriate sentence.
This is actually a funny example of today’s principle about prayer: sometimes we all need help, and prayer is the perfect vehicle to acquire wisdom. The Bible says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” (James 1:5, NIV)
I must confess that it seems much easier to get a direct answer from my mentor or a pastor, but neither want to tell me what to do most of the time. My mentor would often say, “Paul, just pray about it and see what God says.” He obviously didn’t get my point because I wanted him to tell me God’s will or direction for my life. But he had a lot more wisdom than me. He knew I had to develop wisdom the hard way and learn to hear from God myself.
The Bible points to something called the still, small voice of God. Elijah had a similar struggle with hearing God: “and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave.” (1 Kings 19:12-13, NKJV)
Moses also sought to hear from God. He climbed a mountain, fasted for forty days, and spoke to the Lord face to face. But Moses refused to move forward unless God led him: “‘If You are pleased with me, teach me Your ways so I may know You and continue to find favor with You. Remember that this nation is Your people.’ The LORD replied, ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’ Then Moses said to Him, ‘If Your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.’” (Exodus 33:13-15, NIV)
I want to encourage you to pray about your choices and tune your ears to hear the voice of God. He will help you tap into the right thoughts and wise decisions that will enable you to thrive through these troubled times because you are a miracle.
Thank You Jesus for wisdom. Amen ??
I have a rare Immune Illness, called SCLERODERMA. I am 75_ and Lost My Husband of 56 Years, on January16th 2021. He died, in My arms, and it was such a GREAT BLESSING, to BOTH of Us.
On April 19th, 2021, I had My 9th operation since July 2018…and
most likely, will soon be having another.
2 Days after My Husband died, I turned My burdens over, to GOD, and have not felt an anxious moment, throughout everything.
THANK YOU GOD, for ALL THINGS, GOOD OR BAD, for each experience, is a ‘lesson learned’, and will be handled, in HIS TIME, and HIS FASHION, ALWAYS.
PRAISE GOD, for LOVING, this Humble Servant!
This is so beautiful!!!! Thank you for sharing. I pray you have that feeling for all the rest of your days. I’m 37, almost 38, and I have recently found my heart in the Lord! I was raised in church and I loved it, but I started to slip away and forget. It wasn’t until my whole life, slowly started to slip away and my health got really bad. My partner and father of my kids had an affair, and I walked away from a job and a few other things after 16+ years! My identity was completely shattered. But I didn’t know He was correcting my path like a loving father would. He saw that I was poisoning myself, and starving my spiritual soul. The things I thought made me happy and identified me were actually things that were temporary. I had to find the eternal meaning and purpose to my life! After my own dad saved me and prayed with me and told me God loves me so much, did I feel this deep part of me being called home. I’d been on a long long journey and was calling the valley I found myself in, “good enough” when I knew it wasn’t. The Lord got me back on my feet, and set my soul on fire in finding that mountain! Jesus is always there and He’s got it the whole way! I pray you will dance and embrace your husband and the Lord will embrace you one day!! Keep trekking and walking with the Lord. Remember some can walk our path with us, but they can never walk it for us!! God bless you and keep you always. To another daughter in Christ, peace be with you.
Oh God bless you Maggie I am so glad you have found great comfort in God and his word he is always good, loving, gracious Amen you brought a tear to my eye may you continue to walk with God in this time and then forever eternally in heaven in the end. My love to you.
Thank Lord you are my Wisdom… Amen

I have prayed years now for family. I just turned 71…no family. I was raised wrongful, one abuse after another, abandoned yet there were 8 of us, tortured, survived through His Love, still no family. I am very ill now, losing all my facilities…ALL. Yet I TRUST Jesus’s Word, promises and the one I hold on to most is, He is at the Door…nothing matters me anymore but To See His RETURN: His promise ‘I go and prepare a place for you in my home there are many mansions and if I GO and prepare a place I will return that where I am, you may be with Me Also. Even so, come LORD JESUS come

Peace and Comfort from above Janette. I won’t say I understand your pain but Jesus does. Hebrews 4:15-16 We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all–all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.(MSG). I decree peace untold upon your heart and mind. I rebuke every evil spirit working against your life. I declare restoration in Jesus name. In Him ALL things, EVERYTHING is possible. Hugs and love.

My name are John Enitan. These are my prayer point. I have been in a business transaction with an European Bank called Euroexim Bank for an SBLC business worth €300m for the past four months with my European partners . At this point we are facing a challenge. My European partners wants euroexim to write an official letter of Undertaken that if the fee for issuance is paid euroexim will send the swift MT760 to them. Somehow euro exim Bank has refused to write the undertaken. This has created an obstacle. I pray that the Head of Global Sales of Euro exim will change mind and prepare the letter of Undertaken this week for the business to move forward and I pray that the business is successful. I will give God of this altar all the Glory.
I feel lost
