God is a creative problem solver

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone.  James 1:5-6a

When we seek God’s wisdom in decision-making we have to be open-ended. Presenting Him with a list of pros and cons is like asking God a true-false question. God is a higher level thinker and creative problem solver. He’s into essay questions. Often instead of giving us answers we discover that we are already in the middle of His solution.

Lord, out of everything I do know and everything I haven’t even considered, open my heart and mind and vision to Your solutions.
