Life often throws us into situations that require incredible wisdom. We don’t always know what to do. The Bible gives us some clear instructions about what to do when we need wisdom.

I talk about it in the video below, but in short form, there are three basic things…

  1. Ask God for Wisdom: James 1:5 tells us that if we need wisdom we should ask God, and since He is generous, He will give us wisdom when we ask.
  2. Seek Wisdom in God’s Word: Proverbs 2:6 says that knowledge and understanding come from God’s mouth. The Bible is the Word of God. We can be sure that we can get knowledge and understanding (wisdom) when we seek it in His Word.
  3. Seek Counsel from Wise Counselors: The book of Proverbs says time and time again that in a multitude of counselors there is safety. When we need wisdom, it is a good idea to seek counsel, or advice, from others. We should always compare their advice to what the Bible says, but we can learn a lot from those who are wise (Check out this video, too: He who walks with wise men will be wise).

What do you do when you don’t know what to do?
