Put Your Hand UP!!!

Monday 23rd May 2011

Have you ever experienced a time when you weren’t sure what to do? Faced a difficult issue? Or even a great opportunity but needed guidance on what step to take next? 

From time to time, we have all experienced situations like this.

Proverbs 12:15 (NLT) says, “Fools think their own way is right, but the wise listen to others.”

There are times in life when you need to put your hand up and ask for advice. It’s a sign of strength when you are able to do this! Here are a few thoughts about who to ask for wisdom:

1. Ask God. He always cares, listens and responds to you. Sometimes it’s not in the way or timing that you expect, but go to God first for He is the source of all wisdom and knowledge.

2. Ask someone you trust. Someone you know who will keep your conversation confidential, who will listen with compassion and be able to support you.

3. Ask someone with experience. Nothing is new under the sun. Somewhere, someone in the world has faced a similar circumstance to you and has walked through it well. You can learn so much from their experiences and apply it to your own.

A Girl of Wisdom is not afraid to put her hand up for help and to ask for advice when she needs it. She knows that she greatly benefits from asking God what to do in her circumstance and from the counsel of trusted friends.
