“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere,” ~James 3:17

Yes, my Savior walks on water in the midst of the stormy gale. He hears my cries. He promises to give wisdom generously and without reproach (James 1:5).

Of course, the world makes it all so complicated. Endless books.

Don’t get me wrong. I love books.

But there are innumerable and contradictory voices out there, claiming that ultimate wisdom exists in any number of broad, worldly paths:  Sand versus the Solid Rock.

On my own, the voices in the wind and waves confuse me.

But with Abba, the good news is perfectly clear. He gives wisdom to those who diligently seek Him.  He illuminates truth.

Indeed, the Light of the World is a lamp for my feet, (Psalm 119:105).

He promises to guide you and me in paths of wisdom; By His Spirit, we are able to differentiate powerful truth from destructive lies.

And so, we run to our gracious Abba and cling to our Savior in childlike faith…
