Daniel 2:20 | “May the name of God be praised forever and ever, for wisdom and power belong to Him.”
Do you ever find yourself praying for more wisdom? That is definitely where I am these days. Life keeps rolling and there are so many decisions requiring my input, that I find myself more and more scratching my head, wondering if I will ever truly know the actual answer.
But this morning in my Bible study time, God, in His awesome and all-knowing way, reminded me of something very important.
I don’t have to know it all. I don’t have to understand everything. In fact, sometimes it’s a whole lot better when I don’t, because then I most assuredly have to rely on the One who does.
When Daniel talked about praising God forever because of His wisdom and power, Daniel was feeling a little stunped and stupid too. The king of his land had a dream he wanted interpreted by a wise man, but he wasn’t giving any part away of what he’d dreamed.
I imagine Daniel felt a little overwhelmed and bewildered, especially since his very life was on the line! But what Daniel lacked for in knowledge, he made up for in his faith – he knew he might not know, but God knew all. And God would show Daniel what he needed to know.
That’s what we can believe as well. That no matter what curve balls come, no matter what struggles we face, feeling the weight of wishing we knew more about something, or had more experience in a particular area – we can know that our God does know, and He will show is what we need to know as the time comes.
We need only ask.
Today, before asking for wisdom and knowledge, take some time to praise God for the wisdom and knowledge He demonstrates daily. Thank Him and be confident that when you don’t know, He does.
