Open and constant communication with the Lord is a must. Giving Him power over all areas of life is a must. A surface relationship will never do. He searches your heart and knows your innermost being. He already knows everything, but invite Him to know you and dwell in you on purpose. Ask for His wisdom and guidance in all things. He’ll never steer you wrong. His love for us is unfailing.
James 3:17 says, “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. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.”
God tells us who lack wisdom just to ask for it. Sounds good, huh! Well, it IS good – if practiced. In order for us to receive we must ask the Lord with a hope and a confidence. The Bible tells us (also in James) that we have not not because we ask not.Until we have made Jesus Lord over all there will be ‘have nots’ in those areas we choose to keep Him out of. Would you feel awkward asking your neighbor who you’ve only said hello to a few times to help you landscape your yard? I know I would.
