Fresh Hope – Day 12 (Pastor Gillian)

There are some things in life that I don’t know the answer to, they are not always major, often just everyday things… And I wonder to myself, which is the best direction to take?

I just say, “Lord, you know what’s best in this situation, please tell me.”


Last week someone asked me for some advice. I’m not sure if it was because I was tired, or very busy or I just didn’t know the answer; but this was my reply “I don’t know, but ask the Lord, He knows the answer.”


It may sound simple, but it’s true. You may not know, but He certainly does. We would save a lot of time, energy, and worry if we just asked Him. We’d also save ourselves from making mistakes.


The bible says in James 1v5:  “Ask the Lord for wisdom, He gives freely to those who ask.”


I love it when my children ask me for advice, it says they respect and value my opinion. How much more does our Heavenly Father love it, when we ask Him for His?


Last weekend, the emergency doctor sent our grandson, Noah to the hospital because they didn’t know why he couldn’t walk. It was a stressful pressured time. On the way to A&E my husband asked the Lord for wisdom. The answer came back, “Ask him what he’s jumped off…”


After a few cuddles off Papa, he said, “Noah have you jumped off anything lately?” The reply came back that he had jumped off his bunk bed without using the ladder. That little bit of wisdom changed the course of the tests that the hospital gave and revealed a damaged foot instead of something more sinister.


It’s wonderful to know that everyday of your life; He knows the answer that you need. He knows what’s best for your life. Whatever it is you need an answer on today… ASK HIM. He has the answer for you.
