I need it most, I ask for it least

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open. (James 1:5-8 MSG)

Why is it that the thing I need the most I ask for the least? I am kind of “floating” in life right now. I clearly heard from God to prepare myself to move to the place He would lead, then had a pretty big disappointment, and now God and I are in “trust me while we wait” mode.

If I’m being really honest, I’d tell you I don’t really like “trust me while we wait” mode. “Trust me while we wait” mode takes things out of my hands. My nature is to control and manipulate the next step. “Trust me while we wait” doesn’t allow me to do any of those things, I have to trust.

And yet, there’s a whisper that continues to make it’s way into my heart that speaks the words – “Ask me for wisdom…try me.”

I could use some wisdom and yet it seems that is the thing I ask for least.
