"Seeking Wisdom"

The life story of Dr. Ben Carson was recently featured on "UP TV," and it was an amazing narrative. Dr. Carson was the brilliant neurological surgeon from Johns Hopkins Hospital who was the first, in 1987, to successfully separate Siamese twins joined at the back of the head with a single blood system.

The story was intriguing. It told of his intense struggles to find new procedures. It told of his attempts to save lives where no other doctor would consider operating. It was a remarkable story.

Dr. Carson is a praying man and I believe God honored that. In one part of the story (and I realize this is just a dramatized story based on his life) he was struggling to know how to proceed. His mother told him, "It's all in there [in his mind]. You just have to find it."

If Dr. Carson is open to asking for God's illumination, does God put the needed answers in a brilliant surgeon's mind and heart? I think so.

So, when you have a need, does God put the answers in your mind and heart? Does God put the answers I need in my heart?

If God can supply answers for one person, won't He do the same for another? Doesn't He care for each of His children with the same love? Does God play favorites? Is God partial to one person and unfair to another? I don't think so. That isn't God's character.

When we trust God and pray for His wisdom, He is willing to give it. God loves you. God loves me. Trust Him to give you the answers you need – and more. Truly we serve an abundant God.
