Feeling Dumb?


I’ll admit. Some days I feel like an idiot. Ok, that’s about every day. I wonder what God even wants with me some days, because I feel so useless. Is there something that God wants me to do, or some greater purpose I can fulfill?

Yeah. It’s one of those days.

What’s a guy to do, but turn to his blog and meditate on this scripture? I think today qualifies as a day that I lack wisdom. So I meet that first criterion. So what must follow? Well that’s the hard part. This verse says I need to go before the King of the Universe and admit to Him that I am an idiot. Never mind that He already knows this. Never mind that He knows me so well that He know what I will ask, how I will ask, and in what tone I will ask. He already knows me, my abilities and frustrations. And yet He still allows me, even calls me into His presence as a son.

Who of us can claim any genius before a God like that?

Father in Heaven, Lord of Heaven and Earth, today I come before you seeking wisdom. I don’t have it. Compared to you I am a worm, though probably less than that. Help me to see today your vision and plan for my life. Help me to grow into the man of godliness that you call me to be. Help me to be more like You. I need you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
