“If any of you need wisdom, ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone. He doesn’t find fault (James 1:5).”
The next few weeks I am trying an experiment. I am trying to quit my job in 30 days. I got the idea from career expert Dan Miller, who advises that continuing in a dead end job that only provides a paltry paycheck is not neccesary. It’s better to quit and take your skills elsewhere where you can fulfill your calling.
I have no idea how to quit my job in 30 days. I don’t have a Swiss bank account and it would be smart to have some paying endeavor to go to after I leave. So I am looking for advice on how to do it. I already know some things. For example, I have figured out what kind of job fits me. I just don’t know how to practically leave my current work in a month. I have talked to my wife about it, gone on Dan Miller’s social networking site and posted in the forum, and sent out an Email to friends and family asking for prayer.
But if I want the best advice, I’ll go to God for it. Solomon knew this. When God said to Solomon to ask for anything he wanted, he asked for wisdom. God commended Solomon for this. Solomon could have asked for money, a long life or for God to smite his enemies. But Solomon asked for a wise and understanding heart. So God made him the wisest man ever (I Kings 3:12).
God is generous with wise advice. He waits for us to come to Him for it. There is a condition, though. He wants us to believe that He will give it to us when we ask.
