"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom; and with all thy getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee.... She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee"
(Prov. 4:7-9).

How many times have you prayed and failed to receive your answer? I can tell you it wasn't because God missed it! The Word of God says you ask and receive not because you ask amiss (James 4:3).

You need wisdom to ask for the right thing. That means you need God's thoughts about the situation before you can pray effectively.

You may be crying out to God for healing when what you actually need is a miracle. You may be praying about a money shortage when what you have is a giving shortage. You may even be causing the problem yourself without knowing it.

You need God's wisdom! How do you get it?

Jesus shows us in Luke 11:49. He began speaking, "Therefore...said the wisdom of God...," then He began to quote Scripture. He called the written Word of God the wisdom of God. God's wisdom is His Word.

So let the Word of God, the wisdom of God, begin to influence your thinking. Soak your mind in it. Don't just scan it lightly. Dig in it. Learn it. Take it seriously. Then begin to pray in the spirit. Let the Spirit of God start a process of spiritual insight in your heart as you pray and worship in the spirit.

After a while, you'll begin to understand things in a new way. You'll begin to have a whole new interpretation of the problem.

You may suddenly have a realization, a deep conviction, an inner knowing. Someone may call you on the telephone and say, "I just got a word from the Lord this morning and I'm so excited about it...." And what they say is exactly what you need to hear.

However you get it, remember, wisdom is the principal thing. God's way of thinking will save your life, pull you out of debt, and put you on the road to prosperity. It will introduce you to possibilities you have never seen before and get you out of any trouble.

Speak the Word: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore I get wisdom (Prov. 4:7).
