Mature and Complete

This morning, I remembered James 1:4-5. Look at this in light of your situation today:

Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

James 1:4-5

I find myself thankful that God does indeed build maturity and a sense of being “complete,” but I couldn’t help but ask God if He could bring to my mind areas within my life that are “incomplete” or “immature.” Immediately, I think of then asking God for wisdom to grow in those things that come to mind.

The spiritual exercise was so helpful that I just had to share it!

In prayer, think for a few minutes: What feels incomplete? What feels immature? What feels lacking? Where do I now need more wisdom to grow in these areas? Ask the Lord for the wisdom you need.
