Lady praying before cooking a meal.

Every product of genius must be a product of inspiration!

You'll be amazed if you'll just pray! The Lord says, "If any man lack wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like the waves of the sea, and let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord!" (Jam.1:5-7) If you lack wisdom, just ask the Lord.--And of course, we always lack wisdom, so always ask the Lord!

You can pray and get answers immediately, but if you lean on your own understanding and your own wisdom, you're apt to make some sad mistakes. If you do things in your own strength, relying on your own talents, your own wisdom, your own pride, your own knowledge, it will come to naught! But if you depend on the Lord, "in all your ways acknowledge Him, He shall direct thy paths!" (Pro.3:6)

No matter how small you are, there's a very big God waiting to help you Who is more than big enough for the job! So ask the Lord! Lean on the Lord, look to the Lord! Don't depend on your own talents! God has more talents than you have! He's greater than you'll ever be. But if He inspires you and He guides you, whatever you do will be the greatest!
