Just Ask for Wisdom!

In 2 Samuel 16:10-12 tells a story of King David and Shimei (who was a member of Sauls' family) He was cursing and throwing stones at him, accusing him of murdering Saul and his family. Abishai was ready to cut his head off, so in verse 10: "No" the king said, "What am I going to do with you sons of Zeruiah! if the Lord has told him to curse me, who am I to stop him?" Then David said to Abishai and the other officers, "My own son is trying to kill me, Shouldn't this relative of Saul have even more reason to do so? Leave him alone and let him curse, for the Lord has told him to do it, verse 12: And perhaps the Lord will see that I am being wronged and will bless me because of these curses." What does this mean? "the Lord has told him to do it", why didn't he resist? isn't it human nature to resort to, "let me cut his head off", so why was King David not "resisting"? Do you think he said "I am going to accept this, God, I don't understand what you are trying to tell me," do you think he prayed for wisdom? Everything that happens to us is Father Filtered! Our acceptance of what we are going through will bring Gods' wisdom! When we resist we can become offended with God! What if the only way blessings could come is by accepting this as part of Gods' plan for our life! (Now I am not talking about disease or sickness! our salvation, healing, and our peace was all taken care of on the cross) these are things that come at us, things we don't understand. Ask God for wisdom, don't bury your head in the sand, don't resist, just ask God "What are you trying to tell me?" Accept this as part of the plan He has for your life and expect God to speak to you, be patient and persevere!
