Devotionals by Dr. Ed Young


October 27

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. - >James 1:5

The key to God’s wisdom storehouse is petitionary prayer. Those too proud to ask won’t get the rich supply. To ask is to acknowledge one’s need. Pride keeps us from asking. “Don’t tell me how to drive!” I snapped at Jo Beth one day as we tried to take the shortest route and make a tight schedule. Later, while preparing to preach, I came face to face with my pride. Men sometimes have a hard time asking—and receiving—directions. But God promises that if we recognize our need, and from that humility ask for His wisdom, we will receive it in abundance.

About The Winning Walk

About Dr. Ed Young

Dr. H. Edwin Young was born in Laurel, Mississippi. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of 12 through the leading of his pastor's wife, Mrs. Gates.

Following graduation from high school in Laurel, Dr. Ed Young entered the University of Alabama as an engineering major. Mid-way through his freshman year, challenged by an atheist in his dorm who questioned his belief in God, he began to seek God's purpose for his life. Six months later, he surrendered to the call to preach the Gospel, and enrolled at Mississippi College to continue his education.

On June 28, 1959, he married Jo Beth Landrum. Dr. Young's preparation for the ministry continued at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. His first pastorate was in North Carolina, and he pastored in North and South Carolina until 1978 when he moved to Houston, Texas. He became the pastor at Second Baptist Church where he continues to pastor today. The congregation has grown from 2,000 members in 1978 to 6 campuses and we have reached over 70 thousand members.

Dr. Young was elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention in June of 1992 and again in June, 1993. He is the author of many books including, Total Heart Health, The 10 Commandments of Parenting, and The 10 Commandments of Marriage. Dr. Young's broadcast ministry, The Winning Walk, can be seen and heard across North America and throughout the world.
