James 1: 5-8
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Ask in faith – strong persuasion, with assurance, believe totally, conviction
Nothing wavering – don’t withdraw or separate yourself
Wave of the sea – to billow or dash over, surge
Driven with the wind – to toss with the wind
And tossed – a fan or bellows, to breeze up or agitate
Double minded man – vacillating in opinion or purpose
The more you learn about the Character of God, the more you will know that you can truly believe that God will give you the wisdom to make right decisions. You will be able to stand firmly and know without a doubt that He will answer.
The more you see God at work, the easier it will be to have the faith to believe that you can trust Him with every decision and problem even though He might choose not to answer the way you think He should.
