He Must Believe And Not Doubt – Daily Inspiration, August 14, 2012

“If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord, he is a doule-minded man, unstable in all he does.” James 1: 5-8

We can ask God for wisdom to help us through trying times. This type of wisdom is not only knowledge but the ability to make wise decisions in difficult situations. When we ask, though, we must also believe that it will be to given us. This belief is certain of God’s existence and obedient to His Word. God’s Word is not like the advice we receive from a friend – open only to consideration with the choice of whether to follow or not. No, God’s Word is definite and assured to be the perfect path to travel. His loving-care abounds. Although he does not grant every selfish request, He will align our desires with His will for our lives.

May the Lord be with you today.
