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.

“Where Is God?” – Daily Inspiration, July 23, 2102

“There is a time for everything and a season for evert activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

You may have asked or may be asking yourself now, “Where is God?” especially when troubles mount or our plans go awry. God’s plans for us don’t always match the plans we make for ourselves. His will for us does not match our will. When we choose to trust God, we must also trust His timing, no matter how difficult it is for us to understand. Don’t doubt or resent God’s timing. Doing so can lead to despair, rebellion and moving forward without making Him the center of your decisions. There is never a time to doubt God’s complete love for us. Not now. Not ever.

God bless you today.
