A little bit more from James 1:

[you can read about the first few verses Here]James-series

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.

Wisdom is one of the most valuable things we can possess … but godly wisdom ONLY comes from God. [the book of Proverbs 🙂 ]

Wisdom: the discernment to make the right {Biblical} choice, before acting in haste {in emotion}

ask in faith

I cannot rely on my experiences in life to give me God’s view of a matter.

Thus: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God

He WILL give to us… liberally: simply and openly. [Proverbs 2:1-6]

And He upbraideth not: He will not reproach or cast us down for asking!

BUT, we must ask in faith, nothing wavering: not doubting {like Peter: Matthew 14:25-33}

If we waver, we are like the sea–being driven and tossed to and fro. We will not be stable in our wisdom.

Because we also learn that: A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

james 1-6

And a man that wavers cannot: think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

Ask God for His wisdom

Be confident that He will lead you.

Continue in this direction with faith!
