James 1:5-8

James 1:5-8 King James Version (KJV)
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.

James 1:5-8 Living Bible (TLB)

5 If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him; he will not resent it.6 But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to tell you, for a doubtful mind will be as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind;7-8 and every decision you then make will be uncertain, as you turn first this way and then that. If you don’t ask with faith, don’t expect the Lord to give you any solid answer.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

5 God is the giver of wisdom, God was the one that Solomon his wisdom, God does not give a worldly wisdom as many confuse with true wisdom but He gives the heavenly wisdom. We are to wrong but in the right to ask Him, we should seek Him for answers this is wisdom. Looking to God for answers is true wisdom.

6 It is takes faith to trust in Him enough to follow thru with His answers and if we are not willing to follow thru with His word, we will most likely not be given the answer. We must also trust in Him that He can do all things to His will for us and others. We have to trust in His power over everything else and all the negatives that try to get us to trust in something or someone else. It is hard to move thru a wave it keeps pushing you back and we will be the same if we do not have faith in the Lord the waters of life the troubles will push us back to where we can not go forward but thru faith in Him we can get past the ways and move forward.

7 If we don’t have faith in Him then we have nothing.

8 When we are double minded we are unable to move if is mind is taking us in two different directions we just fall down instead of going forward.
