THE PROBLEM: Feeling like we are ill-equipped for something. Like we don’t know enough to do something or just can’t.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. James 1:5-6
THE GIFT: Wisdom will be given generously to all without finding fault. But there is a catch… look at the verse closely- ‘when you ask, you must believe and not doubt,’
THE CHOICE: Think of something you really wonder about. An opportunity that is before you or a choice you have to make. And then consider how you might apply this verse to an ‘asking out prayer’. (I’ll use words I often use.)
- Ask, “All-knowing God, am I supposed to do this?’ “Almighty God, show me the way.” “Father-God, what am I to do?” (Yep, it’s really this simple – hang on.)
- Belief, “I know you love me, and I know your plan is best- so I trust the path you have set before me and I will go where you ask. I will watch for a door and go through ones I feel are in line with your commands. I will know those that work- were just where you wanted me. The doors that close you also commanded. With humble pride, I will thank you now and later for your leading steps and loving care over the path you have me on.”
- No doubt, each morning and night I re-pray a prayer like above. All through the day, I try to be alert and mindful of the Holy Spirit nudging. I fill my mind with quiet time and joyful positive Christian music and education. I am alert to darkness that will try to push its way in and I immediately call it out and give to Jesus. One of the hugest parts of ‘no doubt’ is giving God the glory.
Have a wonderful day and remember…
