All Joy-Thursday Thought

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 
James 1:5,6 esv

Where do you get your advice from? A trial has a way its way of taking its toll on us. The natural response to trouble is to worry. Along with that we usually tend to want to run to someone or something for help and guidance. Most of us do right in understanding that we can’t handle all the troubles of life on our own, but go astray from there. We run to everyone and everything for help. Even as children of God we will try to find solace in horoscopes, talk show hosts, and our friends for help. But James says that we should ask God for wisdom!

Do you lack wisdom? We all do. But God has all that we need. In Bible study the other night someone mentioned how great it would be to talk with someone who is 100 years old. Just hearing about all the trials and triumphs a person of that age has endured would be encouraging and provide insight to life. This is very true, but how much more wisdom does Jesus have? He knows everything about you, the world you live in, and the purpose behind your trial. Ask Christ boldly with faith for the wisdom to come through your trial victorious and you will. Just don’t doubt Him.
