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. 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.
James reveals good news – we don’t have to face the problems of life in our wisdom. If, in the time of trial, we lack spiritual insight, we are to approach God and tell Him of our perplexity and ignorance. God promises if we ask, He will give us the wisdom we need to understand what we are experiencing.
