Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at James 1:5

"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him."

James says that God gives to all men "liberally," which means two things. First, the word means "to stretch out," and it pictures God stretching or spreading out His table of wisdom. God dispenses His wisdom to those of us who ask by lavishly pouring out to us the full supply of that which we need. The second meaning reflects the word "singly." God is the opposite of the "double-minded" man mentioned in 1:8. God gives His wisdom simply, plainly, and individually to all who will ask of Him.

God also gives His wisdom without reproach (that is, without insult). When we pray for wisdom, God does not scold us for coming. He is a God who is generous and gracious, so seekers should approach Him in faith. If we approach God without faith, we have decided to live life our own way, to make our own decisions, to separate ourselves from Him.

James says the person who prays while doubting is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed about by the wind. However, the faithful man is stable, looking in only one direction for the wisdom he needs. And he knows the God to whom he prays is able and willing to respond to his need.

Bro. Paul
