“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.” James 1:5-6 NLT
Today’s scripture in my devotion time really hit home for me. Many times I quickly beg God to do something for me, not being confident that he would follow through.
James reminds us that we need to be confident in our faith that God is who he said he was and will do what he promised.
If we as people of faith had the utmost confidence in Jesus to deliver us from our worldly problems, and then in turn lived like we believed it…. Imagine how many people our lives would reach.
As for me, I will focus on the Lord even when it gets really tough. That and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit is what I count on to get me through life.
Till next week,
