JAMES 1:5-8 TRIALS ARE FOR YOUR FAITH

21Jun

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. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; Jas 1:8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

In this section we will see that God wants us to come to Him in the midst of trials and He wants us to ask Him for wisdom to get through the trial.  We might not get the reason why, but we will get what we need to get through it.  He will give all of us who ask wisdom and He will not get tired of us coming and asking again for it. He also says to ask in faith, because if we don’t we will not get it.  Go to chapter 4 for more insight on why we don’t get from God.

  1. V5 -8 Count on God in your Trials

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling.

  • God is willing and able to help people who turn to Him no matter what their situation
  • Ask for Wisdom from God with Single mindedness
  • Wisdom is the ability to make the right decisions based on knowledge

God will give generously

He is the true source of wisdom

1 Kings 3:28 And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had rendered; and they feared the king, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to administer justice.

1 Kings 4:29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and exceedingly great understanding, and largeness of heart like the sand on the seashore.

Without Reproach

You can come to Him as often as you want or need no matter what the problem is and He will be there for you

  • V6 Ask in Faith believing God

Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."

V6-7 Not doubting... You will receive nothing if you do

Proverbs 24:10 If you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small.

V8  Double minded an unsaved man who is a hypocrite who cannot trust God when trials come

 

Mark 8:36 "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?

   John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Have you trusted Him as your Savior? He can Save you if You ask Him based on His death, burial, and resurrection for your sins. Believe in Him for forgiveness of your sins today.

 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  -John 8:32
