The first chapter of James proceeds quickly from trials to maturity to wisdom. When we begin to recognize trials as a privilege God allows His children to experience, we can discover joy and maturity. This process isn’t natural, though; we need God’s wisdom for it to properly run its course. In this message, Alistair Begg teaches what wisdom looks like in our lives and how to petition God for it without doubt.
5If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6But 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. 7For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
