Asking God for Wisdom

From Series: Faith That Works, Volume 1

James 1:5-8  (ID: 2558)

Wisdom is knowing how to live God’s way in God’s world. In this message from James 1, Alistair Begg distinguishes wisdom from insight, information, and intelligence and challenges us to seek God for the wisdom needed in all of our trials.


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.
