Dear Daughter of Almighty God
James 1:5-8 (ESV)
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But 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. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
As we go through life we need wisdom in good times and bad so we need to ask God as His Word says He will give generously without reproach. Reproach means admonish, chide, accuse, reprove, criticizes, scold, rebuke and reprimand, so God will not judge us or punish us for asking.
We must ask in faith knowing that God will fulfil His Word, God does not lie cannot lie so we need to get ourselves to the point of knowing that we know that God is not just able to but will fulfil His Word. The only way of knowing that we know that God will answer is by getting in to the Word of God and feeding our spirit and faith.
Having faith in God also makes us stable because if we are double-minded we are unstable in all our ways. If not having faith makes us unstable then having faith must make us stable. God is a firm foundation and when we build our lives on Him we will be stable in all our ways.
The Word of God a firm foundation.
