Prayer for Wisdom
October 21, 2015
In James 1:5-8 we are told to ask for Wisdom. It turns out that the phrase "without doubting" in most English translations is unfortunate. God will answer that prayer, our faith is not the subject. The KJV is actually best here. It says "without wavering." The prayer is not the subject, the Answer is! If you ask God for wisdom, you will probably be surprised at His answer, and might waver in your response. That is what James says we must avoid. Don't doubt the answer, and you will be wiser.
