If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
I find it funny that the scripture says, "If we lack wisdom". I would think we all do, but we just don't like admitting it. our pride gets in the way of truly seeking wisdom.
If we ask God, He will give us wisdom. He doesn't desire us to be unwise, but desires us to seek Him.
When we do ask, we need to ask knowing He will be faithful in granting our request. If we doubt, how can we truly receive all that God has for us?
There will be times that God uses trials and temptations to grant us wisdom. Sometimes we have to experience something before we fully understand.
Let us be firm in the resolution that God will grant us wisdom.
