Are you at the end of your rope, weary, cast down, about to give up? I challenge you to answer the following questions with a simple yes or no:
- • Does the Word of God promise to supply all your needs?
- • Did Jesus say he would never leave you but would be with you to the end?
- • Did he say he would keep you from falling and present you faultless before the Father’s throne?
- • Did he promise you all the seed you need to spread the gospel?
- • Is he more willing to give than you are to receive? Is Christ greater in you than he that is in the world?
- • Are God’s thoughts toward you good thoughts? Is he a rewarder of those who diligently seek him?
- • Is he preparing a place for you in glory? Is he coming in the clouds to gather his people home? Are you going with him when he comes?
Your answer to all of these should be “Absolutely, yes!”
Now, take inventory. Ask yourself, “Do I really believe God is faithful to his promises or do I waver in my trust? How well do I know God’s Word and his assurances?”
Scripture clearly says, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:5-7, NKJV).
You can lay hold of God’s wisdom, all the wisdom needed to solve life’s problems, if you cast your very life and future on this promise and believe with no wavering.
God gives wisdom liberally to all of his children.
