If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

– James 1:5-6 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

This is a promise that every believer in Jesus Christ can boldly claim. When we face situations that are beyond our understanding, there is a life line: God will give wisdom to those who realize their plight. Notice that first we must come to grips that we lack wisdom, then heavenly knowledge will open up. It may come through the Scripture, a “random” phone call, or a variety of ways, but when it comes we must not doubt God’s answer. He has promised to give it, but we need to receive God’s wisdom as boldly as we ask for it.
