Truth For Today

WITHOUT A DOUBT

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 1:6-7]

The doubting person who doesn’t believe that God can provide wisdom is like the billowing, restless sea, moving back and forth with its endless tides, never able to settle. There’s no sense in such a person supposing he will receive anything from the Lord.

When faced with a trial, an unbeliever who professes to know Christ will doubt God and get angry with Him and eventually sever his association with a church. A true Christian who is spiritually immature May respond in a similar manner because he reacts emotionally to his difficult circumstances and doesn’t fully trust God. In the midst of a trial, he will not experience a joyous attitude, an understanding mind, a submissive will, or a believing heart. He will seem unable to ask for wisdom from God and unwilling to take advantage of the resources He has provided, never knowing the resolution available to him through faithful, persistent prayer to God.
