We Have to Ask
"It must be faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting." James 1:6

If we read the New Testament book of James, we will see that James opens by telling us how to handle life’s problems and trials. There is a natural way of dealing with these things, but there is also a spiritual way to handle them. In James 1:5-6, James basically says, "If you are having trouble, ask God what you should do." You may not hear His voice and receive an answer immediately, but if you ask in faith, you will find as you go about your business a wisdom operating through you that is divine and beyond your natural knowledge.

In Psalm 23:2, the psalmist says that God leads His people into green pastures and beside still and restful waters. In other words, God will always lead us to a place of peace and safety if we seek Him. Look back at today's verse and notice that we have to ask in faith. All to often we do not receive help because we do not ask for it. The Holy Spirit is a gentleman; He waits until we invite him into our situations. We cannot assume and presume; we have to ask!

God's word for you today: When you need something, ask God for it.
