“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.”
We see here that the only requirement in addition to asking for wisdom is that we “ask in faith, nothing wavering.” We can ask for wisdom, but if we do not believe that God will give us the understanding and discernment we seek, we are certain to not receive it. To waver is to stagger between belief and unbelief. We either believe God and His promises or we don’t.
Abraham’s Unwavering Faith.
“He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.”
God had promised that Abraham would be the father of many nations, and he believed that God would keep His promise despite his old age. Abraham was not weak in his faith. He did not waver despite the circumstances. He was strong in his faith, giving God the glory while he waited for the promise to be fulfilled.
We must believe that God is not only able to give wisdom, but also to make us wise because He promised He would do so if only we would ask in faith.
Regardless of our current situation, we must believe God’s promises that He has made unto us. Seek to be an unwavering Christian. Follow God’s leading, and trust Him to carry out the plan that He has for your life.
