Knowledge of Wisdom

One of the most familiar scriptures in the New Testament is where James in chapter one says, if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God. The simplicity of this statement is striking and seems fundamental. However, the kind of supernatural wisdom spoken of here is the same kind Daniel was given, for example, to interpret the kingís dream. Did you know this kind of insight is part of the gifts of the spirit brought to light in the book of Hebrews? We have a tendency to think of wisdom on an earthly plain and donít fully understand that the ability to see things in a spiritual way is part of what the Lord intends we Christians do as we walk out our faith.

James continues in verse six to explain whatís required to obtain such wisdom ďBut let him ask in faith, with no doubting.Ē Are you in doubt friend? Do you doubt that Christ died and rose again to pay for your sin? Do you doubt when you pray for the healing of those who are afflicted with sickness? Do you doubt when you ask the Lord to intervene in your circumstance? You may ask, how can I be anything but what I am at that moment in my faith? And if thatís not good enough to bear fruit, then what am I to do? Many of us Christians give ourselves too many excuses when it comes applying our faith to our lives.

Like anything else, faith is simply a spiritual muscle either strong or weak depending on its use. We may shy away from using it because we donít want to be disappointed in God when we think He hasnít answered our prayers. We may somehow feel it diminishes Him in our sight and actually destroys our faith. But true faith in God does not falter. It cannot be tested by mere human reasoning or physical evidence because it exists on a more mature spiritual plain. The only answer to greater faith is increased fellowship with the Savior.
