If we are really Christians, it is because we have believed in Jesus Christ, and this belief implies that we have done it without seeing that person in whom we believe, and this is not a fictitious faith, nor is a faith that hides behind something that does not produces experiences, we experience our faith, in the sense that we ask God and we see His powerful hand at work in our lives and we must ask God to keep this faith and never doubt Him.
5 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.
6 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.
7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
The first thing we must understand is that we have to ask for it under the will of God, since God will not give us anything that is not under His will, nothing that will harm us, God wants the good for us and not the bad, and another thing is that the blessings of God do not add sadness, the blessings of God are enjoyed.
In the second place, we can not go to God doubting, because the one who approaches Him must approach believing that they will find Him and that God will answer them, because the one who touches will be opened, the one who calls will be answered. So it does not matter how difficult it is for you to ask God, it does not matter at the crossroads you are in, it does not matter that the pain is so hard that you feel you can not get up, none of this matters if you trust the powerful hand of our Creator.
Without faith it is impossible to please God and it is necessary that everything we ask is under His will and without hesitation.
ASK WITHOUT HESITATION
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 1:6)
I believe the Holy Spirit guides us to understand God’s Word, but sometimes it seem as if our reading was fruitless, I am absent-minded and I find this is due to the fact I have not prayed to the Lord asking fervently he may help me to have fellowship with him.
On some occasions my mind is heavy with this world’s things, I feel worried about family problems or I am overexcited about something I’ve got, as tells Luke 14:19
“And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them:… “
I think that when we have our daily reading of Scripture it is necessary to try hard to look for the Lord, so we must pray to the Lord before expecting him to work in us.
When we are going through a trial, it is the best occasion to look closer to the Lord. Someone would say it’s easy for one to speak about these matters if you are not passing through a test. Well, that may be, but I can say that some time ago I was desperate and suffering in my trouble until the Lord Jesus made me humble myself, I prayed to him fervently several times, everywhere. His answer did not delay. I could see clearly and received comfort in my soul; afterwards, I accepted what the Lord had decided for me.
In trouble, it is good for us pray fervently to the Lord believing he listens to us in our needs… and be grateful.
“Now to him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK
according to the power that works in us, TO HIM BE GLORY IN THE CHURCH BY CHRIST JESUS throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)
I really needed what you wrote. I have been going through one season after another trials and temptation. I have been praying asking for our Lord to help me to understand THE WORD I understand a lot of the word but I believe that The Holy Spirit spoke through you for me. I Praise God for this. Have a blessed day.
I was good attendance in church service sometimes in between two years now I find it so difficult to fellowship in church but I do pray sometime at home with my family, please how can I bring back my faith by worshiping God also in church? Thanks I need a guard line🙏
It is some difficult for me to point out a Church where you meet with other brothers of Christian Church.
May be you find out on Internet some Local Church near to district you are staying in your city.
Meanwhile, Commentaries inserted on this biblical page could help you to think or refresh your memory in the knowledge of Bible, or perhaps to learn more about it.
I greet you cordially in the name of Jesus Christ.
The Lord said in Jeremiah 32:27 I am the God of all flesh,is there anything to hard for me.Prayer must be followed by an absolute trust ,that God is working the answer!
This is all right!
Who can say anything against Lord God. He is the Sovereign God.
His Will shall be accomplished.
The problem is in us, in general we have lack of faith.
