James 1:5–8 (NLT)
5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.
7 Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
8 Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.
I need your wisdom Lord, & I know you will give it. I trust you Lord. I need your wisdom and I need your perseverance, your endurance. I know that I can’t know exactly where I’m going, I have to walk by faith & not by sight. I just need your assurance that I’m in your will, that I’m making your decisions.
My faith is in you alone, wholeheartedly. Help me not waver or have divided desires. My desire is for your will alone. I thank you for the steadfastness you’ve given me Lord, but I need it more, I need your peace and your assurance. My loyalty is to you alone, this world has nothing for me. I will trust you with all my heart, I will not depend on my own understanding, help me to seek you every day, for every move, and as I seek you for every decision, I will trust you to be setting my path before me, doing with me exactly as you will. And I will be happy there. For your Name’s sake, amen.
