James 1:6-8
6. 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.
7. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
8. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Is BUT! the problem in our asking of God? In verse five we talked about asking God for wisdom. Are we robbing ourselves with BUT!?

Vs 6. "But let him ask in faith." What? Faith? nothing wavering. Are we asking in faith? or are we asking in wavering? Lets turn it around a bit. Are we not prone to do it this way? IE,(but let him ask in wavering nothing by faith) Is this not what Satan would ask of us? This is how we as Christians are not receiving things of the Lord.

Vs 6.(cont) "For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed."
Oh how Satan loves to toss us about and to go every way instead of the way we should! go. Satan wants us to be foolish instead of wise. This is how he can try to destroy us.

Vs 7. "For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord." Oh Christian, we are not going to receive anything from the Lord without faith. we are not going to receive anything from the Lord if we are being tossed every way like the sea with the wind tossing us about.
What is the result of this?

Vs 8. "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways" By not having faith and being tossed about; or sometimes having faith and sometimes not, we are going to be unstable in our walk with Him.
Where is our asking today? Is it in FAITH! or WAVERING!?

Encouragement for today is? Which BUT are we? Let us have the BUT of Faith.
