James 1:5- If any of you lacks wisdom let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
James says that if anyone lacks wisdom, let him ask God. The wisdom James is telling us is the understanding and practical skills needed to live a life glorifying God. Likewise, it is the knowledge and the ability to make wise decision in difficult circumstances. We should ask God, who is the Creator and provider of every good and perfect gift.
God uses trials in our lives to draw us near to Him. Through trials, we are shown that we cannot do anything without Him. If we seek Him more in prayer, God will give us His wisdom. When we get wisdom, then we are able to handle those trials that come and will come upon us.
We should always ask wisdom from God so that all our actions will end up pleasing and glorifying God.
