Answer

Some things are so simple…that it makes them hard.

I see it all the time.  People walking around saying:  “What should I do?”

“I don’t know what to do?”

“I’m stuck.”

All of this…believe it or not…is not faith.  Sorry, but it’s true.  When you do not have the answer that you need…the bible gives so much instruction.

Here’s a great answer that I often use in James 1: 5-7

5If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of [a]the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.

6Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind.

7For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord,

See what it say.  It says:   A-S-K!!

Ask who?

Your girlfriend?   No.

Your doctor?  No.

Your mother?  No.

Your neighbor?  No.

Your husband or your wife?  No.

The Mailman?  No.

The list goes on…

But, it says Ask God.   It says God will give you the answer but it has a second part to it…yiu have to ask in faith.  You must believe that God definitely has the answer and that only He has it and will get it to you in the allotted time.

So you see…your answer is in your faith.  How’s your faith doing?
