THE PROMISE 

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

James 1:12, NLT 

 

THE TESTIMONY

Those who feel their need of higher wisdom, and do not rely upon their own finite judgment, but search earnestly to know the will of God, may draw from the source of all knowledge. 

Young men and young women will often be brought into positions where they are uncertain what to do. Their inclination leads them in one direction, and the Holy Spirit of God draws them in another direction. 

But those who desire to be true to Christ, will listen to the voice that says, “This is the way, walk ye in it.” They will decide to take the course of the righteous, although it is more difficult to pursue, more painful to follow, than the way of their own heart.  

He will remember that “even Christ pleased not himself,” and he will consider it a great privilege to follow in His steps. He will take his perplexities to God in prayer, and ask the guidance. 

Repeat over and over the promise, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him...” When tempted, fasten your faith firmly upon the promise of God, and thank him for the grace and mercy that he has so freely bestowed.

The Youth’s Instructor, September 19, 1895 

 

THE RESPONSE 

Feel the need of higher wisdom, search earnestly to know the will of God.

Repeat over and over the promise, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally.”
