Wesley's Notes for James 1:6

1:6 But let him ask in faith - A firm confidence in God. St. James also both begins and ends with faith, #James 5:15|; the hinderances of which he removes in the middle part of his epistle. He that doubteth is like a wave of the sea - Yea, such are all who have not asked and obtained wisdom. Driven with the wind - From without. And tossed - From within, by his own unstableness.

Discussion for James 1:6

  • Olabode on James 1:6
    According to how the bible defines faith: is the substance of things hope for and evidence of things not seen Heb 11:1. It is certain that without faith nobody can please God. So whatever we ask God in faith without doubt in our hearts,God will surely do it for us.
  • Shay on James 1:6
    When praying to Jehovah God we do not want to lack faith in Him. Lack of faith shows that one does not recognize or appreciate God 's fine qualities of generosity and loving kindness.
  • MockingBird on James 1:6
    I must ask in faith I cannot be wishie washie about asking God for a thing. I must be determined to receive what God says a lot of the times what God says is contrary to my thinking so I must be willing to accept what He says and go with it. God will back me with His word all the time. I cannot ask for anything better than that !!!!!

    Read Hebrew chapter 11 verses 1 to 30, Faith is a no ending hope to come true.
  • S Persad on James 1:6
    If you have faith in god, then there is no need for proof.
  • Craig Cotton on James 1:6
    I have complete 100% confidence in the word of God and especially James, the entire chapter. We know that God honors faith, especially the faith of a child and since He is our heavenly Father, not like our earthly fathers who one time or another broke promises made to us. My wife has dementia and modern medicine tells you that there is no cure.I know without a doubt in my heart that God will heal her because He said He would in James 5, verses 14 & 15 and many other places in the Bible.This is His will, His revealed will that she be healed and with his grace and patience IT WILL HAPPEN. God cannot lie! Let's not look at what the world says about healing, that there is no cures for our disease. Jesus is above man, Satan and our own doubts. Don't listen to what the world says....Jesus is the author and perfector of our faith....Trust in Him.
  • Tassel Daley on James 1:6
    This is necessary for answered prayers. Fear and doubt cast out faith.
  • RAJENDRA PILLAY on James 1:6
    jesus came in this world to save us to clean our sins, so dont bring yourself into the sinful nature, be arightous person in the sight of the lord and then your prayers will be answered and you are not going to drift but will be anchored through the help of the lord do not doubt but depend on the lord GOD BLESS EVERY BODY
