Doubt

God wants to replace your question mark with a period (or even an exclamation point).

You probably wouldn’t think that wisdom and doubt were opposites, but they are. The opposite of wisdom is not stupidity, because wisdom has nothing to do with intelligence. It’s more about being sure that what you are doing is right, which would make the opposite of wisdom more like uncertainty, or doubt.

To have doubt is to be unsettled, like a wave driven by the wind. To be wise is to trust someone who not only has more experience than you do, but who also has your best interests in mind.

When you have doubts in your life, you can go to God for the answers. Be confident that He can handle the problem (or give you the wisdom to handle it yourself). Don’t keep fretting about the problem once you have given it to God. From that point on, be confident that He is in charge.

When you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. James 1:6
