This is a continuation of the last blog titled How To Live A Successful Life. Before you start reading and meditating scriptures. You need to have the wisdom the teacher with you.
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.Their loyalty is divied between God and the world, and they are unstable in eveything they do. James 1:5-8
