O Grant Me Wisdom From Above
The link between verses 4 and 5 is that we might lack wisdom to see life as James has described it. We get caught up in the events of life and in the chaos lack that clarity. Things happen and we just don't understand how God can work it for His glory. Paul learned to be content. This is not in us by nature but is born out of praying on our knees for wisdom. We may not understand why God brings things to pass but will know He is producing patience and perfection.
