Being Double Minded

 

(James 1:7-8) “For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

(1 John 3:22) “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”

(Galatians 2:20) “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

 

 

The one thing that God confirms that will stop us from receiving anything from Him is doubt. Doubt is your greatest enemy in your walk with God. Doubt in His promises, doubt in your identity as a son or daughter of God, doubt in the power inside of you through the Holy Spirit, doubt that you will be able to love unconditionally, doubt that God actually loves you, and doubt that your sins can be totally washed away through the sacrifice on the cross. Doubt, doubt, doubt.

This is evident in those that are double-minded because one day they are confident in their calling and the next they are not. They feel loved by God in the morning and rejected in the evening due to certain actions taken or words heard. They start to look at their current situation, instead of God’s promise. They start to be moved by emotions instead of duty and responsibility, and worst of all they are constantly moved by what others think of them.

If we are constantly wavering in what our goal is, on what God has instructed us to do, if our foundation for obedience to God is based on liking or not liking what we are supposed to do, then God can no longer continue to guide us. Remember, even though we received salvation by grace alone, the blessings while on earth are based on our obedience to His instructions, not on us liking or agreeing with them.

Therefore, do what you are asked to do, stick with it until the end, and don’t change your mind based on your feelings. Remember that your old personality before accepting Christ has been crucified and the new you is Christ living through you. Only then can we stay in obedience and whatsoever we ask, we will receive.

 

You represent God’s power, love, and personality through Christ, and He is not double-minded.
