Double-minded

double-mindedHave you ever dealt with someone who changes their mind constantly. Well I have and it used to drive me crazy. But since I’ve turned over this “new leaf” I am no longer going to let it get to me. It’s kind of obvious that the only reason someone vacillates on a daily, sometimes hourly basis, is that they are uncertain.

In the past I had let the persons uncertainty affect me, but no more. Each person must come to their own conclusions about a thing. I have already come to mine. I believe I have heard from God. I’m not doubtful and I’m not wavering. I am just going to have to see some things through to the end.

As for the person who is doubting, they will have to spend time with God and come to their own conclusions themselves. Time will tell what the end will be.

I have really turned a corner in my faith. I asked the Lord why and He told me that as long as I would not fully embrace what he has said, it was making me miserable. But now that I have recommitted myself to the vision of God, I have joy. The truth is doubt makes you miserable.

Are you double-minded or doubtful? The Word of God has the answer:

James 1:2-7

Amplified Bible (AMP)

Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations.

Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience.

But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing.

If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of [a]the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.

Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind.

For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord,
