Helen's Message for today
We have all met the kind of person that can’t make up their mind. One minute they say they are going to do something and the next minute they change their mind. They do it so often that eventually you don’t even ask them anything because you know they can’t make a decision and live with it.
In the book of James, chapter 1 Jesus’ own half-brother, James, talks about faith. He tells us if we lack wisdom, we are to ask God for it, but also believe that God will give it to us. He goes on to say that we are not to waver because when we do, we are like a wave in the sea driven by the wind and are tossed in every direction. He then says in verse 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.”
Did you get that? He is unstable in all his ways. Not just in asking for wisdom, but in ALL his ways. Everything he does is unstable because he can never make a decision and live with it. So many people are like this. They ask God for something through prayer and when it doesn’t happen immediately, they decide in themselves that God didn’t want them to have what they prayed for. It might be healing, or a call to ministry, or whom to marry or a multitude of other things, but indecisiveness means that there was no faith in their prayer. They were doubleminded.
If this describes yourself or someone you know, then the only thing you can do about it is to repent and change. You must find the promises that God has for you through reading the Word of God that He gives for every situation and believe they are for you and they are for you today. Then you fight the fight of faith through not doubting and keep believing until you receive.
Satan will try to steal the word from you, but you must use the Word of God as your offense and tell him “no.” Don’t be the one that is double-minded. It will lead to instability in everything you do. Make a decision after prayer and live with it.
You can change if you are double-minded! You are transformed by the renewing of your mind through studying the Word of God!
