DO NOT BE DOUBLE-MINDED

SCRIPTURE:

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 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. (James 1:6–8)

DEVOTIONAL:

Any instability in your life is due to not believing and speaking the Word of God. To live a stable life, you are going to have to consider only what God says, no matter how bad it looks and no matter how your flesh is screaming at you. You have to stay focused on the promise and stagger not (Romans 4:20). If you stay focused on His Word, you will not be double-minded. You will stick with your belief in God’s Word and accept nothing less than what He says. And that means you will get what you say!

Abraham staggered not at the promise of God because he was fully persuaded that God was able also to perform it (Romans 4:21). That’s another key right there. Who had promised? It was God who had promised, and it was God who was going to perform it. It wasn’t up to Abraham to perform it, and it isn’t up to you or me to perform it. What we have to do is believe God’s promise, speak His promise, and let Him do the rest. He said He would, and He will. It’s a law!

You are the righteousness of God. You are more than a conqueror. He always causes you to triumph in Christ. You are saved. You are delivered. You are healed. You are rich. You are full of wisdom. Even so, you don’t have to fulfill the promise. God has said it and He will make it good.

Do not be double-minded…Believe God’s promise and receive it!

PRAYER:

Dear God, I declare that I am focused on Your promise (name what you’re believing for). I will not stagger in unbelief or be double-minded. My faith is not in myself, but in You. I believe what You’ve said in Your Word will come to pass, and I gratefully receive it. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
