When you submit to the Word of God, it absolutely straightens out your mind, and you become more spiritually correct. When you allow yourself to be spiritually corrected by the Word, then your mind can be renewed by the powerful, washing of the water of the Word. This renewal takes place within your spirit, not just your mind, and as a result, unites in faith with what God has already said. When the yielding to the Word takes place, your mind, your soul, and your spirit have become one in obedience to God, and your thinking is no longer double minded.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:8
The biggest problem, rejection brings is double minded. The spiritual root of double mindedness is insanity. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Instability impacts his thinking, his spiritual thoughts, his thoughts, and his physical existence. One day he’s up, and the next day he’s down. One day he feels loved and acknowledges he’s a son of God, and the next day he doesn’t receive love and makes decisions as if he is a second-rate son of God. Being a double minded person doesn’t develop overnight. It is a pattern and routine of behavior that you need to acknowledge. Repent and come out from double mindedness.
The Bible tells us to be single minded, having the mind of Christ. Actively engage with God and put on the mind of Christ. You need to know the very ways God thinks!
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16
When we think like the devil and his kingdom, it is in opposition to God’s thinking. So, one day we’re thinking like the devil, and the next we’re thinking like God; this is double mindedness. If one day you want to be loved, and the next day you don’t want to be loved, you’re not going to receive love. You’re going to be in torment, and you’re going to be in a world of confusion. Double-mindedness is a human weakness and it is essential to overcome this to go through life.
Be a true believer. A double minded person cannot see and adopt God’s plan. See the bigger picture. Have faith.Your sanity is contingent on you being single minded, not double minded. Don’t be the double minded person who’s unstable in all his ways. Tweet this!
