If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 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 1:5-8
Good Morning Beautiful,
“Don’t throw all your eggs in one basket” –Sounds familiar? I hope it does because today’s scripture points to all the reasons as to why we can’t be double-minded or wavering. We can not continue in life, jumping from one thing to another. At some point, we have to choose between God and this world.
When we keep our options open, we tell God that we don’t trust Him; This is the enemy’s way of keeping us in a cycle when we waver in this way. When we fluctuate, we are showing our true selves by revealing OUR instability. We are showing that we can not be under Divine control. God is not about the confusion, but the enemy is. Sometimes we have to have the radical faith in that we choose to follow Christ, not knowing what will happen—just trusting that God’s plan is better than ours. This takes trust and faith!
The God that I serve is not a God who will turn us away from asking questions. He encourages it because He wants to be our helper. So, go to God this morning and ask for wisdom and knowledge pertaining to your situation. Ask the Lord to show you the ways that you lack in trust and to reveal your heart. Sometimes it causes us to be dangerous in our prayers and ask God to search us. We have to be in a place to see our hearts and to see the sin that lives in it. God wants us to say “Yes” to Him and to trust Him with our “Yes.”
Learn today and every day to choose God because there isn’t a day that goes by where God doesn’t want us. He loves us! And maybe the answer you have been looking for is God merely waiting for us to go all in and decide to give Him everything that we have.
God is the basket that you want to throw all of your eggs in!!!!
