Don’t Be Double-Minded

“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways” James 1:8

The biblical meaning for double mindedness is to have two spirits; to vacilate between two opinions or purposes.

When I first met my husband, he asked me out for dinner and over time a great friendship began to form. As our feelings grew stronger for each other, we began discussing marriage. However, the more we talked about marriage, I became increasingly afraid. The question that kept running through my head was, “What if he’s not the one for me?” I began to take him through a time of double minded behavior that almost ruined our relationship. One week I was all starry-eyed over him with all defenses down. The next week I was unsure and distant. This went on for months until he finally asked, “What do you want?” Thank God I made the right choice and married him. a perfect fit for me.

Double minded behavior can potentially ruin not only your relationship with people, but also your relationship with the Lord. Just like my husband wanted me to make a decision, we must serve God with a made up mind.

Prayer: Father God, I bind all double mindedness in my life. I choose You. I choose life. Help me maintain a single mind and heart. In Jesus name, Amen.
