TOPIC: DON’T BE DOUBLE-MINDED

Memory Verse: James 1:8 – A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Bible Reading: Isaiah 29:13-16 (WEB)

13 The Lord said, “Because this people draws near with their mouth and honors me with their lips, but they have removed their heart far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment of men which has been taught;

14 therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men will perish, and the understanding of their prudent men will be hidden.”

15 Woe to those who deeply hide their counsel from Yahweh, and whose deeds are in the dark, and who say, “Who sees us?” and “Who knows us?”

16 You turn things upside down! Should the potter be thought to be like clay; that the thing made should say about him who made it, “He didn’t make me;” or the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding?”

Today’s Open Heaven 20 November 2023

To be double-minded is to be a hypocrite – one minute, you act a certain way and the next, you are someone else.

You say something here and something contrary elsewhere. That is double-mindedness and a sign of an impure heart, according to James 4:8: “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.” Matthew 5:8 says only the pure in heart will see God, so double-minded people will not make it to heaven.

To be pure means to be of a single content. When people talk about pure cotton or pure wool, it means it does not contain any other kind of material.

Purity, therefore, implies singleness of mind and purpose. One of the reasons I love dogs is that you can tell when they’re happy or angry.

They have no pretense at all. Unfortunately, when it comes to human beings, they can smile at you and yet plan to kill you.

To be pure means no pretense (James 5:12). That is when your ‘yes’ is ‘yes’, and your ‘no’ means ‘no’. If you stand for something, stand for it all the way.

In Luke 9:59-62, Jesus Christ gave us an illustration of this when He said the moment you have placed your hand on the plough, there must be no looking back.

In Luke 16:13, He puts it another way: “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.

Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” If you are serving one master today and serving another tomorrow, you are double-minded.

Choose who your master is and stand by him all the way. If you want to serve God, then don’t serve money,

or visit a witch doctor in secret; serve God and God alone. As for me, I am serving the Lord Jesus Christ and I am going with only Him all the way.

I tell you again brethren, whatever God does not do for you, no one else can do it.

Many of us have not been getting full benefits from the Lord Jesus Christ simply because we are double-minded.

James 1:6-8 says the double-minded should not even expect to get anything from God. Don’t be double-minded.
