I Got Everything I need... or Wait For it ....part 2
James teaches that the person that continuously allows themselves to doubt God and be in disharmony with what He has already revealed to them, then they are like people in a dinky boat floating on the waves of the turbulent sea being thrown around like a basketball on a good passing team. Its like WE are being handled by the trials and tossed by every passing thought like a basket ball on a great passing team.
The Bible teaches that a person like this is NOT to expect anything from the LORD….
Instead of waiting for it don’t wait… nothing is coming for you…You in you wavering double minded self will not receive anything.
In fact you will be unstable in all your ways…marriage, relationships, career, school, business and ministry. You my friend will be unstable in everything; because all these things are affected by a wavering mind. James closes that section with a Maxim: “A double minded man is unstable in all is ways”
a δίψυχος dipsychos dē'-psü-khos 1) double minded (Two Souled)
a) wavering, uncertain, doubting
b) divided in interest ( he is like the lover who loves his or her spouse yet has allowed their mind to get caught up “in love with” an interloper some outsider then their mind is all confused and the person actually become unstable in all their ways.
