Is your mind and heart being tossed
back and forth like the waves?
James 1:6 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
There are all kinds of “voices” that give us doubts in who we are, and who the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is. The voices that can give us doubts come from our own mind, from someone else, our sins, and from our circumstances we face daily. Satan will use all the voices that is not of God to keep our doubt alive and working until we are fully pulled away from God, or wavering from one day to the next not truly having confidence in who we are, and who He is.
Our hearts and mind can become like the waves being tossed back and forth by the wind, and no true peace will our souls experience because we are not receiving God’s true voice His Spirit and Word can only give us.
The only voice we all need to heed is God’s and His alone that we can hear only through the Son, by way of His Spirit. He gives us the power within ourselves to silence all other voices, and they have no power over us! When we do ask, we must believe Him and His Words He gives us, not doubt what He is giving us, and who He is for us; our Savior, Lord and Father. He died so we could have a relationship with Him above all other voices in the world. He is the only true voice; all other voices, including our own is a lie.
We do not want to be only a hearer of His words and voice, we will be deceiving ourselves if we only go to Him to hear what He says and do not apply His teachings and instructions to our daily lives. We should live out what He says in our mind, body and heart, and His faith, hope and love will always guard our mind, body and heart everyday until He calls us home. If we hear His voice and do not do what He says we are like someone that looks in the mirror, walks away, and forgets what he looks like. We are only deceiving ourselves if we go to Him to only hear what He says.
James 1:22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the world but does not do what It says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
If you are experiencing doubt what He is giving you is true, and your mind, and heart feels like it is being tossed back and forth like the waves? Stop! Listen to God through His word of truth, and let Him bring you to shore, place you on His Rock, so your mind, and heart cannot be shaken.
He will give you your confidence, fearlessness, boldness from all He gives you of Himself, and through all He gives you in this life to prove His word, and promises is true. Do not listen to all the other voices His Spirit and Word do not proclaim. His peace will fully live in your heart everyday as you surrender daily all other voices that are not Him more and more. Anyone, any where, can begin now living out His truth He can only pour in!
