A double minded believer in Christ will attract double minded friends. A double minded leader in Christ will attract double minded supporters that will invest in their leadership and trap them into living a double minded lifestyle. When we seek God’s kingdom and righteousness first the love of Christ becomes our consuming desire that will transform our waywardness which is another way of saying double-mindedness. We are purposed to be one as our Lord God is one because a double-minded person is unstable in ALL their ways! (James 1:2-8)
Don’t give into the gossip. Don’t give into the self-righteousness. Don’t give into the contention. Don’t give into the offense. Instead give into the single-mindedness of Christ that exudes the perfect love of God and let go of any idle time that invites in that deceitful and wicked thoughts, word, emotions behavior and broken relationships . When we learn to invest our time and get about our father’s business to learn how He has called us to the earth to fulfill His heavenly assignment, then like Jesus in Luke 2:49; we will increase in wisdom, position and favor with God and man. Idle time is the devil’s playground and His playground is the human, fleshly, carnal mind. A single-minded believer in Christ pursues their healing all day every day by understanding what it means in their life to truly walk by faith.
You may ask how do I get busy about God’s business? Where do I begin? Like Jesus God’s business starts with renewing our minds with God’s higher and heavenly thoughts that comes when we spend time in the presence of His living word day and night so we will be like trees planted by the rivers of water and whatever we do will prosper (Psalms 1:1-3). Don’t settle for the devil’s playground when Jesus is working to prepare a place for you and I in His Father’s house (John 14:1-6). It is coming a time that the Father’s house will be the only house managing the earth as it is in heaven. Don’t miss what and who God has for you because you want to be in the “religious in crowd” that is keeping you from your heavenly reward which is the mind of Christ, our Redeemer of eternal life, that is our heavenly inheritance.
The promise land is not the husband, wife, friend, car, job or house. The promise land is the mind of Christ who is our gift of eternal life. Us understanding His mind will add all things to us to include a single-minded wife, single-minded husband, single- minded friends with the power, love and sound mind to receive the added things of blessed relationships, a job, car and a home or anything else we may desire in His will. These things are added to us because we are in agreement with the mind of Christ. Anything and anyone we go after before the kingdom of God and His righteousness will trap us in a double-minded lifestyle that separates us from the heavenly reward of God’s blessed presence who gives us our power, love and sound mind that will attract the single-minded relationships and opportunities to us with the assignment to protect our heart with all diligence from the issues of life.
If this blog post is speaking to you or making you uncomfortable come out of the “religious in crowd” of double-mindedness and pursue your healing, heavenly reward and heavenly inheritance. God is cleaning house as He hires those in agreement with His will and fires those who are lukewarm (double-minded). Revelations 3:15-17 tells us:
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—
Our value and self-worth is not in how people perceive or desire us outside of the mind of Christ. Our value is placed in how Christ has called us and redeemed us. Now is the time to get about your father’s business because His business is the only business where we will reap total life wellness and riches without regret. What good is it for us to gain the world and loose our soul. You may think this post is by a “holy roller”. I will give you that but if I am a “holy roller” then I am stunting like my daddy and that is how we in the kingdom of God roll! Every believer in Christ that has the ear to hear and the heart to receive this one is for you and me! For those of you who maybe thinking ” Bye Felicia” or think I am doing the most, my prayer and belief is that as long as you are living I am believing that God will continue to work His perfect work in you until the day of Christ like He has for me. That is why I am confident there is hope for you because He has done it and continues to do it for me.
Contrary to popular belief it takes all of this and a bag of our favorite chips. My favorite chips is Salt and Vinegar potatoe chips. lol! I would love to stand with you in prayer and life to help you overcome your challenges like I have learned to overcome mine. Please know this post is rooted in love and the desire to see us live the life God has purposed us to live. A double minded believer in Christ is a person who has been blinded by lust and pride because they are searching for love in wrong places. A single-minded believer in Christ is a person who has been healed by the blessed presence of God doing a perfect work of grace and truth in them. His blessed presence becomes a lamp to their feet and a light to their path (Psalms 119:105).
Being single-mindedness or holy is not about being perfect in our own strength. Single-mindedness is about agreeing with what God reveals to us so we can fulfill His will on earth as it is in heaven. If the devil can’t get at us directly he will hide behind those closes to us who still have a double-mindset within our sphere or influence. This double mindset is the result of living with one foot in the kingdom of God and one foot in the kingdoms of this world. A single-minded believer in Christ pursues their healing all day every day by learning what it means in their life to truly walk by faith.
Be encouraged that God has not forgotten about you so do not give up the fight! Like Brian Courtney Wilson says, our life in Christ is worth fighting for! Know that you are not alone. I am along with people you know or may not know are in this fight with you to enter the rest of God, which is the blessed presence of God covering our minds, spirits, souls and bodies.
