Hey Ladies,
 
Real faith is unmovable.  It is certain.   The bible says that faith comes from hearing, and hearing comes from the word of God!  (Romans 10:17).  If you have a word from God, it should produce faith.  A word that isn't from God may produce doubt, it will be unstable, and lead to double-mindedness.  If a word that is from God, and you doubt, it can also lead to double-mindedness. 
 
 
James 1:6-8
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.  For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lordhe is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
 
We know what a wave is like.  Waves are restless.  One day (or second) they are in one state, the next day they are in another state.  The double minded man is the same way.  He is unstable!  And look at verse 7, he will not receive anything from the Lord.Shocked
 
Psalm 125:1
They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever
 
Those that trust the Lord, have the kind of faith that cannot be removed.  Unlike the waves, the mountains can not be removed.  So, if you find yourself, contantly 'to and fro' and doubting, you must consider two possibilities concerning your faith:
 
1.  That the word is not from God
2.  That you have not received the word that you have heard
 
I could go deeper into #2, because we know that the enemy is apt to uproot the seed and steal the word from men's hearts.  But in regard to #1 , I do know that when a word is from God, you know!  And you are unmovable.  If there is a doubt that's pulling on you, first try to trust and receive it.  And if you still don't trust, consider that it may not be instruction from God.  The spirit of God will not let you be at peace with a word that is not from God.  The bible says that the spirit will guide you into all truth (John 16:13).  If you believe your own words, this is an active form of self deception. 
 
***
The double-minded man also pertains to those that know of Christ but won''t subscribe to the lifestyle.  That man will be unstable in all his ways as well.  I don't know anyone who is living any kind of way and has a stable life.  I haven't met one yet.  So if your life is unstable, draw nigh unto God. 
 
James 4:8
Draw nigh unto God, and he will draw nigh unto you. (that means we draw to God first.).  Cleans your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye doubleminded.

Thank you so much for this post, Sidney!  I'm bookmarking this Topic so I can read it over and over and over ...

These words are so true.  When I follow "my own word", my life is unstable ... When I follow God's word, everything falls into place.

Amen.

Amen, this is the truth!  We won't have stability without God because we weren't created to live without Him.
