Do you find yourself always flip-flopping when it comes to your health and weight releasing journey. This week you’re doing keto. The next week you’re cutting out your meats. This week you’re on a liquid protein smoothie diet. And next week you’re fasting the next weekend your intermittent fasting next week your one meal a day you get the point.
And today I want to talk to you about what the Bible calls double-mindedness. What I sometimes call just indecision, and there’s a scripture reference that I want to share with you. It is in James and it says, What let him ask in faith, without doubting for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea. That person should not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord. He is double minded and unstable in all his ways and this scripture is, of course talking about faith.
But that’s what we’re talking about is faith in your health journey;To trust that what you believe you heard God say, you’re going to stick to it without doubting without saying, “Did God really say that?” “Let me try this instead, my girlfriend said this one’s bringing better results.” “Let me jump to that instead.”
If you believe that the Lord has led you to eat a certain type of way, or to let go of certain foods to do certain things related to your health, then do it! Do it is a simple message. But the James is so convincing and convicting that person should not believe that he would receive anything from God.
If you believe that God has called you to do something, do it without jumping –stick to it. You’re not going to see the results in a few weeks or in some cases, not even a few months. That’s why we’ve got to stick to things without flip flopping and jumping to the next thing. In working with women for the last 35 plus years. The main reasons why we flip flop is because we don’t have confidence in ourselves that we can do. What we believe we heard the Lord say we can do and we’re not clear on just to get there.
Sometimes we’re just not committed. We want it but we’re not willing to do what it takes to get there. And so these things cause double-mindedness because we want them but we don’t believe we can do it. We’re not clear on how to do it. And we’re not really committed to doing it.
So if you struggle with one of those, the answer is always simple but always easy to carry out. Trust God. What did he tell you to do? Do that leave everything else aside. Keep on going; keep waking up every day, keep putting one foot in front of the other, without constantly jumping and flipping from program to program. You’re never going to get progress. You’re never going to gain any traction if you keep jumping. And so be resolute if you believe God has called you in this season. To release weight. Stay here. Commit to doing one program not not five, not six, not the latest thing that came on your feed, but commit to doing the one thing that you know to do.
It might not be a big thing, but commit to doing that one thing and as you do that one thing ,watch, you take that step in faith, watch how God shows up, and we’ll show you the next thing. Sometimes the next thing might be, “that wasn’t right go this way.” But you’re never going to know until you step out and you do that thing.
And you assess the results of that thing, spend time in prayer and hear if the Lord is leading you in another direction or to keep on going.
Amen. So let go of that double mindedness trust God, keep surrendering to Him.
Keep taking it one day at a time.
God bless you
