Daily Devotion: Internal Conflict
Bible Reading: James 1:1-8
Key Verse: Verse 8 - "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."
Key Words: A double minded man is unstable in all his ways
It’s one thing to have conflict with others but internal conflict can be pure torture.
I, on occasion, will tell people in regard to decisions: make sure your heart is clean (James 4:8), ask God for wisdom, seek God’s will through His Word…then make a decision, live with it and learn from it for the double-minded person accomplishes very little.
A farmer hired a man to work for him. He told him his first task would be to paint the barn and said it should take him about three days to complete. But the hired man was finished in one day. The farmer set him to cutting wood, telling him it would require about 4 days. The hired man finished in a day and a half, to the farmer’s amazement. The next task was to sort out a large pile of potatoes. He was to arrange them into three piles: seed potatoes, food for the hogs, and potatoes that were good enough to sell. The farmer said it was a small job and shouldn’t take long at all. At the end of the day the farmer came back and found the hired man had barely started. “What’s the matter here” the farmer asked. “I can work hard but I can’t make decisions!” replied the hired man.
Oh, the woes of being double-minded and the internal conflict it causes!
What to do:
✞ Take time to pray and meditate but when it’s time to make a decision, make it and move on.
