For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.—James 1:7-8
I think what we want is some stability, not supposeability. But there is a lot of supposeability in Christian men. We suppose God will respond to us; therefore, we are unstable in what we believe he will do. But remember, Christian faith is anchored in the person of God, not merely what we expect he will do nor what he does. Therefore our stability is based in the Lord and him alone. So when we ask him, we should not suppose he exists but know that he exists and hears, listens, and responds to us. Therefore we should ask confidently in the Lord and be not double-minded about God, regardless of how he might answer or not answer, because our faith is not in what God will do or not do for us—but in the Lord himself. That's not supposeability; that's stability.
ASK THIS: What is your confidence in God based on?
DO THIS: Be stable—have faith in the Lord.
PRAY THIS: God, turn my confidences from what you might do to who you are. Make me stable and single-minded. Cancel my duplicity of thinking.
