I remember the first time I overheard a person say that I was flighty. I was just a child at the time, but I trusted that person completely so therefore their assessment of me must be true. I’m sure the comment wasn’t meant to grip my life and was perhaps only said in passing. But I believed their testimony more than I believed anything else. The result was that I no longer trusted myself to make decisions or to be competent and powerful. It was the beginning of the double-mindedness that held my life in its grip for decades. The doubt in myself caused me to be unable to give myself wholly to a decision or even to God, for what could be trusted? How could I, this flighty and flawed person, even be devoted and loyal to any decision or God if I was not steadfast and solid? Every decision was a flip-flopping ordeal as part of my heart was loyal to God and part to my fears, insecurities or worries.
As God taught me more about His steadfast character, I decided it was time to see what would happen if I repented of all the things that pulled me away from trusting Him. I began to build my life on the stability of God’s character and ways. He helped me get over the fear of man. I had to learn to break free from the ideals that people held and walk in the word of God and the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Only Jesus’ opinion began to matter. My life began to take on fresh boldness and courage with each step I took in lining up my life with what the Holy Spirit was saying. He provided all the finances to do His work with a Heavenly abundance. I felt the smile of my Father get wider and wider with every “yes”.
He began to touch on other areas like faith and forgiveness. He taught me that I could not receive His faithful and loving forgiveness, then be unfaithful in giving it away to others. My heart had to be undivided in this area and whole because my faith in Him and His promises worked through love. My faith and fresh courage would work best when I walked in harmony with Him.
Bit by bit, peace began to fill my soul and life. Miraculously, I went from being double-minded to single-minded in about 2 ½ years. I barely recognize myself or my life.
With an undivided heart, He established my life and ended my double-mindedness. Flip flopping on decisions became a thing of the past and confidence replaced confusion.
I was fruitless in my endeavors for decades but at the culmination of this book, and processing these beautiful lessons with the Lord, I have opened my own online anti-trafficking missions school, written a book, preached and seen people saved, healed and delivered. I have hosted my first powerful event which gathered people from over 20 communities as they pursued God for revival. I have also done almost $100,000 in ministry work as well as the admin to support that work in 9 months. I have been to Africa with one of God’s most influential evangelists, Daniel Kolenda and encouraged new preachers by sharing my pulpits. In all these things, I have had to fight cowardice, the fear of man, doubt, the idols of money, status and other things. I have learned to believe with a fidelity, obedience, and sell myself out for God. I have learned to go to the maypoles even if it’s all by myself. I’ve learned to keep my words in check and suit up to fight the battles of doubt and unbelief. I have learned, above all else, that His love and character is the foundation of my peace and stability and will never be taken from me.
As I committed myself to Jesus, I discovered that He trusted me with assignments for my life and for the world and that He was even more committed to me than I was to Him. God mentored and discipled me out of other loyalties, loves and the fears that were holding me back from Him and from being my best me for the world. He championed me through by His power and His Holy Spirit to bring me to the place where I can champion others. I’ve gone from double-minded to single minded and from flighty to fearless and free.
These have been the best few years of my life and the whole world is at my feet ready for me to take even more radical steps of faith and obedience. With Jesus in my heart and His character as my firm foundation, I will have the steadfastness of His faithfulness beneath the soles of my feet as solid ground beneath each step. The world He died to save awaits my next “yes”. The world Jesus died to save also awaits your next “yes”. So, enter His rest and the finished works He has ordained for you.
