Do you recognize the SPIRITUAL signs of doubt and unbelief in your life? This is important if you want to become an overcomer through your identity in Christ because it DILUTES your ability to JUMP INTO the deeper purpose of God for your life! Here are just a couple negative results this causes in your leadership.
- It shrinks our prayer life because wrath and doubt go hand in hand. Do you struggle with angry outbursts? Then pray for more faith and to live a purposeful life, not for more self-control. Timothy 2:8 (KJV)
- It sabotages our ability to become overcomers in all situations and to live our dreams. Mat. 21:21
- It destroys our ability to receive the confession and results from our actions. Matt. 11:23
- It causes people to lose respect for you and your leadership because you can’t be consistent with your goals and outcomes. James 1:6
Today I want to give you three ways to get free from this from a coaching perspective.
First, double-mindedness is spiritual warfare. You’re not being inconsistent, you’re not being insecure or weak-minded, it’s a spiritual attack. Double-mindedness is an assignment of fear that is attacking you. Ask God for the action you are to take to solve your problem and obey HIM. He is the one who gives you an ability through the Holy Spirit to be an overcomer and stay courageous. Die to your flesh and let God be enlarged.
Second, and this may offend you, but God will wait to deliver you until you fight for what you want. Double-mindedness is to keep you from finishing what you put your hand to now matter how small or big your goal is. Now what I have noticed is whenever I set my sights on something that God lays on my heart to pursue, the enemy comes in with tons of condemnation about how I am failing in other areas and I am not worthy to receive what I am asking because LOOK BECKY, YOU FAILED HERE, HERE AND HERE.
So, here’s where you whip out the word of God, and you use it like a sword and FIGHT! Do you want to know WHO is righteous before God? We are, with the blood. That’s all you have to do. Tell the devil over and over again, WHOO-HOO…I am made clean and whole and able by the blood of Christ. Insert this statement 45x into his day every time he reminds you that you will fail, it won’t work, God isn’t listening to your prayers, here’s another time just like the last that you failed and finally my favorite…now your going to get found out that you really don’t have it together.
This is why you pick one goal at a time and not overcommit to overcoming 12 things at once. This one thing is a big deal, or the enemy wouldn’t be haggling you over it. People consistently underestimate the power of achieving small goals sequentially. When you see the results from this, you will begin to develop an IDENTITY of an overcomer which gives you faith to do bigger and bigger things. Stop trying to slay GOLIATH before you have killed your first bear. You don’t have to hit a home run, just get on first base!
Third, it’s normal after coming out of emotionally challenging season’s to deal with double-mindedness, but once you lay your hand to the plow, you CAN’T BACK UP IF YOU WANT TO BUILD A BOLD IDENTITY! My team will tell you I don’t cut much slack on feeling overwhelmed because if you don’t learn to do work during chaotic seasons, guess what? All the enemy has to do is throw a little chaos you’re way, and he’s stopped you! You’re not a victim of your circumstances, you are WHO GOD SAYS YOU ARE!
What I see over and over again is when people realize it’s not them but it’s WARFARE because they are trying to build a bigger identity which will influence more people for the kingdom, they get free from the double-mindedness.
