The Teenage years are very tough years. i believe they have a genuine desire to live in harmony with their parents, as well as please their friends.
The Term double minded literally means two minds, or two souls. The Soul of man is the thoughts, emotions, and will. What we think affects how we feel; how we feel affects our actions. Double mindedness leads to an unstable life
James 1:8, “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
The unstable life is exhibited in the defiance, rebellion, cutting, self-harm, attempted suicide, anger, bitterness, frustration, et. al.
GOOD NEWS! THERE IS DELIVERANCE FROM DOUBLE MINDEDNESS!
James 4:6, “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”
There is no improvement over the God’s Word.
YES, GOD’S WORD TRULY CHANGES LIVES!
