Scripture of the Day - May 30, 2012

James 5:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

Faith in God is the stabilizer of life. Paul urged us to "be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried away with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive."
James compares a person without faith as a wave of the sea driven by the wind. A wave can't stay in one place... it surges forward and recedes back, it rises and falls; and foaming, it surges wildly onto the shore. If the wind is strong enough the waves can cause great damage.
What a vivid description of a doubting soul. Rushing forward on impulse then receding back when they don't see results. They are up they are down. They surge wildly, crashing on the rocky shores of life only to sink in the undertow of that very same life. Oh yes, a double minded man is unstable in ALL his ways. James 1:8 driven and tossed.

Folks, we need to be anchored to the Rock of Ages. We need to stabilize ourselves in Jesus. We need to trust Him and have faith in Him. Only then can we stand against the storms of life and not be tossed about.
