Neil,

Are you referring to James 1:8? If so, it says "A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways."

Double-minded can also be translated double-psyche. What this is telling me is that I can ask the Lord for wisdom (James 1:5), but I have to understand that wisdom is gained through enduring trials by faith. And so when he says if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask from God, we have to be careful. If I say "I would really like to have God's wisdom," okay, but I'm going to have to go through a lot of trials.

My personal definition of wisdom, and it's the word Sophos by the way, but my personal definition that actually summarizes its application in the New Testament is that wisdom is seeing life as God sees life. It's like looking through His eyes!

1 Corinthians 2:16 plays a big role in this, that we have been given the mind of Christ. The word mind is the word Nous, which means perceptive. By His Spirit, we can perceive God and His working in our circumstances. That's wisdom, seeing life as God sees life. Now how am I going to do that? By experiencing Him, and by enduring and totally trusting the Lord Jesus Christ!

So I can ask the Lord for wisdom and then freak out as soon as He starts putting me in tough circumstances. My emotions would be flying all over the place. I'd be calling all my friends asking what I should do. It could lead to panic and anxiety.

We have to understand that we ask and we enter into trials in order to endure through them by trusting the Lord. But we have problems with that sometimes. It's like I know I should be trusting the Lord and I know what the bible says, but look what I'm going through, and it's a big mess. That is an unstable person, a double-minded man, that can't be ready to ask for wisdom. They've got to learn to endure their trials first.
