James 1:7-8 (NET)
For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord, since he is a double-minded individual, unstable in all his ways.

Biodun observed that he would be full of faith in one moment, but would be totally faithless in the next. Just like the waves of the sea that rises and falls, his faith in God rose and fell because he was still controlled by his flesh, even though he was sometimes controlled by the Spirit. He found out that his weakness was coming from his unequal yoke with unbelievers.

Faith is spiritual, but unbelief is fleshly. Whenever you are dominated by the Spirit, you will walk by faith. But if you fall back to the flesh, you will walk by sight and not by faith.

The problem with a double-minded person is that this state of heart affects every area of his life. He would behave like Christ today but would act like an unbeliever tomorrow.
Because the righteousness of God is revealed by faith (Rom 1:17), if a person's faith is unstable, he would constantly swing from walking in righteousness to walking in the flesh. He may have to resort to legalism in order to keep the outward show of righteousness, and may find it more convenient to stay in legalism that produces inferior human [born] righteousness that counts as filthy rags before God.

In the spirit realm, man's clothing is righteousness (Isaiah 60:10). He is either clothed in the glorious garment of God's righteousness or clothed in the filthy garment of iniquity or his own righteousness. No one appears before God and receives from Him wearing filthy rags. He must first receive a change of garment (see Zech 3:3-5) and keep it on by faith.

Go into today remembering that continuing in believing is the way to receive from God. One way unbelief enters is when we are unequally yoked together with unbelievers (2 Cor 6:14).

Prayer: Lord, please break every limiting yoke of unbelief in my life. Amen.
