James 1:5-8

Behold the man who wavers in his faith.  James likens him to the sea's great waves on a stormy day, driven by the wind and tossed (Jms. 1:6).  Contrast this with the stillness of those same waters on a calm summer evening.  What’s the difference?  Stability!!  Albert Barnes in commentating upon James 1:5-8, states the following: 

“The wave of the sea has no stability. It is at the mercy of every wind and seems to be driven and tossed every way. So he that comes to God with unsettled convictions and hopes, is liable to be driven about by every new feeling that may spring up in the mind. At one moment, hope and faith impel him to come to God; then the mind is at once filled with uncertainty and doubt, and the soul is agitated and restless as the ocean”. 

If you find a man who is unstable in the area of prayer and faith, you will find a man who is unstable everywhere!  The burden of this sermon is for God’s children to put away from them the double mind.  This sermon is a call to serve the Lord with singleness of mind, with wholeness of heart, in all sincerity and truth.
