Stability

posted Jan 24, 2017, 6:40 AM by Antonio Lundy
The dictionary defines stability as the state of being resistant to change and not prone to wild fluctuations in emotion.  It involves firmness of character, purpose or resolution.  Our stability lies within Christ who gave His life that we might be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12).  In the renewing of that mind, we have to be determined to take a stand against anything that seeks to make us unstable and easy to knock us off center or causes us to fall or get knocked down.  The enemy seeks to get in our mind but that is not God's desire because we know that, "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways" (James 1:8).  Other scriptures that address the subject of stability include:
2 Peter 2:14 View whole chapter Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 
 2 Peter 3:16 View whole chapter As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
