Are you a flipper? I don't mean Flipper the dolphin from that TV series. I mean do you flip your mind from one thing to another? Do you change your mind frequently?.
Let me give you some examples. When Jesus entered Jerusalem in triumph the people sang and shouted "Hosanna!" A few days later the same people shouted "Crucify Him!"
Peter promised to be by Christ's side at all times. A few days later he denied knowing Him three times. And to some extent so did all the disciples who ran away in fear.
Here's another example from the Acts of the Apostles Chapter 28:1-6
"Once safely on shore, we found out that the island was called Malta. The islanders showed us unusual kindness. They built a fire and welcomed us all because it was raining and cold. Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, “This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, the goddess Justice has not allowed him to live.” But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead; but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god."
After Paul's shipwreck, the islanders first thought Paul was a criminal. then moments later they thought he was a god.
So how about us? Are we flippers who change our minds at a moment's notice? One minute we pray that we trust God and then the next we doubt that He is listening to our prayers or whether He will actually respond.
There is no point praying, "I trust you. I trust you". We should stop praying and trust Him instead.
When you were a child you did not run to your parents every few minutes shouting "I trust you". You trusted them that they have your best interests at heart. As any good parents they sacrificed a lot for you; without a reminder that you trusted them.
How much more does your Father in Heaven care for you? Without the constant reminder, (to yourself perhaps), that you trust Him!
