An Erratic Personality
There are some people who have a disposition to make sudden decisions. They can alter the plan of their lives within minutes. Such people can be with you today but can desert you tomorrow!
You will notice this trait in people who enter relationships and break suddenly. When they speak of their commitment to a cause, you will be impressed by their speech. But don’t be fooled! These people are usually gifted speakers and orators. They will change direction without any major provocation, to your surprise!
I am talking about practical things that I have seen. I have seen the most committed and ardent followers change course in midstream. Because I have seen several people do this, I am convinced that it is a character or personality trait which some people have.
“My son, fear thou the Lord and the king, and meddle not with them that are GIVEN TO CHANGE” – Proverbs 24:21
Do you have a tendency to change course suddenly after you have been extremely committed to something? I would not like to be in a relationship like that or have an assistant pastor like that! Their word is not worth anything! A Christian must be a person who makes a statement and sticks to his word no matter what it costs.
“…He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.” – Psalm 15:4
God is faithful to us even when we are NOT faithful to Him. Nothing makes Him change His mind!
God is trying to build up a breed of Christians who do not change their minds easily about the convictions they have. Thank God that Jesus did not change His mind when He came into this world and experienced such hatred and animosity from the people He loved.
The ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ is not safe in the hands of erratic leaders. Today they are ministers and tomorrow they become social activists. From religion to politician. Faith preacher to being against the faith movement!
If you have an erratic nature, decide today to be a solid and steadfast believer.
