Modern culture has taught us that popularity equals success, when in fact an obedient heart is the measure of success in the Kingdom of Heaven. So many are still fooled by this notion as it has become engraved in our minds as truth. Unfortunately it leaves most with some measure of emptiness as they are double minded desiring the blessing of God while still trying to please the world. Unstable.
James writes that a double-minded man is unstable in all ways (James 1:8). In this place of instability you are more vulnerable to attack from the adversary. Babylon is translated as ‘confusion’. When we desire to please both the world (Babylon) and God it creates confusion because no servant can have two masters. In your desire for more of the Lord, ask Him to renew your mind in this area. Are you desiring Him, Babylon, or both?
