Scientists once studied a snake that had two heads. Each head had a mind of its own and wanted to control the body. One moment it would crawl one way, and then the other mind would take over and the snake would crawl in a completely different direction. The double-minded snake is a picture of a person who doubts--he can't make up his mind. One mind tells him yes, while the other mind tells him no, and he wavers between the two. Here is how doubt can affect us.
The way to stop doubt is to put a filter on your mind. An open mind is like an open window--it needs a screen on it to keep the bugs out! You must learn to discern God's voice and screen out those voices that contradict it. When you stop the negative thoughts from entering, your doubt will leave.
