Analysis Paralysis


“Attention everyone—all of you from out of town, all you from Jerusalem, and you King Jehoshaphat—God’s word: Don’t be afraid; don’t pay any mind to this vandal horde. This is God’s war, not yours. Tomorrow you’ll go after them; see, they’re already on their way up the slopes of Ziz; you’ll meet them at the end of the ravine near the wilderness of Jeruel. You won’t have to lift a hand in this battle; just stand firm, Judah and Jerusalem, and watch God’s saving work for you take shape. Don’t be afraid, don’t waver. March out boldly tomorrow—God is with you.” 2 Chronicles 20:15-17 Message

Imagine what would have happened if the Spirit of God had not moved on someone to speak these instructions. Imagine if they had not listened. Imagine if they had not obeyed. Yet somehow I see myself in this scenario and perhaps you can relate.

Oftentimes we hyper-anylize what we’ve heard in hopes to make sense of the instructions we’ve been given. It’s a part of how some of us are wired. The years of stepping out in ‘faith’ to do what we’ve ‘heard’ only to find ourselves in situations we can’t explain. But isn’t that what faith is?

“What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.” Hebrews 11:1 TLB

What if God had this huge plan for you to be successful. What if your success was based on trusting in what you believe God is capable of instead of what you’re capable of.  When you enlarge your view of God and trust in Him, you realize that NOTHING is impossible for Him.

Make this the day that you shake off the fear that’s keeping you paralyzed in your current situation.  That first step may feel like a free fall down a very steep cliff, but you trust that Gods hand will catch you! He said He’d never leave you and He hasn’t. He loves you so much that He won’t leave you in your current situation. Stop over-analyzing and begin to step into His divine purpose for your prosperity.
