Paralysis of Analysis

Posted by appolus on July 13, 2017

Philippians 1:6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

How many of us have suffered from paralysis of analysis? We are so unsure of Gods will for our life that we cannot discern our way ahead. We are afraid that if we do not hear an audible voice or even a small still voice then we could make a mistake and if we step outside of His plan, then we face ruin and attack from an enemy just waiting to pounce. It’s hard to imagine that the Royal Priesthood could suffer such bondage from the father of lies.

The truth is, that God the Father has a plan, set in stone, for each and every one of us and He has had it since the foundations of the world, and that plan will absolutely and definitely come to pass. The real test for us as Christians is how we walk through the path set before us. We have a starting point and we have a finishing point, that is the plan and that is the path we will take. Never let Satan convince you that you are a failure and that you are of no use to God and that have blown it and your usefulness is over, this is a lie from the father of lies to torment you. Our task here on earth is to walk the path set before us in a peace that surpasses all understanding. We do not determine the path, it is determined for us, but we do determine how we walk it. Do you want to be a powerful witness, a light unto the world? Do you want to walk in power, a power that amazes the unsaved?

Do you spend a lot of your energy trying to shape your life? Do you get exhausted trying to control and manipulate events in your life? Your life is not your own. What unfolds in your life is no mere chance. The Bible tells us the steps of a righteous man and woman are ordered of God, not the enemy, not yourselves, but of God. This is what we sign onto when we come to Him. We die to ourselves, we no longer belong to ourselves, we belong to Him, body and soul.

If you belong to Him then your ship has sailed. It will arrive at its destination. It will go through calm waters, windless days and months when you seem to be going nowhere. It will go through storms and hurricanes when it seems that the boat will be swamped and perhaps founder in the rough seas. Torrential rain, blistering sun, icebergs, beautiful cloudless sunny days, you will experience them all on your journey. Your journey has a beginning and it has an end. Jesus lay asleep in the boat because He already told the disciples that He was going to the other side.

    I think a big part of the problem, for American Christians, is that our Protestant churches have become so much like the world, that its hard to tell the difference. Being accustomed and desirous of leaving Church feeling warm and fuzzy, instead of being taught solid foundational truths, leaves one feeling empty when the glow has worn off. If Christians don’t believe they are being taught and growing in maturity, which leads to a feeling of purposelessness, then they might want to reevaluate not only their Church but their own prayer life. For me, this is why I no longer attend a Church because I couldn’t find any that teach ” meat”, but rather a continual diet of milk and feel good music.
