Pastor’s Corner: Sometimes we think too much

Often times when it comes to church we are super spiritual people that do not accomplish a lot. What that means is often times we use our thoughts of spirituality to keep us from actually doing. We say things like ” when God is ready I’ll know,” or ” I’ll have what God wants me to have, in God’s time”. Statements like this give way to over thinking and allowing us to not move or produce. In some way, we believe God doesn’t want us healed, delivered, and set free. What we are really doing is not relying on God but on ourselves. We are saying we don’t believe its enough power in heaven to do it NOW. The questioning and the answering is our response to what we can’t see and our unwillingness to believe that God doesn’t need us to help fix us. So we spend countless hours designing a plan for our freedom, and all God wants us to do is believe. Hebrews 11:6 says But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that dilligently seek him. If we spend less time thinking about what we need to do and more time doing what God ask us to do, the reward for our faith will manifest sooner than later.  God is not requiring us to be great thinkers but great believers and great doers of His word. In the book of James 1:25 James says But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. I would suggest for us to think less and do more. The blessing is in the doing what we have heard. WE DON’T NEED MORE WORK, WE NEED MORE WORD.
I love you but God loves you more and he wants your life to be all he promised NOW if you will just believe and SIT YOUR MIND DOWN.

  1. Making time to read more word is challenging when you live a busy lifestyle, however, making the time to read the word is part of our growth as believers. I think “sitting your mind down” can be making time to focus on God.
