Stop analyzing, start acting. People say that too much analysis leads to paralysis. Just thinking about something and doing nothing results in nothing. You need to put in the work/action to get the result.
Something beautiful happened on Sunday. Our senior pastors, Sam and Nike Adeyemi, were live in church, and the atmosphere was awe-to-the-some.
It felt great seeing them in church. But that wasn’t the best part. Pastor Sam continued the series, “The Word Works,” and while I was seated in church, his words were like grace to my ears and direction to my heart. You can relive the moment right here
Like Pastor Sam told us on Sunday, when you get a revelation, obey and act on it. The year 2023 was declared our “much-fruit season.” And we need to act on revelations/ideas to bear fruit.
You know, brother James puts it this way in James 1:22-25 (MSG):
“Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like. But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of God—the free life!—even out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action.”
James is telling you, when you get that idea or that revelation, to act on it. There’s a beautiful story of what happened at a wedding event, which we call ‘Owambe’ in Nigeria’s local parlance. I’ll tell you more about that on Saturday. For now, stop analyzing and start acting.
Join us at 6p.m (WAT) today as we continue our series, “The Word Works.”
