Sometimes, we tend to over think, what we have already thought about. Proverbs 3:13
Have you ever thought about something, made the decision to proceed, then all of a sudden started to rethink your decision? That is what over thinking is. It is questioning, what you have already questioned, and even prayed about.
God has given you the answer you wanted, and all of a sudden you have to think about it again. Why is that? Sometimes it is fear. At times lack of faith, and most times just us getting in the way! When we have a thought, or have made a decision based especially on prayer, when the answer comes we tend to bulk or just plain over think it!
Stress sets in, and what mostly happens, we end up no further than when we began, We have just talked ourselves out of a blessing most times!
Proverbs 3:13 says, "Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding."
A wise man never over thinks, he moves. A man who gains understanding, never over thinks,he makes decisions and moves.
When you have a thought, commit it to prayer, and God confirms that thought, there is no reason to rethink it away. Give your brain a rest, trust God that He knows what's best, and just go with what He has already confirmed for you to do. When we stop to rethink this, what are we saying about our relationship with God? That He is not able!
So do not complicate the thought process to much by getting in the way with our thoughts! Sometimes it is just better to act on it than to think anymore about it! If God confirms it, that should settle it! Finding wisdom and understanding is what gives us stability in our thought life! Those abilities come directly from God. Stop fighting it, stop over analyzing it, think about it!
