Are You Paralyzed by Inaction?


DSC_0314

Last week we talked about admitting the truth to take our life forward.

Sometimes we can be faced with the truth and know what we need to do, but we don’t act on it. I recently read a devotional in My Utmost for His Highest that addressed this topic so well and gave me a new perspective on putting action to what we learn.

“Refusing to act leaves a person paralyzed exactly where he was previously.”

Oswald Chambers

How can I move my life forward if I’m paralyzed because of inaction? When I know the right or best action to take and don’t follow through with it, I become stuck in that place until I’m ready to take the next step and move forward.

“Once I press myself into action, I immediately begin to live. Anything less is merely existing.”          Oswald Chambers

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather live than simply exist.

Surviving day to day is not living, and it isn’t the best God has for us. He desires for us to have an abundant life full of good relationships, experiences and situations. (John 10:10) He planned for us to have purpose and live making a positive impact on the world around us.

Here’s the best part:

When we tap into God’s power by acting on something he’s instructed or shown us to do or say, we free ourselves and paralyze the enemy instead.

Oh, yeah. Boom!

Take that, Satan. I’m so on board with taking my life forward in freedom and abundance. How about you? What’s one thing you know you need to act on that you can do this week?

I’d love to hear about your experiences in action in the comments below or email me at laurabennet14@gmail.com

  1. It’s kind of the same as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. In this case, knowing what we need to do but not doing it at all.
    I would rather live than simply exist too. I’m on board. Thanks for the nudge in the right direction.
