It does not matter how my affirmations and biblical scriptures you quote, if we do not physically work on facing your challenges, it will be highly unlikely that we will be successful in facing it. I use the word “unlikely” because there is always that rare chance that we will be successful without preparing ourselves, even though the percentages of that happening is very low. We do not want to rely on that — instead, we want to have the satisfaction of knowing that we did everything possible to guarantee us victory over our obstacles.
Wise men like Moses, Joshua, and Paul understood this even though they were anointed by God. Moses mostly used the guidance of the Lord in leading the Israelites out of Egypt to the promise land, but he was wise enough to have excellent advisers like Aaron and Joshua around him. They made sure him, and his followers were thoroughly prepared for their journey through the wilderness.
When Moses died, Joshua had the responsibility of conquering the promise land for the Israelites. He had to lead his followers by figuring out and executing military strategy. He did not do this by blinding going into battle — he did this by coming up with a detailed plan and making sure that his people was in the right place at the right time. Look at it this way — God was the omnipotent general telling him what he wanted, and Joshua was the colonel making preparations to ensure his people victory over their enemies.
In order for us to complete our goals, we have to execute them. We will never have the perfect plan. At some point, we have to take what we came up with and run with it. Don’t let a fear of failure hinder you — take action, and know that God is on your side!
