Week 1 : The Dangers of Overthinking

Ecclesiastes 11:4-5 NKJV

He who observes the wind will not sow,
And he who regards the clouds will not reap.

As you do not know what is the way of the [a]wind,
Or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child,
So you do not know the works of God who makes everything.

Ecclesiastes 11:4-5 AMPC

He who observes the wind [and waits for all conditions to be favorable] will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap.

As you know not what is the way of the wind, or how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a pregnant woman, even so you know not the work of God, Who does all.

Dangers Of Overthinking

  • Over Anxiety

Could it be that some of the pains you are feeling now is because of you over thinking?

Luke 22:40-44 AMPC

40 And when He came to the place, He said to them, Pray that you may not [at all] enter into temptation.

41 And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw and knelt down and prayed,

42 Saying, Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but [[f]always] Yours be done.

43 And there appeared to Him an angel from heaven, strengthening Him in spirit.

44 And being in an agony [of mind], He prayed [all the] more earnestly and intently, and His sweat became like great [g]clots of blood dropping down upon the ground.

  • Overly Confused

Genesis 3:1-6 NIV

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,

but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman.

“For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

Genesis 1:26-27 NIV

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 

So God created mankind in his own image,

    in the image of God he created them;

    male and female he created them.

Matthew 4:1-4 NIV

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[b]”

  • Wasted Time

Ecclesiastes 11:4-5 AMPC

He who observes the wind [and waits for all conditions to be favorable] will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap.

As you know not what is the way of the wind, or how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a pregnant woman, even so you know not the work of God, Who does all.

Zechariah 4:10 NLT

10 Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”
