Hesitating to move when God has given the command to do so is the equivalent of disobedience. The hesitation can be born out of fear, doubt, or unbelief. Fear causes us to stand still and be incapacitated to the point of no forward progression. Doubt causes us to waver in uncertainty due to not having all of the pieces of God’s plan revealed to us. Unbelief causes us to disregard the command altogether because we do not believe God has issued the command. Although all three reasons for hesitation are a cause for concern, the latter point causes an even greater concern because it can also be based on our level of belief in whether God exists at all.
The Word of God teaches us that,
“…faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…without faith it is impossible to please Him (God): for he that cometh to God must believe that He is (exists), and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him…” (Heb. 11:1,6).
Removing any hesitation requires three things: 1) We must believe, 2) We must know, and We must see. To be able to move forward without hesitation when given the command to do so requires us to believe that God exists. To be able to move forward without hesitation when given the command to do so requires us to know that we have a communicative relationship with Him when we go to Him in prayer. To be able to move forward without hesitation when given the command to do so requires to be able to see the hand of God moving in our lives.
If we have a relationship with God and have experienced His faithfulness…why hesitate? We must be able to believe, know, and see the plan of God even when all of the evidence appears to be pointing to something altogether different.
