Is God preparing you for something, and you have this niggling feeling: Do I let go and find out?, or do I stay where I am in a rut, afraid to move out of my comfort zone?
It literally takes a true leap of faith in God to step outside our comfort zones. Sometimes God uses extraordinary situations to move us.
When we step outside those boundaries, we leave behind that perfect place, our own box, and begin to push and test the limits outside our comfort zone. When God presents us with a need to leave our safety zone, we question, make excuses, and get scared:
What if it doesn’t work?
What if it backfires?
What if I lose everything?
What if it fails?
I am not saying that being in a comfort zone is a negative aspect of life. I am not saying that we should take risks just to leave our comfort zones. We should never do so without prayer and conversation with God. Ask him to show you what he wants for your life. You may be surprised.
Provers 3: 5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
