In order to get something you’ve never had, you have to get out of your comfort zone! Listen, I know you are used to being at that church because it’s where you’ve been all your life but if you aren’t growing spiritually, it’s time to move on. If that relationship you’ve been in for the last 10 years hasn’t moved pass boyfriend and girlfriend by now, it’s time to move on. If that job hasn’t recognized the potential in you by now, it’s time to start seeking employment elsewhere. Yea, I know it’s comfortable but it may be time to get out of your comfort zone. Baby, you can’t stay at home with momma and daddy forever. You can’t keep praying for a husband if you haven’t prepared yourself to be a wife. You can’t keep praying for a wife if you haven’t prepared yourself to be husband. You need to get out of your comfort zone. Of course, it’s not going to be comfortable; at first, but you’ll get used to the change. But how will you know unless you try?
I get it, it’s scary and fear is probably holding you back but how long will you allow something as small as fear to defeat you? Even if you fall, which you might, get up. Do you know that every time I get up to speak, I am nervous? Yet, I cannot allow fear to stop me because if I did I wouldn’t ever have anything to say. If I allowed fear to hinder me, you wouldn’t be reading my devotionals every day. You’ve got to push pass your fears. You’ve got to get out of your comfort zone. Do you think it was easy for Jesus to go to most of the places He had to go into? He wasn’t even welcomed in His own hometown yet He went anyway because He had work to do. You do too. You have to get up to get what you want. You can continue to pray until something happens but if you won’t get up to go get the something you’ve prayed for, what’s the sense in praying for it? You can even pray until shift happens but if you are scared to be elevated then what’s the sense? Please know … God won’t ever take you where He hasn’t already secured the area. He sends grace and mercy ahead of you just like the white house sends secret service, so you’re covered but you have to trust in your protection! Get out of your comfort zone because you might just be missing what you’ve been waiting on!
