I know it’s late in the day but I had an appointment this morning to have my annual mammogram so I got a late start. And as I sit here and think about how uncomfortable the mammogram is, I can’t help but to think of the many lives this uncomfortable test has also saved. So that brings me to my next thought … God has to sometimes put us in some uncomfortable positions in order to save us. Yea, God has to sometimes put us in some uncomfortable places in order for us to see Him clearly. God has to sometimes allow our feet to tread into some uncomfortable territories in order for us to know that He can save us like He said He could. God sometimes allows us to be uncomfortable in our mess long enough for us to see Him manifested through our coming out of it. It’s never comfortable being sick yet we have to go through it in order to get the revelation of healing. Losing your job, having your stuff repossessed, house foreclosed on and all your bills behind is uncomfortable yet God allows us to go through this stress in order for us to see Him working when we come through it with our mind, reclaiming everything!
Oh, I know it doesn’t feel good to be in that uncomfortable position but it won’t be long before it’s over. Have you ever ridden in a car with too many folk? Didn’t you eventually make it to your destination? Have you ever grew up in a house and had to share a bed with a sibling that slept wild and you ended up in an uncomfortable position? Yet now you can look back on the memories and laugh? Ever been crammed in an elevator, pushed all the way to the back and you felt like you were in an uncomfortable position and it looked like you would miss your floor? Oh but when the elevator opens, the folk made room for you to get out? It’s the same way with God. Yes, my brother; yes, my sister; you may be in an uncomfortable position at this very moment and although I don’t know the cause of your dilemma, know this … when it’s time for it to end, God will make a way out for you. Don’t give up. It may not feel good where you are but don’t give up on God! Your uncomfortable position is positioning you for a push into your purpose!
