Everyone likes to remain in their personal comfort zone for many reasons; going outside of the comfort zone can cause anxiety and even pain. Personal trainers push their clients to go beyond what’s comfortable so that they achieve more with the goal of getting your body at its maximum strength. No pain – no gain is often used to help motivate people to go one step further than they did the day before.
God works the same way. God pushes us out of our comfort zone so that we can maximize our effectiveness in His Kingdom. Do not be afraid to do a little more or go just a little further in unchartered territory. It might be painful but there is a blessing on the other side.
When you are faced with difficult situations and you feel like you can’t do it anymore, remember these three things:
1) Believe that God will hear you when you pray and He will answer you
2) Persevere in what God allows in your life
3) Look forward to what God is going to do to deliver you
Sometime in your life, you will run into a situation that only God can get you out of. Open your heart to Him and tell Him you need Him and then believe that God will answer your prayer. Don’t doubt it for a second. God is there and He wants nothing more to deliver you. Don’t waste time asking ‘why did this happen to me?’ Believe that you will see the goodness of the Lord. You won’t know how or when but God will bring you out. Faith will keep you holding on to the God of the impossible. Wait patiently for Him and in due season,you will reap a great harvest. If you have a vision, write it down. It may tarry but the Bible tells us that it will surely come; that it will not lie.
Just beyond your threshold is a destiny that is abundantly more than what you have asked for. Anticipate it; believe in it and pray over it. God will never let you down.
