Where’s Your Comfort Zone?

Faith. Never leave home without it! Too often our faith in God’s provisions falters because we don’t really know who we are in the Kingdom. The first thing we must do is ask ourselves, “Do I believe that Jesus is who He says He is?” If the answer is yes, then you’re carrying His Spirit because the Spirit of the Living God lives in people who follow Jesus. That’s critical to understand so that we begin to embrace who we are in the Kingdom. As carriers of His Glory, we’re also heirs of the Kingdom. As adopted Children of God, you have a legal right to use His name to rob Hell and take numbers!

But how can we have a stronger faith? It’s all about your comfort. We’ll never experience God’s miracles from the easy chair. We have to step out of our comfort zone to really see God move. What’s the reason, you ask, that we have to step out of our bubble of comfort? When we’re comfortable, we rely on our own strength. But when God calls us to step out of the boat, to go beyond what’s comfortable for us, that which is beyond our own strength, we have to lean on God’s power.

It’s then — when we trust in God’s strength and provisions — that we see the miracles of God manifest. True faith in God begins at the end of your comfort zone. God is looking for men and women who are willing to step out. Out of our financial comfort, out of our physical comfort, out of our emotional or reputational comfort. Out of the realm of our own strength and into the realm of God’s promises.

When we step out, God’s power comes rushing in. Supernatural things — those things that are beyond reason and the laws of nature occur. Miracles, healing, and financial blessings abound. You see, it’s oftentimes said that faith is spelled R-I-S-K. What are you willing to risk for God? When you step out of that comfort zone and watch God fulfill the promises He’s already made, your faith skyrockets.

So to build your faith, you have to be willing to become uncomfortable. Pray boldly for that person God’s been putting before you. Give when He says, “Open your wallet.” Do that thing that pushes you beyond your own strength and watch God’s blessings flow.

Your faith will be stretched to new levels, and God’s glory will shine. Mark my words.
