A friend recently sent me the YouTube of Marvin Sapp singing a song entitled “Comfort Zone.” Your comfort zone is where your ability or capacity is equal to the circumstance you may be facing. It is a place where we feel secure, safe, and in control. However, when we are asked to do something we feel exceeds our ability, we are said to be “out of our comfort zone.”
While our comfort zone is a place of familiarity, it may also be a place where we lack opportunity to grow. It can become a “gilded cage”, where we never reach the purpose God has ordained for us. Many times God wants to do a “new thing” in our lives. (Isaiah 43:19)
If we are resistant to the change, we miss the blessings He has planned for our lives. The Bible has many examples of men and women who were challenged by God to move out of their comfort zones and into God’s purpose. These included Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Ruth, Esther, and Mary, the mother of Jesus, just to name a few.
Join Marvin and I, as we comes out of our comfort zones. “To go where we’ve never gone, we must do what we’ve not done.”
God is calling me
(to walk into my destiny)
God is challenging me
(to go where I’ve not been)
God is proving me
(and for the rest of my life, I’ll say yes)
Yes yes yes!
