Usually when I hear God speak to me, telling me my next step, I tear up. I’m not much of a crier, but I always tear up and get goosebumps.
Why? I think partially it’s because I’m still in awe that God can talk to us, but also probably because what He asks me to do is often outside my comfort zone. My first thought are usually, I’m not good enough, I don’t have enough time, and I don’t know how the end result will be. What if I fail?
But where did it say we would get to fulfill our purpose in the constant safety of our comfort zone? How does that take faith?
How do my clients get healthier and stronger? Not by eating the same way they always have, or living the same lifestyle. Change. And change is uncomfortable, but our greatest growth is on the other side of fear, outside our comfort zones.
I pray every day to God, “Use me. Light up my next step.”
Then I LISTEN (the secret it took me years to learn 😂)
The part that’s harder? OBEYING. When it’s scary and uncomfortable.
His answer isn’t usually in the safety of my introverted, not good at communication, comfort zone I’ve placed myself in.
But with Him, we can fulfill a purpose beyond what we think we are capable of. We can live a life way more significant than if we just live our lives on our own comfortable terms and choose our own paths.
“Now glory be to God, who by His mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of- infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.” Ephesians 3:20
I’m curious if you ask God to show you your purpose… if you listen… and what He’s asked of you? 😍
