You women who are so complacent, rise up and listen to me; you daughters who feel secure, hear what I have to say! Isaiah 32:9
Has your comfort zone become too comfortable even for you? I mean comfortable to the point of even being uncomfortable?
Holy Spirit has been prompting me to make some changes in my life and to be quite honest as scary as these changes feel in the natural, I am seriously more afraid of not venturing out and accomplishing all God has called me to than staying in the safety of my comfort zone. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not because my comfort zone is small and boring, on the contrary. It’s more because I have seemingly come to the end of it, where it is now simply become the beginning of a new comfort zone (aka C-Zone).
I was truly getting to a point of discomfort in my C-Zone knowing that God was demanding more of me. He demanded I step up as the Leader and woman of purpose He created me to be. I knew that if I didn’t begin to take the steps He was prompting me to, I would stagnate and my gifts and talents would be forever held hostage by self-imposed fear. The thought of not fulfilling God’s call on my life has become more uncomfortable to me than that of going beyond the boundaries of my comfy place.
God has invited me on a journey far beyond myself and anything I could ever have conjured up on my own. Having the right response is an important key to moving forward when hitting the edge of your C-Zone. When God offers you an opportunity to give up your C-Zone and step into the G-zone (God Zone) with Him, know you aren’t taking that step alone. He goes before you to guide and protect you. He gives you wisdom, discernment, knowledge, and understanding to practically walk out the very thing He created you to do. He is calling us out of our C-Zone into His G-Zone. And when we’re in the G-Zone, the God Zone… no weapon formed against us shall prosper.
