Daily Thought – Moving from comfort zone to courage zone

Word: Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. Exodus 14:13, 14.

Thought: Though the people of Israel slogged in Egypt, it happened to be their comfort zone and they did not what to come out of it and venture to something better. What is the Egyptians in your life today that we are a bondage too and don’t want to leave and come out of. Sometimes when we come out and even when we have the thought of coming out of it, our question is what is in store outside of this – It might the place, job, institution etc., but remember always to do in accordance to His will, since only He can save and take us through to the other side and sustain us. If we are aligned to the will of God, we just need to stand still and see the work of the Lord and do only what He wants us to do. The situations may not be favorable and you might feel that you should not have left your comfort zone, but then the Lord who hardened the heart of the Egyptians also controls all the worldly forces we are afraid of and he can change anything/anybody to make a way for us. We just need to hold our peace and allow the Lord to fight for us – The moving from the comfort zone to the courage zone with so much of uncertainties is always difficult, but we should place our trust in the Lord who has called us and stand still and see His hand deliver us.

Prayer: Dear Lord, even today I am struggling to come out of my comfort zone though you want me to move out. Help me to place the trust in you that I might stand still in peace and see your hand of deliverance. Amen.
