Our Father in heaven wants very much to be an active Father in our lives.

However, He will not control us as though we are puppets.
We hope that the meditations will encourage you to deepen your bonds with Him in this most vital relationship of our lives.

17 - My Comfort-Zone
Genesis 12:
1 Now the LORD had said to Abram:
"Get out of your country,
from your family and from your father's house,
To a land that I will show you.

Whenever God wants to develop a person for a special purpose, God does what He did with Abram.

God will call that person out of their comfort zone. That's what God meant by telling Abram to get out of his country and his family and his father's house.

It is never easy for human beings to leave their comfort zone, but if I am to walk with God for myself, I have to come out of the comfort zone of someone else having faith for me.

I need to develop my own relationship with the Lord. I need to ask Jesus to come into my heart for myself and I need to acquire my own personal growing faith.

The land God showed Abram represents for us the opening up of God's real purpose for our life.

Today God is calling you to come out of your own comfort zone and take the next step of faith with Him. If you respond positively to His call, you will begin to find out what your true purpose in life is.

Father, today I want to come out of my place of comfort and take up Your call to find my true purpose in life.
Today I want to take the next step of faith with You knowing that once You have called me, You will sustain me and keep me,
in Jesus' name,

See you tomorrow, God willing,
when you'll find a new thought here to challenge you!
Meanwhile, have a great day walking with the Lord!
