I READ: Psalm 126:5, 6.
In this life, there is no result without effort. A farmer does not know whether the seed he sows will produce good harvest or not, because the result of his harvest depends on how much rain will come, the soil fertility, the presence of pests etc. Even if the result is uncertain, a farmer still wakes up in the morning to sow seeds and work on his land. That farmer must come out from his comfort zone if he wants to see results. The same also applies to God’s children. Living in God’s calling often requires us to sacrifice our time, energy, emotion, finance, and even until it’s not rare to shed tears. But those who continue to faithfully do what the Lord wants, they will reap with joy. The challenges and price we must pay for the Lord will actually make us move forward and sharpen us. Always be aware, so that we are not caught up in our comfort zone, which can turn us to be “insensitive” and no longer on fire for God.
I DECLARE: Matthew 6:33:” But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
I DO: I will ask the Holy Spirit to remind me if my life gets too comfortable and if I do not serve the Lord with a serious heart.
I PRAY: I will pray so that my family and I may always live in God’s plan and calling.
