Leave your comfort zone (1)

March 13, 2016

“Along unfamiliar paths I will guide them.”

Isa 42:16 NIV

To do God’s will, Moses had to leave his comfort zone. “Moses, when he grew up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter…He thought it was better to suffer …than to own the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking ahead to his great reward” (Heb 11:24-26 NLT). To fulfill the assignment God gave him, Moses had to be willing to give up two things: (1) Comfort. Ease is a greater threat to your progress than hardship. After living in a palace, Moses spent his next forty years in the desert tending sheep. He married one of Jethro’s daughters, managed her father’s business, and enjoyed a comfortable lifestyle. Can you imagine leaving all that to go back and face Pharaoh? God’s plan for your life will bless and reward you, but never assume it will be easy. (2) Security. When God called him, Moses had many doubts and questions: “Who am I that I should go?” (Ex 3:11 NKJV). “What shall I say to them?” (Ex 3:13 NKJV). “Suppose they will not believe me?” (Ex 4:1 NKJV). “But I am slow of speech” (Ex 4:10 NKJV). Finally he told God, “Send someone else” (Ex 4:13 NIV). Have you been doing that? Fortunately, God wouldn’t take no for an answer, and Moses finally did the one thing that works when you’re uncertain about the future: He obeyed God, entrusting the details of the future to Him. In doing that Moses agreed to answer God’s call, leave his comfort zone, and return to Egypt. As a result the Children of Israel were delivered from slavery, and Moses’ name became a household word.
