Sometimes you need to be uncomfortable

The reality of life is that we have to experience uncomfortable situations. Sometimes we cause them ourselves, and sometimes others cause them for us. An uncomfortable position is when you can’t get your way . . . in whatever, and you have to work with a group, or complete a project in a manner that YOU didn’t lead or decide. Our response in these types of situations can be very telling of our relationship with God. Do we yield to the will of God and say, “Lord, I don’t know why this is working like it is, but I’m going to seek your plan and will for my life in this area”. Do we have an example to follow?  Yes, and that example is Jesus. When Jesus was on His way to the cross, He made it plain that HE DID NOT WANT TO GO!!  Having to bear our sins on the cross was not something that He wanted to do. Let’s look at scripture here. Luke 22:42 teaches us quite plainly here that Jesus didn’t want to do it. He wanted that cup to pass from Him . . . but in that verse Jesus makes a “God first” statement. He tells the father, “not My will, but thine be done”. Jesus put Himself in an uncomfortable place so that you and I could be put back in right relationship with God. That is awesome!!! Study that verse of scripture as it is made plain that going to the cross was not Jesus’ will. Are you willing to get out of your comfort zone in order to walk in what is God’s will for you? That may mean leaving your job, selling your house, dismissing some old friends . . . starting anew. The Bible teaches us that all things work together for good for them who love God and who are called according to His purpose. God loves you and he has an expected end for you. There may be times that you experience uncomfortable places, but know that His grace is sufficient for you and that His strength is made perfect in weakness.
