Consistency is comfortable. It’s only natural to gravitate towards situations, relationships, and places that we feel safe and comfortable in. But, God’s plan for us doesn’t always have us in places of comfort. Time and time again in God’s Word, in fact, we see His children undergo difficult situations. But these aren’t meaningless hardships, they are used to grow the individual.
But this blog isn’t pointing out the hardships that are present and how we must be brave in the midst of them. Instead, it is highlighting the areas of comfort we must be willing to move on from. We have to be willing to let go of the blessings and comforts God has brought us in a season.
If we aren’t willing to let go, we will be unable to fulfill what God has next for us. Instead, we need to remain focused on what is ahead. We must remain focused on the plans God has for us and not get caught up in temporary desires and pleasures. When we recognize this and adopt a mindset of total obedience, it pleases the Lord.
In conclusion, stay focused on what is ahead. Stay focused on the plans God has for you and don’t get caught up in the temporary comforts that the world has to offer. Stay obedient and in vigorous pursuit of the plans God has for you. Be willing to let go of whatever is hindering your ability to move on!
