Get Out of the Box!
What is it that's keeping you from going to the next level with God? He's calling you deeper, He's stretching you and desires to use you in unimaginable ways. As humans we often build a box of limitations, fears and insecurities that hold us captive. The blood of Jesus has provided our way of escape and His Word has crushed our limitations...yet... we tend to hold on tightly to what's comfortable and familiar...
In the past few years, we have turned a corner in our world and life as usual will never return. There's no turning back! We must boldly move forward in full expectation that in the midst of the chaos...there's a plan...We don't just happen to be living on earth during these perilous times, but we were hand-chosen for such a time as this!
Stop searching for your comfort zone and boldly emerge strong and courageous! This isn't the time to live in fear or timidity! There's a world out there that sees their lives spiraling out of control and they desperately need answers and direction. If the enemy can keep us in that box, we will be so self-focused that we'll be blinded to their needs.
Yes, these are desperate and perilous times for the world, but for those who truly know their God and who they are in Christ Jesus, this is a season of divine ministry opportunities and incredible testimonies of the power and goodness of our God! Our light can and should shine brightest in the midst of the darkest hour. Don't hide it! Take everything that's been provided for you on that cross and share it with a lost, frightened and dying world!! Never miss an opportunity to share the gospel and show the love of God to those that are lost and hurting!
Its time to get out of the box!
