Are You Different From The Crowd?
“Change” is a scary word because most of us have created a “comfort zone cocoon” around us and that is where we like to stay if at all possible. We think of the picture above as being very beautiful as long as we are not the white petal that stands out so vividly from the rest of the flower. Many times we would rather blend in as much as possible or even fade into the background.
Most of the time God has to make us so miserable that we can’t stand it any longer before we will be open to change, because as long as we are comfortable we usually won’t consider it. Our circumstances might be bad, but somehow we have grown used to them and would rather stay where we are than step out into the unknown and attempt something better.
The unknown can be scary even with God as your guide. You can’t see Him, but that doesn’t mean He can’t lead you exactly where you need to go. He is looking for the person He can make into the white flower that stands out from the rest. You have a unique personality and unique talents that He wants to develop and use for His Glory and to promote His Kingdom here on earth.
As God reveals Himself to you, He will ask you to do some things in a way you probably won’t understand. I’m sure that Joshua didn’t understand it when God told him that the Israelites should march around Jericho silently once a day for six days, and then 7 times on the 7th day, and after that the walls would fall down.
Don’t be afraid to step out into the unknown as long as you know God is with you. Don’t settle any longer for living life in the “comfort zone cocoon” you have created around you. God has great plans for your life, so please open your heart to Him and let Him show you what they are.
