Don't be Afraid

Joshua 1:9
     This is my command-be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For The Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

     You called me out upon the waters, the great unknown, where feet may fail. And there I find you in the mystery, in oceans deep, my faith will stand.

      Is God calling you to a place that you are unsure of to do things that you wouldn't normally do??? I know that he is moving me and a few of my friends out of our comfort zones! He is making changes that we normally wouldn't make!    I don't like change! I am a routine kind of girl, therefore I know these changes are from God!!!  

      God is moving me and all of his children out of their comfort zones to spread the gospel! We shouldn't question it or try to run away and hide from God like Jonah did! He is in complete control and he causes all things to work together for our good!!! He isn't going to send us somewhere that he isn't going to be walking with us every step of the way! 

      Let this be your prayer today! It's from my favorite song that we sing at church. 

     Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters wherever you would call me! Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior. 

This devo was written by Maggi Sellers! I hope it encourages you to step out of your comfort zone and go and do what God has called you to do!! You can follow me in Insta and Twitter!

  1. It is hard to step out of our comfort zone. But if HE has called us to do it HE will do the work if we listen to His voice. And do as HE tells us!!

  2. Amen, Christian woman who are stepping out of our comfort zone (Maggi, Beth, Denise and me !) The beautiful thing about serving Christ with these amazing woman is that we all are not comfortable with just getting our feet wet!!!! We all go in the water, swim down until we are completely wet!!!! So many of my Christian friends are no longer satisfied with just going to Church once a week, saying a quick prayer before heading off to work!!! Jesus is coming!!!! Join TEAM JESUS!!!!!! Spread HIS word!!!! WARNING.... when you do get wet over the top of your head.... Trusting the LORD every step of the way.... most likely HE will call you out of your comfort zone to new horizons!!!! GOTTA LOVE JESUS!!!!

  4. Awesome devotion! This reminded me of that song, "If You say Go" by Vineyard Music. Sometimes God sends us to places we don't want to go to because of certain people or because it messes with our routine and He ends up not only using us but blessing us with new friends and we personally end up better than before. When we fix our eyes on Him and His will, He never lets us down. It might not be what you want at the time, but it all works out!

    "And we know that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
