Over the past few weeks we have been exploring all of the impossible things that are possible with God. In the midst of such Power it can be comforting to have God on our side. Through him we can weather life's storms (Heb. 6:19). Through him we can have treasure that can never be taken away (Matt 6:20). Through him, we too are unstoppable (Romans 8:31b). But what's the point of such comfort? What purpose does this comfort bring for our lives? Is it as simple as Billy Bass sings to us; don't worry, be happy?
What if God's call for you and for me is to leave our comfort zones and join God in his work (Matt. 28:19)? What if God's call for us is to be uncomfortable? I'm uncomfortable with meeting new people. I'm uncomfortable with knocking on my neighbors door to bring up a sensitive topic like faith. I'm uncomfortable serving in new areas at church. But, what if that's what the Impossible God wants me to do?
God's Word says, "If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth." (Col. 3:1-2) Have you surrendered your life to God? Then, it sounds like it's time for us to follow God in to the uncomfortable!
