I have learned that the greatest threat to my life is complacency. If the enemy can get me to dull down my pursuit of God, then Satan has no need to tempt me with sin. It’s the sad reality that it’s easy to fall asleep spiritually from being way to comfortable. It’s not okay to just have an “okay” relationship. It is more than just checking things off from the good/correct list. It is about a relationship. We all feel a tug in our heat and a stirring in our soul. But we are all afraid to adventure past our comfort zone. Outside of our comfort zone is where we experience the true awesomeness of God. It is where we have that “Ah hah” or “wow” moment that there is a creator or a supreme being.
I remember my first “Ah hah” moment. I was in high school. I thought I had my life figured out. Go to college, graduate, get a job, get married and have a few kids and live in a white picketed fence house. However, that was not God’s will. It took me a while to figure that out.
There would be nights where I would lie awake, my mind running a thousand miles an hour about why am I here, what is my purpose, and is this god really real. When I would finally fall asleep, I would have this same dream every night. It was then, after several months of denial that I realized that it was God speaking to me. He was more than just speaking to me it was more like a sweet daily reminder being shoved right in front of me. Of God saying, “Here I am, follow me.” For whatever reason, I thought that God just doesn’t speak anymore to us. Little to my knowledge God had been speaking to me for a long time. I just was wearing earplugs of preconceived thoughts. I didn’t want to think that He could or that it was Him. I didn’t want to get out of my comfortable life that I had planned out.
