24 Mar BREAK AWAY FROM YOUR COMFORT ZONE
When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” Luke 5:4
God wants to bless you—big-time! It was for this reason that He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” The deep is where you will find a whole lot of fish. You won’t find them near the shore in shallow waters. But to launch out into the deep is to move away from the comfort of the shoreline. God wants you to break away from your comfort zone and step out in faith to do what He has put in your heart. It may be something simple, but which you have never done before.
Now, our Lord Jesus who said, “Launch out into the deep…” also said, “…let down your nets for a catch.” Notice that He used the plural “nets” and not the singular “net”. Beloved, God wants to give you more than what you need. His dream for you is bigger than anything you can ever dream of. Dream big and God will exceed your dream because He delights in giving you exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20)
God wants to bless you beyond your wildest dreams. But it was not until Simon launched out into the deep that he ended up with the net-breaking, boat-sinking load of fish. You, too, will be astonished at your catch when you step out of your comfort zone.
1 O God of Dr Chris Okafor grant me the grace and enablement to breakaway from my comfort zone.
2 Oh lord, I ask for mercy, I repent of every known and unknown sins that keeps me apart.
3 You power that makes me keep away from spiritual authority,manifest and die by fire.
Liberation thought: I’m coming out of my comfort zone, to a place that I have never known.
