Slap your comfort zone in the mouth

Slap your comfort zone in the mouth! Yes, that right. This is a lesson that can be learned from either the Prophet Jeremiah or Moses. Mentally they did not feel they were qualified enough to do the work of the Lord. Moses said to God, "Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue."  Jeremiah answered God, "Oh, Lord GOD, I really do not know how to speak well enough for that, for I am too young." Despite this they went on to be great men for God. Why? God pulled them out of their comfort zone. 
Most people are afraid of being put out there to face large groups or even lead people. This is the comfort. It is human nature. However, you never get to conquer anything unless you break through that comfort zone. In fact, the devil wants you to stay in the comfort zone. In your comfort zone, you can praise quietly so no one hears you. Quiet enough to no disturb anyone. You can pray a 5 second prayer before someone notices your head is down. In your comfort zone you hold back a little. HOWEVER, if we smack our comfort zone in the mouth, the praise we really need to give God can come out. The praise we really need for our breakthrough will come out.  
I believe there are positives in staying in our comfort zone, but there can also be some germination of stagnancy and complacency. Those two words are faith and purpose killers. Slapping your comfort zone in the mouth is a great way to elevate your faith and reach your purpose. Amen!
