30 DAYS TO CREATE A HABIT, LOCK DOWN FOR HOW LONG? 120 DAYS!
IS IT EASIER TO STAY IN AND JUST WATCH?
Mat 14:15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.”
Mat 14:16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”…………. US FEED THEM? TAKING THEM OUT OF COMFORT ZONE!
Mat 14:17 And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”
Mat 14:18 He said, “Bring them here to Me.”
Mat 14:19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.
Mat 14:22 As soon as the people were fed, Jesus told his disciples to get into their boat and to go to the other side of the lake while he stayed behind to dismiss the people.
GO REST ON THE LAKE! EVER GO TO PLAY BUT WORKED ALL DAY?
Mat 14:23 After the crowds dispersed, Jesus went up into the hills to pray. And as night fell he was there praying alone with God.
Mat 14:24 But the disciples, who were now in the middle of the lake, ran into trouble, for their boat was tossed about by the high winds and heavy seas.
Mat 14:25 At about four o’clock in the morning, Jesus came to them, walking on the waves!
Mat 14:26 When the disciples saw him walking on top of the water, they were terrified and screamed, “A ghost!”
Mat 14:27 Then Jesus said, “Be brave and don’t be afraid. I am here!”
Mat 14:28 Peter shouted out, “Lord, if it’s really you, then have me join you on the water!” ARE WE DOUBTING GOD DURING THIS TIME
Mat 14:29 “Come and join me,” Jesus replied. So Peter stepped out onto the water and began to walk toward Jesus.
Mat 14:30 But when he realized how high the waves were, he became frightened and started to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he cried out.
WHERE WERE THE WAVES BEFORE HE REALIZED?
Pro 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Mat 14:31 Jesus immediately stretched out his hand and lifted him up and said, “What little faith you have! Why would you let doubt win?”
John 7:12 And there was much complaining among the people concerning Him. Some said, “He is good”; others said, “No, on the contrary, He deceives the people.”
COMFORT LEADS TO COMPLAINING AND JUDGING
Gal 2:20 “My old identity has been co-crucified with Messiah and no longer lives; for the nails of his cross crucified me with him. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me—we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, and dispenses his life into mine!. NO COMFORT ZONE
John 11:42-44 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.” Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.” HOW DID HE GET OUT?
WE NEED TO FREE FROM OUR COMFORT CLOTHES!
Mar 8:34 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
ARE YOU STUCK IN COMFORT ZONE
Mat 25:37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
Mat 25:38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?
Mat 25:39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
Mat 25:40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
EVEN THE LEAST OF THESE!
Mat 5:14 “Your lives light up the world. Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop?
Mat 5:15 And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light.
Mat 5:16 So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.”
NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE!
2Co 10:12 For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
Eph 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
DON’T BE FOOLED INTO BELIEVING SATAN’S LIES, STAY OUT OF COMFORT ZONES
2Kings 7:3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?
ARE YOU DYING? THIS WILL GET YOU OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
