We all want to live in the zone of God’s blessings, but are we willing to pay the price for those blessings? You see, sometimes—not always, but sometimes—those blessings bring unexpected and undesired consequences into our lives. Sometimes our blessings will arouse the envy of those who are not so blessed. ~ Pastor Ray Noah
My thoughts have been here for the past few days...
The Unintended Consequences of Divine Blessing
For those reasons, it could be that God’s favor will force you to leave your comfort zone. But fear not, for if that’s the case, that forced move will always be to a larger zone where greater blessing can be received. ~ Pastor Ray NoahIt has really caused me to think. Or perhaps, I'm not sure what to think. I guess I always thought it would be a call to obedience that would stretch my comfort zone... and I guess it still is... will I try to please God... or men?
Am I now trying to win
the approval of men, or of God?
Or am I trying to please men?
If I were still trying to please men,
I would not be a servant of Christ.
