Are you sensing a new season unfolding?

Do you ever feel like life is pressing down on you, stretching your limits and testing your faith? Perhaps it feels like the comfort of a secure routine is being disrupted by the challenges of uncertain circumstances or unfamiliar events. But what if those moments were actually God’s way of preparing you for something new and exciting? What if facing our fears and pushing beyond our comfort zones could be the starting point for a thrilling new journey?

There are a few signs to be aware of that could indicate God nudging you in a new direction. If you’re feeling like He might be trying to get your attention and need some divine guidance, you can check out this article to discover some more pointers.

There's Purpose in the Stretching

The Bible is full of stories about how God often uses transitions and periods of hardship to stretch us and grow us. From Abraham leaving his home in pursuit of God’s promise, to Esther risking her life to save her people, we can see that it often takes courage to move forward in faith. But by stepping out and pressing forward, even when it’s hard, we can experience the amazing possibilities that God has planned for us.

When we’re faced with a season of stretching and growth, it’s important to remember that God is always with us. By relying on Him each step of the way, we can have faith that He will bring us to a place of joy and fulfillment. And by surrendering our limitations to His love and grace, we can unlock an exciting new future full of promise.

God has many ways to realign our hearts and lives with His plans. It’s only by being open to the changes that come our way that we can find out what lies beyond our comfort zones and embark on a journey of exploration in partnership with the Holy Spirit. Admittedly it’s sometimes a scary ride but with the assurance that God knows us better than we know ourselves and that His plans for us are far beyond any we could have for ourselves, taking His hand and allowing Him to stretch us beyond our comfort zones is a risk worth taking!

I love how God reminds us of His ability to execute an infinitely better plan for us than we could ever imagine in Ephesians 3:20. The Passion Translation of this verse is particularly beautiful:

“Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energises you.”

So if you’re feeling stretched in your current circumstances, choose not to be afraid. Instead, embrace the uncertainty and recognise that it may be the first step on an exciting new adventure orchestrated by God Himself. Open your heart and invite Him to stretch you beyond the limits of what feels comfortable — He has something incredible waiting for you!

Over to You…

How are you feeling about the prospect of stepping outside of your comfort zone?
