Winston Churchill once said, “Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues because upon it, all others depend.”
One major difference between leaders and followers is the courage to step out of the comfort zone.
Everyone has great ideas but only a few people ever take the steps towards actualizing their dreams.
Like eagles, we must learn how to fly.
Like eagles, we were created to soar.
We were created to stretch our wings and ascend the alpine heights of aspiration and achievement.
However, that will remain a fantasy except we are courageous enough to step out of the familiar.
Like Abraham, you are required to “leave” the familiar and “cleave” to the new.
Like Moses, you are drawn out of your background and commisioned to create a new foreground.
Like Esther, you have a place in the palace but you have to be stretched to step into that place.
God never did anything extraordinary through anyone who stayed attached to the familiar.
The familiar often fights your faith.Your faith is best exercised when you step out of the predictable.
Make this week special by moving out of every nest you have out-grown.
The nest must have been a blessing at some point but you were not created to live there all your life.
Step out now…
What are you waiting for?
