Walking in faith is not comfortable; it's holy

Walking in faith is not comfortable; it's holy

Today's Wheatful Wednesday devotional is an excerpt from our brand new Distracted: 40 Days to Know God More & Live Freed Devotional. In this new tool, we address lies of the world and confront them with the truth of God.

Distraction: Comfort
 
First Thoughts:

Lie of the world: Happiness is found through the security of worldly things.
Truth of God: Walking in faith is not comfortable; it's holy.

Devotional:

Living in faith in our fallen world is uncomfortable, and that discomfort is the input to the output of holiness. Instead of pursuing comfort, let's pursue peace. God has a life of peace for you that is far more fulfilling than the "happiness" our flesh so quickly pursues in the idea of comfort.

God wants to be our refuge, to renew us day-by-day in the shadow of His wings so we can continue our pursuit of Christ-likeness.

This idea of a comfortable life plays on our deep desire for rest in God and living in peace. A comfortable life is not the goal. A holy one is.

"for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy." Psalm 63:7 ESV


Prayer / Application:

My God, I want to burn with passion for you. Give me eyes to see the good Father that you are, the Faithful protector of my soul. I want to be a vessel for the Kingdom today that stands for light in darkness because I have your peace and the renewal that comes from resting in the shadow of your wings. I praise you today, God, for this rest and peace you freely give. Amen.

 

Do you understand the difference between comfort and peace? Talk to God about it today.

How do we respond to the nearness of God? Sometimes, I think we fear that He is all knowing, aware of our every shortcoming. Believing we are far too broken to be recipients of His grace and love. It can be very overwhelming to be human and become easily overwhelmed, frustrated and sad. Our flesh sometimes leads us to respond in ways we are not proud of and ways that do not reflect our Father. God's great desire for us is that we would recognize our need for Him. Without awareness of our weak...

I pray this email is a moment of fresh breath and renewal for your day ahead. God says, as we wait for Him, He renews our strength. God smiles when we pause for a moment in the middle of our morning routines to seek Him and it is His joy to fill us with His peace and strength for our day. I pray you feel that renewal and peace in this moment.
