Launch Out (Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone)

Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” Lk 5:4 NKJV

Someone has said that mediocrity is just the best of the worst and the worst of the best.  Is that what you want this year?

If not, you must be willing to leave the safety of where you are, and go where God wants to take you.

After fishing all night and catching nothing Jesus told His disciples, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”

In other words, leave the safety of the shoreline and be willing to face the fury of the storm, knowing that God is with you.

Helen Keller, who overcame incredible challenges, said, “Security is a myth. The reason we don’t experience it is because it doesn’t exist. Avoiding danger or failure is no safer in the long run than outright risk. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”

Launching out means setting goals, establishing a plan to reach them, and becoming accountable.

Launching requires staying in sync with God’s will, confronting your fears and discovering the rewards that lie on the other side of them.

Launching demands looking in the mirror, and either respecting or correcting what you’re becoming. 

Launching calls for devoting your life to something greater than yourself, even when others don’t understand.

Launching is having an “I will fear no evil for Thou art with me” (Ps 23:4) attitude, and attempting great things for God.

As you enter this New Year, stop and recall God’s goodness.  Check the price tag on His will for your life against what you’re already paying, and compare the rewards of both. Then, “launch out” and don’t look back!
