Circle of Trust

We live in a world where being comfortable is the goal. I challenge that notion. We are called as men to grow and become strong. We cannot do that if we are comfortable. The story of Jacob from Genesis in the bible is a prime example of how we as men try to accomplish our own goals with our own desires in mind. It is a story of how a young man tried to live a comfortable and easy going life. It took a wrestling match with God and a severely broken hip for Jacob to realize that God’s way, although not easy or comfortable, is the right way to live. God does not care about our comfort, he cares about us accomplishing His will. With that being said, lets find ways in our own lives to be uncomfortable. Can you make yourself more uncomfortable financially by giving more than you think you can? Can you grow spiritually by having accountability and attending church on a regular basis more than you want to? Can you deepen a relationship by having that hard/uncomfortable conversation or forgiving someone that has wronged you? Whatever it is men, let’s make ourselves more uncomfortable so we can grow into the spiritually strong, physically strong, and mentally strong leaders we were meant to be!!! All for His glory!!! Remember, James 1:2-4, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials (uncomfortable times) of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
