When was the last time you did something for the first time? When was the last time you did something that was beyond your normal routine? When was the last time you did something beyond your level of comfort; something unknown?

Please understand that the only way for you to receive your biggest blessing and your greatest breakthrough, is for you to step into the unknown. For God to take you to another level, you first have to step into an area that you have never been before. You have to step into the unknown. You have to step out beyond your comfort zones. You have to step out on faith.

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance,obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.”
---Hebrews 11:8(NIV)

The only way to receive your inheritance, to receive your biggest blessing is to go to a place you do not know. However, your “Comfort Zones” often prevent you from stepping into the unknown.

Comfort Zones are emotional, psychological and spiritual walls we erect to protect us from unknown and unnecessary harm and potential pain. Safe and secure in the womb of your Comfort Zone, you limit struggle, stress and strife; never realizing that your sanctuary has become a prison for your mind. Your Comfort Zones eventually limit your every thought, even your ability to worship God to the fullest.

If you have ever felt that you have not received all that God promised to you, or that others seem to prosper and grow faster than you, it may be due to your Comfort Zones.

One way to begin to get beyond your Comfort Zones is to do things for the first time. Make a habit of doing new things:
• Take a different route home
• Speak to a stranger
• Shop at a different supermarket
• Go to a new restaurant
• Try a new meal (something you thought would be repulsive)

If you have never raised your hands above your head in church, raise your hands above your head. If you never shouted “hallelujah” at the top of your lungs, scream “hallelujah” as loud as you can!

Once you get beyond your Comfort Zones, you can be all that God intended you to be. Get beyond your Comfort Zones and you will realize a whole new world of unlimited possibilities.

Begin to make the unknown a little more known. Take one step beyond your Comfort Zones and you will take two steps toward manifesting your biggest breakthrough!
