When most people are asked what their favorite season is they either answer spring or fall. Why? Because it’s not too hot, and not too cold. They are comfortable times of the year, in terms of the weather.
Now there is nothing wrong with favoring spring or fall over summer and winter. But there is danger in remaining comfortable in regards to your life, and what you believe and value.
God doesn’t want us to remain comfortable in our spiritual walk with him, or in any other area of our lives.
God wants us to turn up the heat!
“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.’”
~ Revelation 3:15-16
Turn up the heat in your time with God! Spend more quality time in His Word, and in your prayers! When you don’t know what to pray about, pray in the Spirit! Don’t let your spirit burn out- keep the fire going!
Turn up the heat on your goals! If your goal is to get a degree, study harder! If your goal is to loose weight, work harder! Whatever your goal is, push harder!
Turn up the heat in your relationships! Recognize the important relationships in your life, and keep the fire burning! Spend time with your spouse, and don’t just be a parent on the weekends! Call your mom! Appreciation goes a long way.
God will give you the strength you need to live your best life! There is no need to burn out! Instead of remaining comfortable, turn up the heat in your life!
