Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” Mk 1:17 NIV

If you want to experience God’s blessing in a new way, get ready to leave your comfort
zone. When Jesus called His disciples they were on familiar turf, doing what they knew
best: fishing. But they couldn’t stay there and follow Him. Neither can you. The Bible
records: “As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew
casting a net…for they were fishermen. ‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will make you
fishers of men.’ At once they left their nets and followed him” (vv.16-18 NIV). Notice, they
had to leave the security of the familiar in order to fulfill their destiny. And in case you think you are too old to try something new, Abraham was seventy-five when he left the comforts of home to go out and establish a new nation. Your age is not the issue, your faith
is. Understand this: today you are just one step of obedience away from the next truth God
wants you to learn about Him, so you can’t afford to stay where you are. We all have a
tendency to cling to the “tried and true.” The trouble with that is, when you are no longer
being stretched you begin to shrink, you become complacent, you think you can handle
things on your own, and you stop growing. That’s a dangerous place to be. If you feel
restless at heart today and believe that God has more for you than you’ve been settling
for, then it’s time to confront your fears, walk through them and launch out into a new
experience with Him.
