I've told our students many times in the past that as we follow God, it's rarely easy. The life of a Christian is not a comfortable one. We should never be comfortable as Christians. God gives us peace, joy, and comfort when we need it most, but as Christians we should allow God to take us to the next level, the next place, the new leg of the journey, and that is generally not a comfy process. It takes us stepping out into unknown territory, it takes us putting control into God's hands and out of ours, it takes us trusting in God even when it may not make sense, or seem possible to us.
This is where we are at, in a place of uncertainty. We know God called has called us, but we don't know what that will actually look like. We are in a place of total dependency on God, which is exactly where we need to be, it's where he wants us to be, which is exactly why as Christians we shouldn't get comfortable. When we're comfortable in our life as a Christian, we tend to depend on ourselves, we don't have to rely on God as much, we don't have to pray for the next step, because we don't want that next step, we like where we're at.
God always has another step waiting for us; it's up to us to take it. It takes dependency on God while taking that step. It doesn't take long after we've taken it however that the next one is there waiting for us. The life as a follower of Christ is one of numerous steps that lead us down the life God created us to live. Some take only one or two of those steps, they end their life never coming close to the full potential God had for them.
I want to be one who takes every step presented to me from God. I don't want to wait to long, over think or over analyze the next step in front of me. Christianity works best under fire, under persecution, under trial, and in the waiting for answers. It's in those times we are faced with two options, seek God out whole heartedly in a way we never would under comfortable circumstances, or look inward at ourselves. I know from experience that looking inward for answers usually messes things up more, if not in the now then in the later.
