Craving Comfort


I believe we all crave comfort to one degree or another. But our greatest craving should not be for what makes us comfortable in life but should be for God and His will for our lives even when that means forsaking comfort.

The Lord Jesus Christ does not promise His followers a life of comfort. He tells us we are to DENY SELF, TAKE UP OUR CROSSES, and FOLLOW HIM.

We need to be willing to forsake anything the Lord leads us to sacrifice including comfort.

Does this mean God will never bless us with what makes us comfortable and happy? No!

But it does mean we need to leave behind anything God tells us to let go in obedience to Him!

Truly no worldly comfort can possibly compare to the wondrousness and gloriousness and amazingness of Jesus Christ and a personal relationship with Him and pursuing and fulfilling the Lord’s plans for our lives!

Is God speaking to your heart through this message?

“Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Luke 9:23 NKJV
