We understand this process in the education arena. Teachers instruct us, give us pop quiz, test, exams and homework all to expand us and stretch our ability to put more in us. So my question is, why do we not apply this same principle to how God stretches us? God never expected us to stay babies in the body of Christ; He always desired for us to grow and mature to be sons of God. Just like your business or ministry; God never expected it to be a hobby, but to flourish and expand in the earth realm. This same principle applies to your family, relationships and within.
When we start a business or a ministry or just get saved; we all start at ground zero or let me say, first grade. However, if we do not learn how to be comfortable in this place called uncomfortable, we will never grow or our business/ministry will never to expand to the next level. See diagram below:
As long as you run from things that are uncomfortable to you and as long as you keep relieving your own pressure when things get tight; you will never see the next level that God wants to bring you into in every area of your life. Recognize that everything you are uncomfortable, God is stretching you and enlarging your tent. It is never designed to kill you but only to increase you.
