Get Up And Go

It’s time to move.

Newton's 1st law of motion
States that an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by an external force.

Sometimes, what we call peace, or rest, is really just an unwillingness to move.
And it's not our fault.
It's our normal setting to want to remain where we are. To remain in this safe space.
Unless forced to move.

The problem with Newton's law is that motion is dependent on an external force.

But for us, we have an even stronger internal force.
The Holy Spirit.
This force sometimes desires for us to leave our comfort zone, or place of rest and move to a better place that has been prepared for us.

But this internal force will not force us (see what I did there)
But we must obey this force, push ourselves and resolve in our minds to move.

Leave your place of rest.
Leave the place where you're familiar.
And go to where God is leading you to.

The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you.
Genesis 12:1 NLT
