She liked her space. It might be little but it was comfortable. And as long as she stayed within the borders, she was safe.
“You can stay there if you want,” God said to her. “But if you do, you will miss so many amazing experiences with Me.”
“What do you mean?” she asked, confused. “You’re here with me. What else do I need?”
“Yes,” He reassured her. “I am there with you. Always. But I am not just there. There is so much more to life in Me than what you find in your little space. If you are brave enough to step outside the border, you will experience Me in ways you can’t even imagine. You will see me do things that no one else can do, some of them even through you. You will walk with me in places you never thought possible. Your life will be full of excitement, possibilities, victories, and satisfactions that is not possible in your comfortable spa.
“But isn’t there danger out there? Can’t I get lost or hurt or scared out there?”
“Yes, there is always a risk. But I will be with you so you need not fear. All you need to do is decide if a deeper life with Me is worth the risk.”
She thought about that. Sure, she’d be fine in her small comfortable safe place. And God even said it was OK for her to stay there. But what would she be missing out on? Did she love Him enough – trust Him enough – to dare going beyond her self-imposed boundary?
