For me, almost every major transformation took place only after I made it through the mud. We all have to make hard decisions and the right answer is not always clear. It’s a lot of hard work to push our egos down and put God in charge. The enemy will use our ego to lead us astray. It’s important we recognize our intentions to see if our choices are God led or ego led.
Often we face challenges we don’t invite into our lives and still end up better, stronger or more resilient in the end. Mud first then transformation. Push through the discomfort and trust God. Knowing He is on this journey with us, what is there to fear? We can honor God by pushing through the discomfort and being obedient to the things he sits in front of us.
Read: Matthew 8:23-27; Psalm 23:4; Philippians 4:6-7; Psalm 27:1-4
