Genesis 15:5 (Amplified) And the Lord brought Abram outside [his tent into the night] and said, “Look now toward the heavens and count the stars—if you are able to count them.” Then He said to him, “So [numerous] shall your descendants be.”

Is the canopy of your comfort keeping you from conceiving that which you are to give birth to? Are you stuck in a place of knowing that God has more for you but you’re afraid to step out of the comfortable place that you’re in right now to get it? God had to bring Abram out of his tent, his canopy of comfort, so he could see the entirety of what God had for him. In other words, Abraham wasn’t going to get God’s perspective and see the big picture until stepped out of His comfort zone into a place of complete faith and reliance upon God. God had to confront his comfort by showing him the creation outside of him, allowing God create something inside of him. The greatest trap for believer is to have just enough to keep you comfortable but not enough to accomplish your mandate in the Kingdom. It is like comfort food. You’ll eat just enough to get you through the irritation, not realizing, it is keeping you from the happiness of accomplishing your goals. Comfort food really isn’t comfort food, it’s complaining food. The entire time you’re stuffing your face, you’re griping about what you don’t like with your mouth full. So, the thing you thought was comforting you keeps you trapped in the realm of complaining. No one, who has ever achieved anything great, has done without some discomfort and risk. You have to keep your focus on the reward rather than the risks and the ‘what if’s’. The Lord is constantly calling you out of your tent. He knows if you’ll let go of the comfortable He can make the vision He has for your life conceivable. What, or who, are you allowing to hold you back? Let go! Let Him bring you from comfort to conception. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
