Playing it Safe vs. Risk Taking


Most people live in the comfort zone of life not the end zone. Most of us are settled in with the status quo and just getting by. Playing it safe is on the daily agenda and the next day and so on.
Our lives have become boring and predictable. We are so afraid of failure that we are stuck in a time zone of frustration and regret.


We serve an awesome God who is not scared by our BIG audacious dreams and desires. On the contrary, God desires that we live boldly. Proverbs 28:1 says, “the righteous are as bold as a lion.” God isn’t offended by our boldness, just the opposite. He is offended by our passivity. Bold faith filled prayers bring honor to God and God honors bold faith filled prayers.


What dream do you have that’s been on hold for too long? What vision has God given you for 2012? What step of faith do you need to take? You are only one bold step of faith away from your vision being fulfilled.


Are you going to play it safe or take a risk? Abraham took a risk and left what was familiar to him to see a promise in the making fulfilled. Moses took a risk when he said to Pharaoh, “let my people go.” Joshua took a risk when he told the people to march around Jericho. Peter took a risk when he got out of the boat and started walking on the water.


Take a risk! Take that step of faith and believe God for a better day, a better life. Don’t be paralyzed by fear of man or the fear of looking foolish. Dare to believe; dare to soar; dare to live the life that God has for you. Quit playing it safe and take a risk!
