The Narrow Place

“If you want to reach any worthy goal at all or do anything significant for God, you will find you always have to go through a narrow place.  Any time God leads you toward a broader place – a position of great influence, a greater enjoyment in life, or a fulfilled desire – you will have to squeeze through a narrow place.”  Joyce Meyer

The narrow places aren’t fun, but they are necessary.

Where are you feeling stretched, pinched or pulled?  Do you know what the broader place is that God is leading you to?  Can you see a glimpse of what God may have on the horizon?  Hold out hope for that possibility and welcome the pressure of the narrow place. 

God always has more in mind than we can imagine!
