Memory Verse: Isaiah 42:16 – “I will lead the blind by a way they do not know; I will guide them in paths that they do not know.
Leave your comfort zone 
"I will lead the blind by a way they do not know; I will guide them in paths that they do not know."
I will make darkness into light before them And rugged places into plains. These things I will do [for them], And I will not leave them abandoned or undone.”
The Word for Today devotional by United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) says
1. It is never easy to leave your comfort zone.
Moses probably did not relish leaving the luxury of Pharaoh’s palace or the security of his new family in Midian. Yet if he had not, he would have failed to fulfil God’s call. Just because you do not feel like doing, something does not mean you should not. The greater the assignment, the greater the sacrifice.
2. Real growth begins once you leave your comfort zone. For forty years, Moses benefited from everything Egypt had to offer.
After he left Egypt for the first time, did he begin to learn what was important: namely, God’s purposes? It took another forty years in the desert to discover how God intended to use him - and by then he had been humbled and made over.
The bottom line is, before you can go - you have to grow!
3. Staying in your comfort zone will rob you of your greatest moments and memories. Your life story is written in risks - those you took and those you avoided.
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed about the risks you did not take than the ones you did. The way to pre-empt tomorrow’s regret is by moving forward today into the ‘faith zone’. You say, ‘But there’s so much I don’t know or understand.’
That may be true, but here is a promise you can stand on: ‘I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them … turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These … things I will do; I will not forsake them’ (v. 16 NIV 2011 Edition).
