Free from Comparison -Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 20 December Wednesday
"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10, NIV)
Free from Comparison
you comfortable in your own skin? In other words, do you recognize
yourself as the treasure God made you, or are you constantly looking for
approval and comparing yourself to a neighbor, co-worker or friend? Do
you try to out-dress them or out-perform them? Are you always looking
for ways to one-up others?
it’s time to let all of that go. Comparison is a distraction.
Comparison is a thief. It steals your time, energy, focus and joy. You
aren’t here to impress anybody; you don’t have to prove anything because
you are God’s special handiwork. He created you with a purpose for a
purpose. You are empowered and equipped to do everything He’s called you
you will choose to stay free from a spirit of competition and just run
your own race in life, not only will you enjoy your life more, but
you’ll see your gifts and talents come out to the full. You’ll see His
blessing and favor in a greater way, and you’ll move forward into the
life of victory He has in store!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for setting me free from competition. I choose to
rest in You knowing that I am Your handiwork. Thank You for directing
and ordering my steps. I bless and praise You today in Jesus’ name.
