Run Your Race - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 1 December Friday
"…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…" (Hebrews 12:1-2, NKJV)
Run Your Race
easy to be tempted to go through life competing with everyone around
us. When we see someone who’s more talented, better looking or has more
gifts, instead of running our race and being comfortable with who we
are, oftentimes we feel inferior and think, “I’ve got to catch up to
them.” The problem with this unhealthy competition is that it’s a
will always be someone ahead of us. But it’s a very freeing thing when
you realize, “I’m not competing with you. I don’t have to have as big a
house as my neighbor to feel good about myself. I don’t have to keep up
with my co-worker. I don’t have to be a certain size. No, I understand
that I’m not in competition with my friend, my neighbor or my co-worker.
Instead, I’m going to be the best me that I can possibly be.” Friend,
that’s an attitude God can work with. When you focus on being who God
made you to be, that’s when you’ll rise up higher and position yourself
for every spiritual blessing He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
I humbly come to You giving You all that I am. I choose to keep my eyes
on You and allow You to work in my heart and mind. I declare that I am
free from competition today in Jesus’ name. Amen."
