“Comparing yourself to others compromises your future. Discover why…”
Have you heard the expression, “the grass is always greener on the other side”? It’s used when someone imagines that it’s much better on his/her neighbor’s side of the fence.
“All you have to do is look… his/her harvest is overflowing and mine, nonexistent! He/she is more talented, has more friends, more this, more that,” etc., etc.
And the comparison continues to run its course, stealing your joy and motivation. And then this reasoning starts to take root… “What’s the use of going on? I’m useless, pathetic.” In the end, the comparison steals your destiny. Because you stopped in the middle of the road, you couldn’t see the abundant harvest that God had prepared for you, nor the fruit of the perfect plan He’d imagined for you.
Don’t let your vision perish because you think you’re less gifted or less called than Mr. so-and-so. Rather, work on your gifts, sow in your field. Pray and spend time with God… He knows how to inspire you with the strategies to implement and will place the right people along your path! He did it for me when I developed TopChrétien/Jesus.net and “A Miracle Every Day,” and He will do it for you!
Your role is to trust Him. His is to honor His Word… and He always does. God “is not a man, that He should lie” (see the Bible, Numbers 23:19), and His Word never returns to Him void but rather accomplishes what He pleases, as we shared yesterday (see the Bible, Isaiah 55:11).
Don’t compare yourself to others any longer! Move forward! You are one-of-a-kind, and you are worthy!
