Comparison is a thief of destiny!

Home | Comparison is a thief of destiny!

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!

    I’m going thru depression right I’m losing faith in everything I do going thru a divorce.

      Stay strong and faithful to God my brother trust me when I say this. I went through exactly what your going through and I let Satan get a foothold through my battlefield and he won that battle however he won’t win the war. I lost my faith and bad things happened to me in my life. I know now if I would of stayed on track with Jesus I would of won that battle and saved myself alot of heartache and grief in my life! That time I’m my life was definitely the worse time in my life. Get surrounded by good God fearing friends and stay in the word and pray all the time.
      Jesus is the only answer my friend.

    Israel , hold on tight to the Lord. I don’t understand the things I’m going through right now, but I know it’s for a divine purpose. His ways are not our ways ! The man with the sick child said to the Lord as he cried , ” I believe, help my unbelief ! ” My friend Israel, I am also there with you. Hold Tight ! He will deliver you !

    I thank God for the a miracle a day. Sometimes when I read them that’s exactly the word I needed for the day. The booster I needed in that moment. I’ll use your own words and say thank you for existing.
    Reste sur cette ligne ne change jamais. Laisse Dieu ce servire avec toi comme Il veut. Que Dieu te bénisse et que la vie te sourie!!!
