Are 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 them? Friend, 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 workmanship. He created you with a purpose for a
purpose. You are empowered and equipped to do everything
He's called you to do. If you will choose to stay free from a spirit of competition
and just run your own race, 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* Dear God, thank You for setting me free from competition.
I choose to rest in You knowing that I am Your workmanship.
Thank You for directing and ordering my steps. I will compare
and compete with myself today.
