The Light Daily Devotional – Your Place in Destiny
Focus: Your Place in Destiny
You have a place and unique purpose to fulfill in destiny. When you stop comparing yourself to others; you will run your race at your own pace and God will accomplish His plans for your life!
“Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others.” Galatians 6:4 MSG
Comparing yourself to others leads to resentment, discontentment, jealousy and envy, pain, greed, anger, bitterness, and even pride, on the flip side. Comparison leads to making foolish decisions. It’s a trap! It makes the mind become clouded and hinders a man from seeing or thinking clearly. It robs men of joy and peace and diminishes the beauty of God’s blessings in their lives.
Face what God wants you to achieve in destiny. Be encouraged to do well like those who set the pace of good deeds. Don’t be jealous or become dejected on the account of other people’s progress and achievement. Believe in your dreams and aspirations irrespective of your experience in life. No matter what you do, there will be people behind you, people at the same level, and those who are ahead of you. Therefore, move on in destiny with patience according to the measure of grace made available for you.
+ Who are you competing with in destiny?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to run and win the race set before me with patience in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: Comparing yourself to others is self-destructive. You will only enjoy God’s blessings with peace of mind and be a blessing only when you go along in destiny with a happy and thankful heart.
Have a Refreshed Month Ahead!
