Free from Comparison

Friday, February 15, 2013


ďFor we are Godís workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.Ē
(Ephesians 2:10, NIV)

TODAYíS WORD from Joel and Victoria

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 others?

Friend, itís time to let all of that go. Comparison is a distraction. Comparison is a thief. It steals your time, energy, focus and joy. You arenít here to impress anybody; you donít have to prove anything because you are Godís special workmanship. He created you with a purpose for a purpose. You are empowered and equipped to do everything Heís called you to do.

If you will choose to stay free from a spirit of competition and just run your own race in life, not only will you enjoy your life more, but youíll see your gifts and talents come out to the full. Youíll see His blessing and favor in a greater way, and youíll move forward into the life of victory He has in store!


Heavenly Father, 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 bless and praise You today in Jesusí name. Amen.

ó Joel & Victoria Osteen

    Amen, God has created beauty in ALL things. A ruby needs not strive to be a diamond, and vice versa.

    Love that verse. It is one I pray over my son in the mornings when I wake him up.
