For we are Gods workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10, NIV.
Today's 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, its time to let all of that go. Comparison is a distraction. Comparison is a thief. It steals your time, energy, focus and joy. You arent here to impress anybody; you dont have to prove anything because you are Gods special workmanship. He created you with a purpose for a purpose. You are empowered and equipped to do everything Hes 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 youll see your gifts and talents come out to the full. Youll see His blessing and favor in a greater way, and youll move forward into the life of victory He has in store!
A Prayer for Today
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 Jesus name. Amen.
