As newborn babies, desire the sincere milk of the Word, so that you may grow up in your salvation. I Peter 1:8
Morning Prayer, Friday, September 24, 2021 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: I'M NOT YOUR COMPETITION
Father God, I want to be able to focus on what I am doing without concerning myself with what You doing in my neighbor's life. Amen
"No eye has seen, nor ear has heard and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him." I Corinthians 2:9
"God is preparing you for greater things. If only you could believe that." Runners in a race sometimes lose because they spent too much time looking back to see what the competition is doing. Life is like that sometimes. We lose focus when we are looking the wrong way. The plan God gives to each of us is in front of us, not behind. Listen, the person who has a business or ministry similar to yours is not your competition. We sometimes think that. You see, we miss out because of an inner fear of not reaching the finish line. No matter how much it may look like it, you do not have competition. True, that person is selling the same thing you are selling or their business is quite similar to yours but so what. What God has for you is for you. We spend far too much of our time concerned that other people will get to the finish line first. Live your dream. Walk in your destiny. Work your business. Thrive in your ministry. Don't worry about what people around you are doing. God gave you the dream, the vision, or the ministry and He is the one who will help you take it to the finish line. Your business may not make millions but that does not mean it won't be successful. If you are focused on how well someone else is doing or what they are doing, you can't successfully focus on what God is doing for you. I wonder how many people started and failed all because they were too focused on someone else's progress?
