“For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise” 2 Corinthians 10:12, NKJV.
Women will talk about comparing themselves, but many men won’t. Don’t silently be a friend of comparison. Jesus desires that you run your own race. Just like a mighty God made them–He made you. Measuring yourself to others is unwise, and it will only be a hindrance to you.
It doesn’t matter where another man is. God wants you to fix your eyes forward on Christ, remain in your lane, and run in your season. Finish your course with joy. You give your best, and that’s all that matters to your heavenly Father.
You may or may not have obeyed God like you should’ve, but continue to run your race. You may feel like you’re behind schedule, but you still must run your race. The Lord is known for using His power toward ordering our steps and putting His people right back on schedule. He only wants your focus to be on your course, not someone else’s.
Prayer: Father, You are right. Help me to not look at another man and silently compare myself. I will fix my eyes on Jesus, the author, and finisher of my faith. I thank You for helping me run my own race and finishing my course with joy. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
