Do Not Compare Yourself to Others…

God’s glory in the morning sky!

We are traveling again this weekend, seeing the last of our family, minus the California one. I am reaffirming my faith that The Lord is working and it is a good work. I declare: All my family, friends, and loved ones are becoming manifest children of God. They are being saved and healed by Jesus. They will not miss their destinies. They are becoming the manifest example of the saving power of Jesus and are being called forth as workers for the harvest. Amen.

As we enter the year of our Lord 2023, I point you to the scripture in Romans chapter 12. It deals with the parts of the body of Christ, each having differing functions, according to the grace that has been given to you. One version says not to compare yourself to others.

Measure yourself by who you are in Christ, since He is the only true measure. Why measure yourself by someone else? You are unique, and Father God made you for a unique destiny that will not be complete if you are trying to be someone else. Also, if you think others should do what you do, think what you think, understand as you, your life will be frustrating. In a marriage or other partnership, the two should agree to compromise, but if both were exactly the same, one would not be needed!

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. Romans 12:3

Let us walk in humility, dwelling in the love of Jesus, walking in the Spirit. I hope you find a re-set as we enter the new year, whether fasting and praying, starting a new bodily or Spiritual devotion, and pursue the things He has for you at this stage in your life. Next week, I plan to seek the Lord for the word He wants me to concentrate on for 2023. I expect my first book to be published soon and will keep you abreast of how things are going. Also, preparations for the trip to Tanzania February 7th to 22nd are progressing well.

I leave you with this picture of our new granddog Sunnie from last weekend. Shalom!
