If you compare yourself to other people you will think you are a failure or you will think proudly that they are failures.
Compare yourself to the purpose, God’s plan, God’s expectation, what does He want?
Ask yourself what God wants as you live for Him, in your relationships with other people.
It’s not good if you lived all your life doing what you wanted to do. Does God want it? It doesn’t matter who thinks you are successful.
Human beings look at you and compare you with other people. The question is not what they think. It’s about what God wants.
You can achieve everything your mind ever wanted. You can actually be fulfilled doing the wrong thing. Fulfillment is just about a desire until you discover that it is not about your desires.
Always want to know what’s on His mind. It’s useless to invest your life in what He doesn’t want. Remember Cain. Remember David when He bought a new cart for God but He killed a man for touching the ark. Moses didn’t know it wasn’t about water and drink. He didn’t know what God wanted. He never asked God what He wanted.
I don’t want to do the best things and find out it wasnt what God wanted. Don’t invest your life in what you want.
Remember king Saul who selected the best things not for himself but for sacrifice to God but God was not interested in those best things.
1 Samuel 15:22 KJV
And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord ? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
Dont let your desires destroy you. They might not destroy you in this earth, but you are destroyed when at the end of everything you dont hear those words, ‘Well done thou good and faithful servant’ and that you served you own purpose.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Why do you want to serve God with that He didnt give you?
Why do you want to give Him that He didnt give you?
Do you have the conviction of salvation in your heart? What are you in pursuit of? What are you struggling to be? What are you desiring to be? Is it what He wants or what you want?
You were created by the word of God and only the word of God can build your life. There is a time others can help you with their faith and there comes a time others can’t.
John 6:63 KJV
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
No word from God is empty of power. Nothing that proceeds from God is empty of power.
If you dont see it, you lose it.
