Acts 20:24

“THAT I MAY FINISH MY RACE WITH JOY, AND THE MINISTRY WHICH I RECEIVED FROM THE LORD JESUS.”

Happy Thursday Saints.

As many of you already know – GOD’S GOT A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.

He has an assignment that has been tailor-made just for you.

According to Ephesians 2:10, you were created “FOR GOOD WORKS WHICH GOD PREPARED BEFOREHAND” for you to walk in.

The Apostle Paul was determined to finish HIS race and he wanted to complete the ministry that HE received from the Lord Jesus.

You have your own race to run for Christ. You have your own lane to run in. If there is one thing you can be free from as you follow Christ – it’s being free from comparing yourself to others.

You don’t have to be good at what others are great at. You don’t have to feel bad if you’re unable to do what God gifted and graced others to do.

Everyone else has their own God-given assignment, their own race to run, and their own lane to stay in.

Comparing yourself to others will rob your own assignment of the focus and energy it requires.

You can’t do EVERYTHING and you weren’t created to DO IT ALL.

Enjoy the success of others and stay focused on YOUR own race. As long as you are pleasing the Lord, you’re doing great.

Have an awesome day. God bless and lots’a love,
Warren
