How To Be Free January: Comparison
I pray that your New Year is filled with every good gift from God!
My weekly inspirational posts for the month of January will follow the theme of “How To Be Free January”
Although we can define God’s freedom differently depending on our personal needs at the time, there are some similar battles and victories that are common to us all.
The first whisper of freedom God reminded me of this year is… Be You! Be free from comparing yourself to others. You are not better or worse, less or more than anyone else.
Christ completes you.
“and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.” – Colossians 2:10
In Him, we are all uniquely and fully equipped to be the best we can be personally.
Comparison is so destructive to God’s plan of fullness and freedom in our lives. It can leave us with a warped perspective; either thinking too little or too much of ourselves.
The freedom to just simply “Be You!” releases each of us to discover the depths of fullness God has for us and empowers us to love others completely without either judgement or jealousy.
Run your race.
As this new year unfolds before us, may we run with perseverance the personal race that has been marked out for us by God Himself, our eyes fixed on Him as He leads us, not being distracted by those who are running in the lanes nearby.
“….let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus…” – Hebrews 12:1-2
