As I began my life, I pictured what it would look like through someone’s eyes. I always wondered what they did to get what they have and how I can get it too.. Not knowing what they did to get it or keep it. I just knew I wanted what they had. This is considered Covetousness in the bible! Wanting what my neighbor has. 🤔😲 Oops this is a sin!
God said in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for You, declares the Lord, plans to prosper You and not harm You, plans to give You hope and a future.” (NIV version)
• (Message Bible) I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out- plans to take care of You, not abandon You, plans to give You the furture You hoped for.
The plans that the Lord has for you are Not for everyone else. You may loose people during this race, because they won’t believe in you nor what God has told you.
1 Corinthians 9:24; “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” No matter how long it takes me, I will get to where God wants me! Time, Patience, Walking by Faith and not by Sight and Trusting God every step of the way.
Ecclesiastics 9:11 “I returned, and saw Under the Sun, that the race is not to the Swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor yet bread to the wise, nor yet richest two men of understanding, nor yet favorite two men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” You have just what it takes to be blessed as well.
I have been the one looking at others and saying “Why are they doing this or that?” What about Me? “Why are they being blessed?” What about Me? “Why are they going places?” What about Me?
(My transparent conversation with God) Why God Why??? Am I still in the same place that I’ve been in for awhile? God said to me “If you focus on what I have given you, you will understand what you have.” Lord, it’s hard for me to focus on what I have.. because I see what others are doing, and their still being blessed. Lord, I’m living he best I know how, Praying like I should and reading my word and othing seems to be in my favor. God said, why focus on them and what their doing, when I’ve created something better in you and for you!” God, I know that but when is it my time?” You’re time is now, if you focus on what I’ve given you already and shown you, you will see that your already ahead of the rest!” Stay the course and you will win. Thank you God, I will trust you.
I can’t run the race that is set for everyone else, because I don’t know the obstacles that they have overcome or encountered in order to run the race they’ve ran. Like God said to me… You’re time is Now! I’m going after it all and no looking back. Stop comparing your race to someone else’s finish line. This season when you start and finish your race say this to yourself: “I Am Good Enough, I will Succeed and I will Finish Strong in Jesus Name” You got this!
Remember, If you Allow God to lead you in this race, you will NOT be defeated! God is ready to lead you, guide you and push you to the finishing of your race. God LOVES you enough to show you the way.
Love You Forever and Always,
