Run your own race
Sometimes we tend to get off track because we are constantly comparing our lives to that of others. We try to justify our wrong and/or right ways based on others. When it doesn’t seem as if we are being “BLESSED” as another we try to compare and make ourselves more or less worthy to “RECEIVE” than they are. We don’t know the path someone has had to take to get them to where they are.
“WE OFTEN SEE THE TANGIBLE AND OBVIOUS BLESSINGS OF A PERSON, BUT WE NEVER FULLY KNOW THE INNER DEPTHS AND INTIMATE TIMES THEY HAVE SPENT IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD!!!”
I started a 40 day social media fast and it was so needed for me during this time of my life. My race is not precedent on another’s wrong or right doings. My race isn’t centered on how fast or how slow another person is going. God has set me up for a MIGHTY VICTORY. He has DESTINED for me to WIN this race, but the more I stop listening to my COACH and stop following HIS DIRECTIVES, the farther away from the FINISH LINE, I will become. I noticed that many times I would look on social media and instantly get down because I wasn’t where I wanted to be or where I thought I should be. I was looking at the lives of others wishing I was married, having children, and living life debt free. The whole time I was missing what God has already blessed me with. I needed the break from social media so that I could tune in to what God has for me. I needed that time so that I can truly feel the presence of God working in my life. When we take the FOCUS off of GOD we become consumed in things that was never meant for us.
This is a season of training for me. Training and disciplining myself to commune more with God, look to Him, Trust Him, Obey Him, and fulfill the PLAN He has for ME!
✨Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for YOU,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give YOU a future and a hope.”✨
As we can see, God says he has a plan for YOU! As you seek Him in the scriptures, you must look to His Word and make it personal for YOU!! He’s the POTTER and YOU are the CLAY! Although similar, I can guarantee that when you place two similar items next to each that you will eventually find something that’s not the same! As God’s Masterpiece, HE makes each of us different! He makes us with our own unique gifts and talents!
I know my life has had many ups and downs! I couldn’t imagine anybody else going through what I’ve been through. Just as I can’t imagine living the life of others! Instead of comparing and wishing our lives were like others, we should be grateful and thank God for the life He has made possible for us and do all we can to live OUR LIVES the way God has destined for us!
I heard a message by Bishop Dale Bronner and he stated that you get what you prepare for! This is definitely my season of PREPARATION!
In order to fulfill the call of God on MY LIFE I have no choice but to run my own race! I can’t keep looking at the lives of others to determine the timetable God has set for me! I can’t compare my life to others! God has destined each of us for greatness! We are our own individuals and what God has planned for each of us will happen for US as we TRUST HIM with our lives!
There are goals that we each need to accomplish and things that God needs for us to do. None of that can be accomplished if we lose focus of God and place our focus on everything and everybody else around us.
Outside of growing deeper in God and getting back in right ALIGNMENT with HIM, God gives us desires in which we’re able to ACCOMPLISH as we submit them each to Him!
Think of the goals, dreams, and desires that God has placed within you and then submit them to Him and get moving!
This is my SEASON of DIVINE ORDER and ALIGNMENT from the INSIDE- OUT! I started this 40 Day Social Media Fast, not expecting anything major to take place! Through this CHOSEN FAST, God has truly been working on me! I haven’t fought the process like I normally would! I’ve taken every chance to really SURRENDER to HIS ANOINTING and Let GOD be GOD!
LORD LET YOUR WILL BE DONE IN EACH OF OUR LIVES!!!! WHAT YOU HAVE FOR US IS FOR US!! WHEN WE SEEM TO GET OFF TRACK AND FOCUS ON EVERYTHING OUTSIDE OF YOU THEN DRAW US BACK TO YOU SO THAT WE CAN BEGIN TO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE PLAN YOU HAVE FOR US!!! LORD WE TRUST YOUR PLANS AND YOUR TIMING!!! REMOVE EVERYTHING FROM US THAT IS HINDERING US FROM RUNNING OUR OWN RACE!!! THANK YOU LORD FOR TRUSTING US WITH A PLAN TO BEGIN WITH. IN JESUS NAME! AMEN!!!!
