Stop comparing myself to others!

2 Corinthians 10 Amplified Bible (AMP)

12 Not that we [have the audacity to] venture to class or [even to] compare ourselves with some who exalt and furnish testimonials for themselves! However, when they measure themselves with themselves and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding and behave unwisely.

My fight with myself is really difficult, I have been working really hard on my attitude, I want to be more accommodating and friendly and loving and kind.  These are normal fruits of the spirit and it seems that I have shaken my tree to such an extent that all the fruits have fallen off.  I am constantly in some kind of battle with my own analysis of who I am, how I should act etc.  To my mind I feel that I have lost value in God’s sight as well as in the sight of friends.  The comparisons are not even real and just but I still keep doing it.  I want to stop having other people determine my worth and I have decided to stop this right now.  I am an original God created me in God’s image.  There is no one like me.

Galatians 5 New Living Translation (NLT)

25 Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. 26 Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another.

I pray Abba Father please help me not compare myself to other people and help me to draw near to You and grow spiritually.  Lord please help me so that I am able to renew my mind and be transformed by Your words.  In Jesus Name Amen

And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
