Today’s Word with Joel Osteen 28th November 2020 Devotional
Too often when we see someone who’s more talented and successful, there’s a tendency to think, Why can’t I do that? I want what they have. If we’re not careful, before long we’ll be trying to outperform them, outdress them, outdrive them, outwork them. The problem is that you’re competing with someone who’s not in your race. Your race is specifically for you. You’re not in competition with anyone else. The only competition you have is with yourself to be the best that you can be. So quit comparing yourself to others and run your race.
Nobody can beat you at being you. You can be a better you than anybody in the world. When you’re comfortable with who you are, you’re not trying to be something that you’re not, then your own uniqueness, creativeness, and talent will come out in greater ways. Why? Because you’ve stepped into the anointing on your life. Be you. You are powerful when you’re you.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that Your favor, Your blessing, and Your grace are unique to my life. Thank You that I am just right for the race You’ve called me to run, and I’m not in a competition with anyone else. Help me to be the best me that I can be. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
