THERE IS ALWAYS A BIGGER FISH. There is always someone smarter than you and prettier. There will always be someone more athletic and can sing better than you. There’s someone with more giftings and talents than you. There’s always someone who does the job better, no matter how hard you try. BUT guess what? You are NOT in competition with anyone. I know this is a dog eat dog world and sometimes you feel like you are wearing milk bone underwear, however there’s no need to get caught up in the competitive rat race.
Competition breeds envy and jealousy and the Word says NOTHING can stand against envy. Envy will consume you and cause you to think and do things that can quickly spiral out of control. Remember Cain? The Lord told him, “If you do well, will you not also be accepted?” DO NOT FALL INTO THE COMPETITION TRAP. It can end up costing you your life.
Be content with who YOU are in Christ and what He has called YOU to do. I like to say “Run fast and STAY in your lane”. If you do well, will you not also be accepted? The Lord loves YOU and He created YOU for Him and His glory- not for the glory of another. “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” Psalms 139:14 REJOICE in His presence and In His presents to YOU. He doesn’t ask you to be anyone accept who HE created you to be.
