Joyce Meyer's Daily 23 October 2017 Devotional: God Has a Great Plan Just for You!

Joyce Meyer's Daily 23 October 2017 Devotional: God Has a Great Plan Just for You!

Topic: God Has a Great Plan Just for You! [Monday October 23, 2017]

I write to you, fathers, because you have come to know (recognize, be conscious of, and understand) Him Who [has existed] from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong and vigorous, and the Word of God is [always] abiding in you (in your hearts), and you have been victorious over the wicked one. — 1 John 2:14

We need to refrain from comparing ourselves to anyone else, because God doesn’t want us to be frustrated and feel unworthy of the blessings He desires to give us.

Comparing our lives with other people’s lives is unfair—to them and to us. It’s unfair to them because if we become jealous of what they have, what they know, how they look, etc., we start to resent them. Then we can no longer appreciate them as the wonderful people God made them to be.

It’s unfair to us because it limits God’s plan for our lives. Comparison says to God, “I want to limit Your work in my life to this and nothing else. I just want to be like this other person.”

But God has an individual plan for each of us. His plan for you is greater than you could possibly imagine. Stop looking at His plans for others so you can walk in the plans He has for you and receive the blessings they bring.

Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, help me to examine my heart honestly and expose any jealousy, resentment or frustration in me that has developed from comparing myself to others. I want to be all You want me to be and live the life You have for me.
