Being Who I AM in Christ....

In Galatians 6:4 the apostle Paul urges us to be strong and us to grow in the Lord until we come to the point of having personal satisfaction and joy of doing something commendable without bringing yourself to prideful and boastful comparison with others.  
 "Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else." Galatians 6:4

Once you know who you are in Christ, you are set free from the stress of comparison and competition.  You know you have worth and value apart from your works and accomplishments.  So then you can do your best to glorify God, rather than just trying to be better than someone else.  Those who look for God's approval will not need to envy others.  Because we are God's sons and daughters, we have His Holy Spirit as the loving guarantee of God's approval.  What a glorious and wonderful feeling to be secure in Christ and not having to be controlled by strife, envy or jealousy.  Thank God, I can be who God created me to be! He doesn't make mistakes!! 
"Let us not become vainglorious and self-conceited, competitive and challenging and provoking and irritating to one another, envying and being jealous of one another." Galatians 5:26

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to before You humbly with thanksgiving; for making me who I am today.  Thank You that I am not a mistake and You knew me before I was conceived.   As You had a purpose for Jeremiah, You have a purpose for everyone of us, each of us appointed by You Father to do Your specific work. 
I receive Father, that You have always thought of me and everyone of us to be valuable and worthy.
We will do Your works without feeling of envy and competition but only to glorify You and Your Name. We will seek You to fulfill our purpose and strive to do so with diligence and joy and with cheerful acceptance!  Father, I ask that You guide me and those I pray for today to fulfill our divine opportunities and appointments as You present them to us. Fill us the Your wisdom, love, grace and mercy to walk and accomplish Your works for Your Glory.  As we listen for instruction and guidance thank You for Your clarity and purposeful understanding for Your Will.  Lord fill us with Your Holy Spirit, and use our lives as a willing vessel.  Heavenly Father we will live our lives to glorify You.  Thank You, Father for our salvation by faith in Christ Jesus and Truth of Your Word, in Jesus. Name…..Amen!!!
