Monday Manna – A Word About Competition


Years back I was upset with some issues at work. One morning I asked Holy Spirit,  “Lord are You allowing this to happen to reveal my own heart to me?”

Yes, and to teach you something. That it is not about doing, it’s about being. You are valued for different attributes than your co-worker. Do the best in what your responsibilities are and be a light reflecting My love. Look for ways to serve but also refuse to enter into competition.  I’ve not called you to compete. I’ve called you to serve selflessly in love.

Your worth is in ME and the fact that you are Mine. Let your life reflect that you are Mine and let the rest go. I will promote you or move you as I will. Rest in Me and know that I see all things. Be available to help others and keep your eyes on Me!

Galatians 6:4 AMP — But let every person carefully scrutinize and examine and test his own conduct and his own work. He can then have the personal satisfaction and joy of doing something commendable [in itself alone] without [resorting to] boastful comparison with his neighbor.

Philippians 2:3-4 NKJV  Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
