We become who God created us to be by spending time with God. The more time we spend with in God’s Presence, the more our desires align with His perfect will for us, and the more we become who God created us to be. The more time we spend with Jesus, the more we get to know God, walk with Him, and be like Him.
When we see someone that’s more successful, more talented, more blessed, it’s easy to get jealous. It’s easy to try to compete, try to discredit, talk about what they’re doing wrong and how they’re just lucky, they’re not really talented. Here’s a key. If you can’t celebrate someone else’s success, you will never get to where they are. If you’re jealous, intimidated, trying to outperform them, you’re going to get stuck. It’s a test. God brings these favor connections across our path. Are you secure enough in who you are to serve them, to honor them, to cheer them on, or will your pride keep you from connecting with their favor?
