I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God!
For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation
and draped me in a robe of righteousness.
I am like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding
or a bride with her jewels. Isaiah 61:10 NLT
The Lord does not want us to judge or compare ourselves with others. He made each one of us unique and set apart in the way we use our individual gifts to glorify Him. He does not want us to try to be exactly like someone else for that would be doubting the very thing he created; you!
When we try to compare ourselves with others it sets us up for failure. Our true value and worth come from God and God alone. He is our ultimate source of approval, grace and love.
As it talks about in Isaiah, He has dressed each believer in a robe of righteousness and clothed us with salvation. What greater gift could there be than to be like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding or a bride with her jewels?
So if you are having doubts about who you are or where you’re supposed to be going in life, look to the one who created you. [inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”” suffix=””]Pray for His guidance in the purpose he created you for[/inlinetweet]. He loves you more than you could ever imagine!
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
