DON’T COMPARE YOUR MORTAL JOURNEY TO OTHERS.

Don’t compare your mortal journey with others.
.
Too often we hear some of the following.
.
They have this and I don’t.
.
They have that and I don’t.
.
Why isn’t the Lord blessing me abundantly like he does everyone else?
.
I walk righteously, but I see my neighbors in sin.
.
I’m a member of His church, and I’m faithful; however, they are inactive or not a member, and they are abundantly blessed.
.
Life is easier for them than it is for me.
.
How many of us have been caught in this trap? If you think like this, it’s not Christlike behavior, and you should probably consider repentance. This is what the adversary wants.
.
It’s an ignorant notion to believe God loves others more than you.
.
The Savior was born in a manger. That’s right—a place where cattle and horses eat.
.
”He that ascended up on high, as also he descended below all things, in that he comprehended all things, that he might be in all and through all things, the light of truth; which truth shineth.”
.
The Savior of us all. The Son of God. The King of Kings. The Judge of the world. He was not born in a beautiful Palace or a hospital. He wasn’t meant to live, but killed at childbirth at the order of Herod. He was crucified for teaching His law—the law of the Kingdom of Heaven.
.
Why does God bless others more than you or your circumstances seem worse off than others? Ask yourself this: why didn’t Christ complain about the hand he was dealt from His Father, from God? We, too, accepted our role on earth.
.
Sometimes our prayers are not quickly answered, or sometimes they are. Just remember, how quick were Christ prayers from His Father answered? He hung from the cross and at one point, he cried aloud, ”My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
.
Don’t turn away from the Lord, and don’t blame Him for how or when He decides to answer your prayers. Hear Him! And if you can’t hear Him, keep trying.
.
The adversary will push but the Lord will carry you.
.
