But this comparison trap goes south very quickly. We can find ourselves jumping to conclusions. Making snap judgments. And making irrational statements. Pretty soon we are saying life isn’t fair. And wondering why do other people get opportunities in life and we don’t? Why do others have things that we don’t? Why does the grass seem greener on the other side?
That train of thought. That line of thinking. It gets us nowhere. And it gets us there fast. Life seems unfair when we start to compare. Instead of wondering why we don’t have what others have, maybe our thought process should be that we don’t have it cause we don’t need it to fulfill the purpose that God has for our lives. Maybe God didn’t give it to us because He knew that it would be a hindrance to our calling and not a help.
You see that thing that you think you need could become a distraction that could sway you in the wrong direction. You see that thing you think you need could be a deterrent to your destiny. You see that thing you think you need that you think God is denying from you could be destructive to your purpose.
If you don’t need it, God won’t give it. But if you need it, you will have it. So next time you see something you think you need, instead of quickly going down the rabbit hole, take a step back and realize that if you needed it God would have given it.
