YOUR OWN ANOINTING
Beloved, if you try to walk in the shoes of another person, you will end up frustrated, self condemned and rejected, accused and insecure. The grace to walk in those shoes is only for that person, it is not for you. I have given you your own anointing and gifts that match who I AM creating you to be in Me. These gifts fit your life perfectly and they are finely honed to pour out exactly what I need to express through you.
The race you need to run is your own race. Put on your own shoes, and don’t compare yourself with another’s race. Keep your eyes off yourself, off others and on to Me. Look at the smile on My lips as I see you moving forward and making progress. Listen for My voice that shouts, “YES!”
When I focus on you and how much you mean to Me, it grieves Me when you compare with others and what you think you lack. How can you love others when you don’t love yourself? How can you receive My love when you reject yourself? Precious one, I have created every nuance of your frame and life. Every jot and tittle makes you unique and special. There is only one you and I have plans that fit you exactly where you need to be. Take off the trappings of another and walk in the anointing I have given you.
Gal 6:4-5 NLT
Be sure to do what you should, for then you will enjoy the personal satisfaction of having done your work well, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct.
1 Sam 17:38-39 AMP
Then Saul clothed David with his armor; he put a bronze helmet on his head and clothed him with a coat of mail. And David girded his sword over his armor. Then he tried to go, but could not, for he was not used to it. And David said to Saul, I cannot go with these, for I am not used to them. And David took them off.
