Cheering for Everyone Else

You shared her post. You liked her photos. You even commented a couple hundred times. So why is it when you need that encouragement and support, it seems as though no one is in your corner?


Jeremiah 29:11 AMP says "For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you, 'says the Lord, 'plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

It can be very discouraging to see everyone around you doing better, perfecting their craft, and doing good things in their life. God has a plan for YOU. Just because you don't know when it's your turn doesn't mean you're not going to have a turn. A common issue we all tend to face is that we look to other humans for satisfaction and value. These people can do nothing for you. Stop obsessing over the achievements, stop obsessing over the followers and likes, and start to fix your focus on God's plan for YOUR LIFE. Pray for guidance, understanding, and the knowledge to know the steps you need to take to get there.

Philippians 4:6 AMP says "Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.

What do you gain from telling your friends all your goals? What do you gain from telling them your hopes and dreams for the future? I would hope most would support you, but there is a small possibility that they might envy your desire to succeed and do better. They might even call you crazy because they know who you are and they think they have an idea of what you're not capable of. Stop talking to them IMMEDIATELY. God knows the desires of your heart, but it never hurt to say it in prayer. It will not fall on deaf ears. Stop paying attention to how much someone else is making doing the same thing and start praying for customers, for financial stability, for peace of mind in trying times, and the knowledge to even make a sale. It's the small things we often over look in prayer because we often just want the end result. Your job doesn't pay you just for being an employee on the books. They pay you because you clocked in, did the job, and clocked out enough times to earn it. When you pray don't forget to mention the little things in between.
