Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Corinthians 10:12(AMP); We do not have the audacity to put ourselves in the same class or compare ourselves with some who [supply testimonials to] commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they lack wisdom and behave like fools.
The wisdom of God teaches a man never to compare himself with another.
Our theme scripture reveals that when a man measures himself against another, it is foolishness.
By the scriptures, we understand that a fool is one who rejects God (Psalm 14:1).
What this means is that every time one compares himself to another man, in the spirit, this is considered as a rejection of God.
God has made you unique, peculiar and different. You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Every time you make another man the standard of your self-worth, you reject what God has specifically and distinctively created you to be.
It is the way of wisdom to understand that you are special in every way and that God has a special plan for your life.
This does not mean that you should not be inspired by those that have gone ahead of you in life. It does not mean that you should not learn from those who have excelled in the field you want to grow in. It doesn’t mean that you should not honour distinctions.
What it means is that you ought to live with the awareness that what God has placed in you is exceptional. He fashioned you for greatness.
His name be praised!

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this day. Thank you for this wisdom that is at work in my life. I live in the consciousness that I am unique, special and different. You have marked me with distinction and crowned me with favour. I stand out in any place that I am because of the special graces that are upon me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
