The danger when leaders fall into the comparison game.

Scripture
There we saw the giants ( the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.” (‭Numbers‬ ‭13‬:‭33‬ NKJV)

Observation
12 men go into spy the land, 10 saw one thing and 2 saw another.  If we continually compare ourselves to what’s around us, we will miss the plan of God.  Comparisons never work when the Lord is on your side.  He makes up more of the difference than you can imagine. The voices of inadequacy are all around…what about the voice of courage and faith.

Application
When faced with the opportunity to compare…always choose to see Jesus in the picture.  Jesus is why we do what we do, so if he called us, He is big enough to handles what we face.   The comparison game will only plant inadequacy in us, but we are inadequate in light of who God is…this is where faith becomes living and active.  In order to beat the comparison Game…choose to believe in a limitless God! Choose to live by faith.

Prayer
Lord…there is no limit to what you can do.  Help me to see you as the source and walk by faith not by sight.  Too many times we compare our resources to what God is saying or doing and we choose not to step out because we are depending on self.  Lord I want to depend on you!
