1) Never judge your worth by your title or income, God is not a respecter of either. He created you specifically for His purpose, the sooner you accept His will for you, the happier you will be. Comparison is like cancer, it eats at your confidence and joy. Sure you can work to be better, smarter, more efficient but it will never make God happier with you. Find the reason He made you, live it out daily!
2) The most popular Christian song ever written or played (I can only Imagine) was borne out of a horrible story; a drunken father who physically abused his son, yet the son says God changed his dad so dramatically he became his best friend. Don’t judge your pain or difficulty too soon, it may be your loudest testimony!
3) Being content is one of the most important gifts you will ever give yourself. It may not be wrong to “wish for more” but make sure your wishing doesn’t turn into constantly striving to get something God has not promised you. Ps. 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart” Getting it before He provides it will not feel as good as knowing it came from Him at exactly the right time!
4) Don’t waste today, Jesus is not a slave driver but His Word declares you are in a war, it’s for your survival and satisfaction. If you are idle or not content, make sure you are listening for His directions and don’t be surprised if they aren’t more difficult than you would choose on your own. Jesus is looking for followers not just believers!
