October 1, 2019
Lord, as I begin to assess the type of the year 2019 has been for me, I realize that one reason I have not been obedient to Your direction and plans for me is because of my feeling of inadequacy. I just don’t know if I’m good enough to do everything You’ve called, planned and purpose for me to do, so I sit on the sidelines and hope I start feeling better about myself.
In the meantime, one day becomes next week, next month and now next year, and I’m still sitting on the sidelines waiting to feel better about myself. Forgive me!
I need You to beginning uprooting comparison, low self-esteem, feelings of inadequacy and all the other weeds that had grown in spiritual life that are stopping me from moving forward in You.
As I sit down and start planning for 2020, let me do it through the lens for Your word, not my shortcomings. Help me to view my life and operate in my life through Your abundance, not my limits. Lord, help me take my eyes off me and put them on You so I can achieve what You have for me.
I pray, in Jesus name. Amen.
