But there is some comparing that's good to do. I read this today:
None can compare with You.
No deeds can compare with Yours.
For who can compare with the Lord? Who is like the Lord?
It's actually a GREAT idea for me to compare things to my God. When I read those verses, I know God says, "Go ahead and put anything you're worried about up next to Me and My promises to you. See how big they seem in comparison to Me."
Is there anything I'm facing that's bigger than He is?
Do I have the one need that He can't meet?
Is there any problem that He's not capable of working out?
I want to make this a habit - comparing stuff with my all-sufficient God. He made it all. He holds it all together. He knows the end of the story. He influences peoples' hearts.
The stuff I'm worried about? It fits in His hand. It's under His authority! It is subject to His plan.
I love that!
