Do not be shaken by the supposed promotion, success and placement of your contemporaries, colleagues, and friends. Regardless of where you are, God is God and your own very times are in His hands. Do not compare yourself to others and feel depressed because they seem to have progressed way beyond you. Do not allow their progress to be a source of depression to and for you but celebrate the goodness of the Lord in the life of others because He is not a respecter of persons. Be happy for others as you also work towards your big picture knowing full well that your life and future is in God’s hands and He will promote you in due time.
