You have God-given strengths and gifts that can be pooled together with other people's strengths and gifts. What a beautiful vision of a world of people peacefully cooperating with each other!
Competitiveness comes from a belief in lack, thinking that we must beat someone else to the prize, or that there's not enough to go around. Yet, what value is the prize if we've lost our inner peace during the competitive process?
God's love is abundant and unlimited, and we mustn't project our insecurities onto believing that God made a limited world. Have faith that God does hear your prayers, and is leading you to the path where you can help others and your needs will be met.
Perhaps you've received an inspired idea for a business which will benefit the world, but you don't know how to do certain aspects of the business. Prayer can lead you to partners who bring these needed gifts, and who compliment your strengths.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, please help me to focus upon you, instead of competing with other people. Thank you for leading me to a cooperative and complimentary partnership.
And here's a supportive scripture: "So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." Matthew 6:31-33
