When We Choose Envy Or Jealousy

 

You don't hear too many sermons preached on the idea that jealousy and envy are demonic influences from the pit of hell, but they are. Like a loaded gun in the hands of a fool, envy and jealousy are dangerous tools in the enemy's hands intended to steal, kill, and destroy.

If we open our hands and hearts to envy and jealousy, the devil grabs the opportunity to tie up our hopes and dreams and choke the life right out of them. The love of God seizes to operate through us when envy has its way in us. Think about that for a moment.

Instead of moving forward with faith-filled words and actions, we surrender ground in unbelief. When we choose envy or jealousy, we forsake the idea that God is good and knows what's best for us. Living out of a lie is no small matter.

Think about how different our lives would be if we refused the enemy's invitation to be jealous and envious of another woman.

God has a promise in this place for us! God has a desire for us here, but remember so does the devil. We are the ones who cast the deciding vote.With Love,
