Do yo have a jealous streak? Are you jealous of others because of who they are, or what they have? Be honest with yourself — what are you jealous of?
We all have have some type of jealousy in our heart, but some jealously is more intense than others. We could be jealous of ones texture of hair, or of ones spouse, or of a persons accomplishments, to the point that it consumes us, and it affects our at-ti-tude, and it shows on the outside with our actions. We begin to verbalize it, then act on it, which is never nice. But when others recognize it, we deny it.
Satan wants to keep you in bondage to himself, and God wants to set you free from satan, from this world and all that satan try’s to offer you.
God is a jealous God. He doesn’t want us to worship others things, or put others and things, before him, which are considered gods. But, this doesn’t mean we should be jealous of others.
Whatever it is that consumes your jealousy, confess it to yourself, and to our Father that you have an issue of jealousy, and He will deliver you from it. Jesus will set you free — indeed!
