A Morning Prayer: Rid Me of Jealousy
Have you ever gotten jealous of someone or of something that they have? I sure have – a lot! I would rack up my credit cards to purchase an expensive pair of jeans, a designer purse or a fancy dress – just because someone else had it and I wanted it. Jealously is a disease. It turns out heart green and makes us think and act crazy. God wants us to prosper in absolutely every way. But we must not desire anything else more than Him. When we rid ourselves of jealousy, God will know that He is our top priority. He’s not holding out on us. He enjoys blessing us!
A Morning Prayer: God, help me to rearrange my priorities. I want to desire You more than anything else in this world. Show me the areas in my life where covetousness and jealously live. I love you, Lord. Thank you for not holding out on Your blessings for me. Amen
“Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] [Josh. 1:5.]” Hebrews 13:5 AMP
