Today's Daily Encounter

Overcoming Jealousy

"So get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all
deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech."1
"And 'don't sin by letting anger control you.' Don’t
let the sun go down while you are still angry, for
anger gives a foothold to the devil."2



Yesterday we spoke about resentment, and today we will
take a moment to talk about jealousy.

Jealousy is almost always the symptom of a deeper
problem; that is, "the fruit of a deeper root." It is
almost always the result of our own sense of insecurity
and/or feelings of inferiority. As a general rule, the
more secure we feel within ourselves, the less likely
we are to have a problem with jealousy.

In other words, to overcome jealousy we need to
overcome our feelings of insecurity. This is the first
step in our process.

Second, as I often say, it is important to learn how to
pray the right prayer. That is, admit to God that you
have a problem with jealousy and instead of asking Him
to simply deliver you from your jealousy, ask Him to
help you see the real cause of your jealousy and help
you to find the help you need to overcome this
problem.

Third, realize that while Satan always wants to defeat
us, he doesn't cause our jealousy. That's our problem
and responsibility. However, keep in mind as the
Apostle pointed out in Ephesians, when we fail to
resolve our anger, we give Satan a foothold. The same
is true with jealousy (and other problems). When you
resolve the cause of your jealousy, Satan loses his
foothold and as such you take away his power to tempt
and defeat you in this area.

Whatever we may be struggling with, God loves us and
has given us victory over sin through His Son Jesus. We
are never alone in our journey.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, with all my problems help
me to see the real cause/s behind these, and find the
help I need to overcome them so I will take away any
and all footholds in my life that leave me open for
Satan to tempt me in these areas. Thank You for hearing
and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus's name,
amen."

1. 1 Peter 2:1 (NLT).
2. Ephesians 4:26-27 (NLT).

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
