“If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind..” (James 3:13-16 NLT)
Hello family, This Morning Coffee really hits home. This past Sunday God con fronted me on jealousy, pride and selfishness, He showed me that they were with in me and needed to be dealt with.
The for a while I’ve been dealing with jealousy toward another brother. God showed it to me when it first started, i thought i dealt with it. but i didn’t. I would try and keep it under wraps but that is not what god wants. How dare i act like everything is ok when it really is not. that is lying to my brother and it is wrong. “For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind” (James 3:16 NLT) If Jealousy is left to take root it will stir up a whole lot of other stuff.
We cannot have jealousy in our hearts and be effective in the kingdom of God. God will show us it in our hearts and we must nip it in the bud. we have nothing to be jealous of, we all have different callings and different times for God to use us. So rejoice when god uses another brother or sister. after all they are just being obedient to God. Jealousy can’t casue us to miss out on what God wants to say to us. it is not about us and it never will be who are we to be jealous!
Part 2 tomorrow
Much Love & God Bless
