“May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy.” Colossians 1:11
Have you ever felt jealous of someone?
Maybe of a friend’s brand name shoes,
Or of some great achievement a classmate has done?
Maybe you wished your hair was as pretty as the girl who sits next to you,
Or were jealous of the boy who can run faster than you.
James 4:7 tells us, “Submit yourselves, then, to God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
Jealousy is a tool the devil uses to distract you,
And take your mind off God’s ways too!
We should not worry about what we want
Or what we don’t have.
We should pray and ask God to lead us,
To where He wants us in the way of His plan.
God has wonderful plans for us all up ahead!
Don’t let distractions keep you from where He has led!
You ARE good enough!
You’re fearfully and wonderfully made!
Don’t worry about what others have,
Keep pressing forward to the path Our God has made!
You ARE good enough, sweet friend!
Guess What? Pray to God the instant you feel jealous. It can make you feel more secure about yourself that instant!
Who have you been jealous of? Can you ask God to take away that jealousy?
