Overcoming Jealousy in Your Relationships by Removing Anger from Your Heart
Life is unpredictable
Is it jealousy or justice?
Scripture tells us to remove all jealousy and hatred. We should walk in the spirit and live in peace with everyone.
Jealousy has no place in the heart of the believer.
If you want to be in a better place, then improve your relationships. If you want your circumstances to change, then you'll need to change your attitude. I’ll be honest, it is hard work and it will take some time.
Hostile thoughts and unflattering jealousy leads to judging others. It has been said; don’t judge another person, until you have walked a mile in their shoes. I say, don’t judge another person, period. Judgment is not our responsibility.
We are not accountable for others, they are accountable for themselves. This is difficult but necessary.
You may not approve of what a person does, and you may believe they are wrong in doing it. However, judging that person puts hardness in your heart and it does no good to gossip, mistrust, or judge another person. The Bible teaches us to love the sinner and hate the sin.
There is no room in the believer’s heart for a judgmental attitude.
Study God's Word Daily
We must not be jealous, for everything we need is found in Him.
Scripture says, “For he satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” -Psalm 107:9
By studying the word each day, with prayer and guidance over wisdom to apply these teachings, God will transform your life. Be a part of something bigger than yourself, become a living example. Remove the blinders and open your heart, take a chance on Jesus.
Discover where faith and life meet. Apply everyday principles with trustworthy connections in studying the word. People will abolish you, people will hurl insults at you, and basically people will not understand you. If mockery is your biggest worry, then count your blessings.
Jealousy is the green witch of envy. Persecution over something unreasonable and unlikely, it robs you and imprisons you. A jealous heart is bitter and unscrupulous. Anger and resentments built up over time eat away at the core of your essence. Remove all doubt and jealousy; replace it with honesty and goodwill towards others.
Freedom is known in allowing your life to be a blessing, not a curse, to others.
