You never have to be jealous again.

“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:12

A woman walks into a restaurant and purchases food for her friends and family. Two women stand nearby as one whispers to the other, “I’m so jealous of her. She bought all of that food for her friends and family.” The friend responds, “Why are you jealous? Look in your hands. You have money. Go in there and purchase some food too!”

Some of us are like this woman. We stand nearby, thinking to ourselves, “Why can’t I have what she has?”

JESUS hears the conversation going on within our hearts and then His Holy Spirit whispers to us the same thing as that friend did. “Look in your hands. You have faith. Go and receive.”

Faith is the currency of the kingdom of God. It’s what we use to purchase and receive all that God has promised us in His WORD. My sister, you never have to be jealous of what another sister used her faith to get from God.

The LORD says He has given to each of us a measure of faith. However, faith alone won’t do it. Just like faith alone won’t take you from a size 25 to a size 10. You’re going to have to do something. Faith is not merely wanting, it is action, but it’s a God-directed action.

It’s time to ask, “LORD what’s your desire for me? What do you want me to have?” And when He reveals it to you, it’s important that you turn your eyes away from what other people have and set your faith on receiving what God has promised you. If you do what He tells you, you will receive His promises in His perfect timing and in His perfect way!

Prayer: Thank you LORD for speaking directly to me. Forgive me for being jealous of others. Forgive me for doubting you. You love me and you want to bless me. Help me LORD to believe. Help me learn how to use my faith and receive from you all that you’ve promised in your perfect timing and in your perfect way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Romans 12:3; Hebrews 11:6)

  1. Thank you Lord for speaking directly to me! A river of tears and a burden was released as I cried out to the Lord tonight while reading this devotion. May the Lord bless your team more! God uses your devotions to always reveal something to me.

  2. I just love these devos and read them daily. I used to be able to print them off daily, somehow something has changed lately and I can’t print them off anymore. Anyway to help make this easier?
