Good Afternoon Everybody,
This is day four, you are breaking through the veil of the flesh, and with prayer and fasting, you encounter the breakthrough presence of GOD. Remember the first four to six days you will have to resist the thoughts of food. Drink plenty of water, and you will be fine. Isaiah 58:6 is in motion, and you will see the benefits of it. Hang in there! Today we will talk about ENVY.
A sound heart (spirit) is the life of the flesh; but ENVY [Jealousy] the rottenness of the bones. (Proverbs 14:30)
Envy is a work of the flesh, and it’s evil and malicious
Envy means a hostile feeling toward someone because that person has something — an advantage, a benefit, a position — that the other does not possess but would like to have. This is a feeling toward a person with a perceived advantage is so strong that the one who feels “envy” takes action to remove that person’s advantage in the hope that it will pass on to him. The envious person begrudges what that other person possesses and is covetous of the person’s belongings, accomplishments, relationships, or titles in life. Every time he sees that other person, he inwardly seethes about his success. He deeply resents that person’s blessing and tries to figure out a way to seize it away from the person he envies to make it his own.
Lord, help me the next time I am tempted to get envious over someone else’s blessing or position. Help me to keep my head on straight and not to allow things in my life that will recharge my flesh and stir me up to do things that are sinful or wrong. Forgive me for thinking that I constantly have to be entertained. I’m so sorry that I’ve wasted so much of my time and thrown away so much money on things that don’t matter. I don’t want to be dominated by my flesh anymore. Today I am calling on You to help me break away from my past patterns so I can start on a new and higher path!
I pray this in Jesus’ name!
