Day 39: Overcoming Envy With Love


Day 39

Summary Of The Week,

December 3-8, 2012

Overcoming Envy With Love

Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.

Romans 13:13 (NKJV)

Thank the Lord! We have made it to the end of this week of devotionals together. As I think about the topic we’ve developed, we can see how dangerous and harmful jealousy can be in our lives.

Only with the help of the Holy Spirit can we overcome and walk free of envy and jealousy. Let us allow his work to continue in our hearts and let’s remove all barriers.

The following principles are the ones I’ve been able to extract and form in my time with the Lord, and that we’ve read and shared together. In prayer and with the help of the Holy Spirit these truths will shed more light on how we will achieve to walk free of Envy and Jealousy.

I invite you that as part of your devotional today you may meditate on these principles and read the corresponding portion of scripture. My prayer is that through this the Holy Spirit may do a work in your life.

Also, if you desire you may return and read the devotional that corresponds to the principle that is given. Never forget the great value of repetition. For some of us we may have to once again go over one of these principles that we know we must allow God to work on.

Without more to say for the moment, but a prayer so that this time in devotion, the Lord may change and transform us more into his image. Amen.

May you have a glorious tim in the House of the Lord this Sunday,


Pastor Jesus Figueroa
