envy and fear

prayer 2

GENESIS     26         IN       FOCUS

12 Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him.

16 Then Abimelek said to Isaac, “Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us.”

THINK   ABOUT   IT

Why do you envy others?

where are you now?

what can you see now?

 what are you hearing now?

why do you compare yourself to others?

why are you living?

Fear exists; envy is dangerous. The world is living in disintegration because of envy and fear. People are envying people. Fear is controlling us. There exist so many contentions in homes because of envy and fear. When the greatness of others are perceived, envy arises. Why will thou envy your neighbor? God gave a great command to mankind:

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”  Exodus 20:17

Isaac became rich and wealthy but by the blessings of God yet Abimelek did not beseech God for the reasons for Isaac’s blessing but released his emotions on Isaac.

16 Then Abimelek said to Isaac, “Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us.”

I tell you the truth, be not be envious of anything or anybody  with God’s blessings, instead, seek for the blessings of God.

When king Herod heard of the birth of Christ Jesus, he feared.

When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled Matthew 2:3

The blessings of God is always a threat for the common men. They will do all things possible to abort the full realization of God’s blessings upon His children but God will always protect. Paul said :

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ‘  ROMANS 8

fear can produce envy and envy can trigger regretful actions! be watchful!

People will envy and have fear probably because they live below what they see and hear.

PONDER: 

“You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’ 44“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
