“Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.” (Romans 13:11–14, NASB95)
“Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19–21, NASB95)
You are letting the enemy poison your mind with jealousy. No one else can take the place I have appointed for you. You have given Me your life. I need you and many other workers also. Do not waste your energies in competition with others. Jealousy is a monster which will poison the whole of your life and destroy your effectiveness to serve Me – if you let it possess you as you have been doing. Let Me direct your life. Give this other person to Me now. When you truly make this surrender, new power will flow through you for the work I have called you to do.
