#456 - I'm Struggling with Jealousy
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, Your Word teaches us that You are a jealous God. You want humans to honor You as the only true living God. When humans treat someone or something else as god, You are jealous. You are the only true God. You did create human beings to give You honor and glory. When we choose to serve other gods, we are rebelling from you. You certainly have the right to be jealous. Your people, who love you, also have a right to be jealous on behalf of Your honor and glory. Father, help me to be jealous of glory going to anything or anyone other than to you. However, my jealousy may have nothing to do with Your glory and honor. It may have everything to do with my rebellion. Father, I may be jealous because I want what I want when I want it and the other person has what I want and I don't have it. Such a heart attitude reveals that I am living in rebellion from you. Father, expose to me what is the heart of my jealousy. If it is not empowered by a longing for Your glory and honor, please forgive me. Give me contentment and thanksgiving for the things I have. Help me to surrender my life to You so that I am jealous only when something or someone other than You is praised and revered. Amen.
