The Emptiness of Envy

Is envy sabotaging your joy?

Envy is a sneaky thief and the lie at the heart of comparison. It whispers with an incessant voice: “you are not enough”, “you don’t have enough”, “you could be enough if only….”
Proverbs 14: 30 says that “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” (NIV)

My friend, when you believe the whispers of envy, you are trading an abundant life for an abundant lie. In Jesus, you are enough. In Him, you are embraced, loved, cherished, equipped, empowered, and complete.

It is time to take hold of the fullness of who you are in Christ and leave the emptiness of envy at the cross today. God’s plan for your life is not to be consumed by envy.  Confess it, take it to the cross, leave it there. Don’t waste another second on it.
