Envy is 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….”
Envy robs you of enjoying what you do have and who God has created you to be.
When you believe the lie of envy, you immediately trade abundant life for an abundant lie.
“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.”
Colossians 2:9-10 NIV
God does not envy. He has everything, he is everything. He is not lacking in any area and he has made all his resources available to you in Christ.
In Christ, you are enough. You are embraced, loved, cherished, equipped, empowered and complete. You have been given access to all that is in God in Jesus.
God’s plan for your life is not to be consumed by envy.
Confess it, take it to the cross, leave it there.
Begin to walk in the fullness of who you are in Christ and leave the emptiness of envy at the cross today.
Don’t waste another second on it.
