Don’t Compare Insides to Outsides | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotion

,

I was jealous of some other guys, and it was really dumb. Watch and read why.

Game Plan: 

““For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic.” James 3:15, NLT

“Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.” Proverbs 29:25, NIV

Time Out:

Comparison is a toxic mixture of self-centeredness, jealousy and fear of what others think about you. It’s a trap.

Comparison with other people is a losing proposition. If we judge that we are doing better than others, we are feeding arrogance, the root of sin. If we judge that they are doing better, we feed jealousy and discouragement.

Plus, we are notoriously inaccurate at assessing things. We compare our inner turmoil and angst against our inflated picture of other people’s circumstances, not their inner turmoil and challenges.

Comparison is a toxic mixture of self-centeredness, jealousy and fear of what others think about you. It’s a trap.

Go Deep:

How much comparison is there in your life?

Are you jealous and obsessing about what you want your life to be like?

Is there a boss, a peer, friend or family member whose opinion of you and influence on you causes you to worry, compare or be jealous? That is fearing man more than God. You need to be set free. Tell God exactly how you are comparing or fearing. Ask Him to set you free?
