1 Corinthians 13:4

1 Corinthians 13:4

charity envieth not (KJV)

love does not envy (NKJV)

Love is not jealous (NLT)

It does not envy (NIV)

Love never is envious (AMP)

Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. (MESS)

not jealous (CJB)

What does this mean? Well it mean that what someone else has you should not want it.

Examples:

Amy looks at the Williams house and wishes that she had what Emily has. She has the looks, the hair, the cloths, the room. She has cloths that make you think that she pays a $1,000 for all of them. She is always pretty, she always has her hair up, she has a balcony off of her room. She even has a bathroom of her own. I share a room with two of my sisters, I share a bathroom with all my siblings. Yeah all 10 of them. Five brother and four sisters. I always get hand-me-downs. I hate it. I wish I had what Emily has. Well up at the window Emily watches Amy go by and she starts to cry. You see Emily is an only child and has everything that she wants. She wishes she had what Amy had. Siblings, share a room with sisters, share a bathroom, and sooooo much more. Amy was reading the Bible to her sister and read this verse(the one above). She realizes that she was jealous of Emily. So that night when she went to bed she prayed and ask GOD to help her. The next day at school she talked to Emily for the first time and found out that they both had been jealous of each other. Emily stared coming to Church and they became very good friends.

Joy watched as Ed and Melody got into Ed’s car. Joy wanted to be Ed’s girlfriend but she hated Melody for being his girlfriend. Joy’s friend Jack told her that GOD had the right guy for her and that she needed to stop being jealous. So she prayed and believed that GOD had the right guy for her. GOD did 7 years later Jack and Joy got married.

Here are some scriptures that go with this verse.

Exodus 20:17
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.” (NKJV)

Deuteronomy 5:21
 ‘You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife; and you shall not desire your neighbor’s house, his field, his male servant, his female servant, his ox, his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.’ (NKJV)

Challenge:

This week ask GOD to show areas in your life that you are jealous and then ask HIM to help you not be jealous. But just be thankful for what you have.

The past few weeks to a month as been ruff for me. Changes has happened, things gone wrong, stress, etc. But you know what. It is all behind me. I'm not going to lie, it was hard and it hurt. I hate being in a place of struggle. I hate being in the most of things I can't do anything about. But you know what, that is why I have a loving Daddy. Daddy God!!!! He takes care of me and let's me know He is here for me. Yes I do need to reach out to Him and allow He to take over. Need to let Him know that I'm struggling. Yes He already knows but He wants me to tell Him. It may be hard to reach out. It may be hard to admit that I'm struggling but in the end it will all work out. It is all going to be okay. I just want you all to know that God loves you very much and wants to h very much apart of your life. Let Him know that you are struggling. Watch Him turn it around. Let Go peace over come you and Let Him take care of it. 
YOU ARE WORTH IT

The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest. - Exodus 14:14 AMPC

Now may the Lord of peace Himself grant you His peace (the peace of His kingdom) at all times and in all ways [under all circumstances and conditions, whatever comes]. The Lord [be] with you all. - 2 Thessalonians 3:16 AMPC

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. - Philippians 4:6 AMPC

You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. - Isaiah 26:3 AMPC

#thestruggleisreal #gettingreal #journal #bibleverses #bibleverse #Jesus To admit that you are struggling doesn't make you weak. It just means that you are human. But it is what you do while you are in the struggle that  matters. Do you talk about and give the enemy place? Or do you get on you knees and pray it out? What you do really matters!
