Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming,
but who can stand before jealousy? - Proverbs 27:4
Dear Heavenly Father,
It's comforting to have you show me that you understand how hard it can be for us when others are angry with us, cruel to us or they reject us because they are jealous of our lives. Jealousy is very hard to deal with because the other person feels it's their right to be jealous. They believe they are more deserving of our blessings than we are. Only your Holy Spirit can help them overcome their jealousy by his grace. He must enlighten them to the gifts they are receiving from your hand. Help me to be patient with those who are jealous of me and protect my heart from being jealous of anyone around me. Your blessing in their lives is your business and not mine. It's enough for me to manage the blessings and challenges you have graciously given to me. Give me joy in my own lot in life.
