Stretch Yourself with Lesson 19
Godly Contentment: Head to Heart Guide
Once you have done the repentance and the prayers, the best practical step of all for defeating envy and jealousy is to stir yourself to move in the exact opposite direction from the way spirits of envy or jealousy want you to go. Therefore, at the slightest feeling of envy when someone is being praised or promoted instead of you, or is displaying their possession of something you wish you had, immediately begin thanking the Lord for blessing them. Keep vigorously praising God for loving them until you sense a victory growing inside. This totally disarms the enemy (envy and jealousy), and opens the way for the Lord to extend blessing to you!
