The 7 R’s of Winning the Fight over Jealousy

  1. Realize the Power You Have

God’s Word teaches us that “But if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his spirit what dwelleth in you” [Romans 8:11].

Also, in Acts 1:8, Jesus tells us that “And ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth”.

According to John the Beloved, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” [John 1:12].

The point I want to make is that as a Christian – someone who’s born again, and consequently indwelt by the Holy Spirit – you’re not powerless. The power you have is that of the Holy Spirit. Your duty is to realize that you’re full of power, and live daily with that consciousness.

  1. Realize Your Authority Over the Enemy

Again, God’s Word clearly teaches us that in Christ we’ve absolute authority over the enemy. This came from the mouth of Jesus while speaking to His then followers: “Behold I give unto you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions; and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you” [Luke 10:19].

You see, the word “power” occurs in this verse two times. The first “power” refers to “authority”, while the second “power” means “ability”. What Jesus is saying is that in Him, we’ve authority over all of the enemy’s ability. This, in my opinion, suggests being supernaturally positioned for a lifetime of absolute authority.

Dear friend, you’ve absolute authority over every enemy. Nothing shall hurt you; even someone else’s success isn’t permitted to hurt you.

  1. Realize Your Power Over Oppressive Emotions

Oppressive emotions are negative emotions that are meant to take you away from God. That’s why they’re called oppressive emotions; their duty is to oppress you to a point where you’ll become obsessed. Don’t yield to them because by virtue of your supernatural relationship with Jesus, you’ve been given power over oppressive emotions.

  1. Realize You’ve Been Supernaturally Endowed to Get Wealth

Take a look at this: “But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God, for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth…” [Deuteronomy 8:18].

Did you see that? So, don’t be jealous of another person’s wealth. In Christ God has given you enablement; a supernatural ability to get wealth. You can take what you’ve, use that power [ability] to get what you don’t have [wealth].

  1. Realize and Believe in the Power of Seed

Trust the power of a seed. You’re just one seed away from what you don’t have. I call it “a seed-distance”; just one seed away from your financial, business, marital, academic, career, etc., breakthrough. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked. For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the spirit shall of the spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we saint not. As we have therefore  opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” [Galatians 6:7-10].

  1. Realize the Power of Contentment

Paul told the Christians in Philippi the following: “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, there with to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound; everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me” [Philippians 4:11-13].

He further told Pastor Timothy, “But godliness with contentment is great gain” [Timothy 6:6].

My dear friend, I’d like to remind you that contentment isn’t a mindset of accepting a low standard of living; rather, it’s accepting God as your only source. Contentment is an attitude you’ve to cultivate as a way of winning your fight over jealousy. Learn to trust God as your only source.

  1. Realize Who You’re

The identity crisis is one of the greatest challenges which a lot of people face. Beloved, the way you see yourself will define the way people see you. You’re not an ordinary person; so refuse to be described by your circumstance. The only way you can achieve that is to realize who you’re, and stick to it. God’s Word will help you discover your true identity.

The media has a lot of records of people who have been incarcerated for crimes they didn’t commit. Here, we see people who have been robbed of their best years by issues related to a mistaken identity.

Beloved, unless you understand who you’re before God, Satan will sentence you to a life of worthlessness, fear and manipulation.

Identifying somebody means having the ability to recognize and say exactly who they are. That’s your responsibility; to recognize and say who you’re in the light of God’s Word. Stop identifying yourself with what people say about you that doesn’t correspond to God’s Word. The reason is because when you identify with what people say you’re, which isn’t in line with what God says, you’re setting yourself up for problems.

Life on earth for Jesus wasn’t a bed of roses, yet the reason why He was able to scale through was because He didn’t only know who He was, but He also spoke about it. In John’s record, he tells us the following about what Jesus said: “Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come and whether I go” [John 7:14].

Did you see that? Jesus said: “I know …” meaning He wasn’t guessing. Like Jesus, all you need is to realize who you’re, then go ahead and keep talking about it to yourself and as many who would care to hear. Don’t bother if people don’t seem to show interest in what you’re saying about your true identity; just be sure that you know what you’re saying. I can assure you that such an attitude is going to mark the beginning of your triumph in life.

In summary, all you need are the following 7 things, in order to win the fight over jealousy:

  1. Realize the Power You Have
  2. Realize Your Authority Over the Enemy
  3. Realize Your Power Over Oppressive Emotions
  4. Realize You’ve Been Supernaturally Endowed to Get Wealth
