Today Reminder - 20 May 2013 (Envy)

A reminder for today
"Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands!" (1 Samuel 18:7)

The people loved David. He was victorious and God was with him all the way. This made Saul angry and jealous. His jealousy drove him to madness as he tried to kill David. 

My dear friend, it is only a matter of time for jealousy to turn into hatred. I guess we all come to a stage where we are envious and we compare ourselves with other. We look at magazines and we wish we could look like someone we see or we compare ourselves to our colleagues and we often envy the one that seems to be so successful and popular. We look back at ourselves and we speak negativity over ourselves and then we start to feel negative and it just seems to snowball from there to anger and hatred.

My dear friend, God made each of us with special care. There is no need for you to be envious of anyone. It all comes down to being contempt with who you are and acceptance of what you can do and cannot do. Focus on the things you are good at and excel at them for when we master our own talents we will be successful even though we struggle at some places. Accepting who you are is the starting blocks for a new you. From here we can focus on the areas we need help with and mastering the areas we are good at. Remember my dearest friend, our God walks on water, defeated death and made the universe. The little things in our lives that we seem struggle with is nothing compared to the unlimited ability of our God. With Him all things are possible. With Him you are possible. 

Follow God’s voice for He will lead you to a great you. Just remember to always give God the glory, because if we remember where it all come from we can never fail.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
