The Master's Cleanse - Envy

Day Three: E is for Envy
Defined by the dictionary: a feeling of discontent and resentment aroused by and in conjunction with desire for the possessions or qualities of another.

Prayer time focus: my areas of discontentment or envy.
God: the ruler of my world

Proverbs 23:17Do not let your heart envy sinners, but always be zealous for the fear of the LORD.
Proverbs 14:30 “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.”

Practical: On a piece of paper, draw a “tent” like the one below. On the outside of the tent put any items from your list that show a discontented or envious heart. On the tent the opposite kind of heart God wants you to have in these areas.
Prayer time focus: Pray about getting rid of the areas of envy you wrote down. Then focus your prayer on developing the “conTENTment” items you wrote on your tent.

May God fill you with peace and contentment. :D
