From whence come wars and fightings among you? Come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2 You want something and you have nothing, then you kill. Covet, and can not obtain; ye fight and war. You have nothing, because ye ask not. 3 You ask and do not receive because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4 You adulterous people, do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be friends in the world is the enemy of God. 5 Do ye think that the scripture says in vain: The Spirit who dwell in us yearns jealously "? 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resists the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God, and he will come to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners, and you double-minded, purify your hearts. 9 I felt the afflicted, mourn and weep: let your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.
James 4:1 and 10
When it comes to jealousy, the first thing we have in mind is that here on earth, jealousy, greed and envy are part of some major arms of the devil, the prince of this world, to sow in the hearts of God's children all sorts of bad feelings with a single goal:
Depart from the grace of God and destroy us.
That's right! It is only what the enemy wants.
However, sometimes we can observe that the word of God speaks of jealousy on the part of God for us, because jealousy is the feeling that just wants to have affection for you that is directed to the other.
What word is telling us is that God loves us so much that He longs, He sighs, he wants the bottom of his heart to get next to Him and loving our precious presence. It always thinking of us free from the clutches of the evil and hands.
However, for the devil, jealousy does not have the same meaning. It uses other negative feelings such as greed (wishing for what it is not legal or that the person does not deserve), envy (not only want what belongs to others, but also want the total destruction of the next to stay with what belongs to others). Within this group of destructive feelings do you get the long-suffering jealousy.
Jealousy, this negative feeling, is born in his own person, it is caused due to a low self esteem (low self-esteem, negative attitude, which is sent by the devil that makes the person was not accepted and do not even like the way what it is. The way God made it) because of that the person living will drop, not giving the ditch, not recognizing the true gift in itself and individual value that God gave each one, just projecting her happiness in another person.
When the person is devalued is someone going against the wishes and feelings that she thinks are missing in her life, she sees the possibility of there, externally, to complete the other person.
Once the person is devalued establishes a relationship with someone else she will incorporate her what belongs to another. So she, in other words, take possession of the qualities and characteristics that the other fears that are pleasant.
All this without the person who realizes it depreciates. When that person realizes or feels threatened that there may be some chance of her losing part of what makes you happy (which is a lie created by herself for what she thinks makes her happy, what she thinks is her actually part of another) it is terribly nervous and upset about it and ends up losing all control of herself and the whole situation. That is not how we behave when someone is trying to take what is ours?
Only if the wrath and anger of the person who will not feel jealousy for those who are "trying to take our own good but for the person to whom we have an affection for the people judge who is she who is in cheating and giving, without the consent of the person is devalued, what was hers to the other. Anyway it is a serious confusion.
I believe it has taken to get an idea of how and why the jealousy enters the life of a person, but we have to keep in mind is that the person is suffering with this kind of negative feeling have to understand that this feeling does not comes from God and that it must cease to exist in her life, and for this to occur there is only one way:
One has to give her life to the Lord Jesus Christ, the True Love of God, because what the person thinks he is advocating for Love is just a feeling that expresses very well his creator the Father of the pride, egotism, selfishness, deceit and destruction. The enemy of our souls the devil.
The Lord Jesus Christ came to destroy all the devil's work. The person will just get rid of this type, and other negative feelings when she her whole heart to surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ and trust him.
Friend! Amiga! Do not be afraid. Put yourself in the hand of the Lord Jesus Christ that he will change your life and make this bad feeling that you're feeling blessing upon blessing.
Only the God who is Love itself will teach man what love really.
Amen! Glory be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
