Q&A: Jealousy, Competing & Comparing

"How do you get past jealousy of other women? It is seriously killing me. I just can't stop comparing and competing."

In my experience, the real problem here is that you don’t know who you are in Christ. The only reason a daughter of the most High King would be jealous is if she was believing lies about herself. If you do not know your identity, if you don’t believe you are who God says you are, then you’re going to be comparing and fighting for approval.

When you really dig into the Word and listen to God’s perspective, you get free! Then you can forgive your past and others, see your own value, and even love the things about others that used to make you jealous. You are hidden in Christ. You are a new creation. The freedom this can bring is truly incredible.

Many concepts from the book, “The Supernatural Ways of Royalty” by Kris Vallotton & Bill Johnson would help you, and I’d recommend you read it and verify what it says through your own study in scripture. You need to pray and ask God to give you a deep understanding of true humility (“Humility isn't thinking less of ourselves but thinking of ourselves less” and “Humility has eyes to see the awesome work our God has accomplished in the lives of others”). Then instead of being jealous, you can love and honor other women. It will take hard work, but it will bring you such joy and freedom!
