“This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. I gave your master’s house to you, and your master’s wives into your arms. I gave you all Israel and Judah. And if all this had been too little, I would have given you even more. Why did you despise the word of the LORD by doing what is evil in his eyes? You struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and took his wife to be your own. You killed him with the sword of the Ammonites” 2 Samuel 12:7-9, NIV.
King David grew increasingly dissatisfied with his life and wanted what another man had. Blinded by his own lust, he conspired to have a man killed just so that he could have his wife. God told King David that He had given him everything he could ever hope for, and would have given him more. It is the same with us, my sister. God will make us great, fulfill our dreams and bless us with everything we can ever hope for, but we can’t have what belongs to someone else. We can’t have another woman’s husband. We can’t have another woman’s family. We can’t have another woman’s life or another’s women’s ministry. We can’t have what belongs to someone else. All we can do is enjoy what God has already given us and be thankful!
Whenever you see something you want that belongs to someone else, take it to God, and say, “Father God, I really like what she has. Instead of wishing I had her blessing, I choose to be thankful for what you have done for me and what you are going to do. I don’t want another woman’s blessing. I only desire what you have tailor-made and designed for me! In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
