Covetousness is a sin before God. Covetousness is the strong desire to have something that is not yours.
When you see someone else with a new phone and all you can think about is how to take over the ownership of that phone, you are covetous.
Covetousness leads to stealing or scheming to get things that are not yours.
An example of a covetous person in the Bible was Achan (Joshua 7:1-26 ).
Just because of one covetous fellow amongst the Israelites, God turned His back against the entire nation and they suffered great defeat.
If He could turn His back on the entire nation just because of one covetous fellow, then you can see how much He hates covetousness.
A covetous person cannot experience the grace and favour of God because God will turn His back against such a person.
There are always consequences for being covetous; King David coveted Uriahs wife and a curse was placed on him such that the sword has still not departed from his lineage up till date.
God hates covetousness.
You may desire what belongs to others but pray to God to provide yours for you.
Father, if there is any seed of covetousness in my life, please uproot it now in Jesus name.
WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD
1. When we walk with the Lord
In the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way,
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away,
Not a doubt or a fear,
Not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay,
Not a grief nor a loss,
Not a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.
4. But we never can prove
The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay,
For the favour He shows,
And the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,
What He says we will do,
Where He sends, we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.
