We are spiritual beings, made for relationship with Him, in covenant with Him. When our spirits are drawn into other involvements, which could be idolatry or worship of any kind, or when we look to anyone or anything else to meet our need for love and acceptance, God is rightly jealous. He wants us to be wholly set apart for Him. He tells us this in Exodus 20:3-5 when he commands us to have no other gods before Him and not to make idols for ourselves, ‘for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God.’
Have you given God cause to be jealous? Is there anything that is drawing you away from Him? He is longing for you to be wholly set apart for Him.
Prayer: Lord, forgive me for the times when I have looked to people or things to satisfy me, when all I need is in You. Thank You that You love me so much that You’re jealous over me. Amen.
