GOD IS … JEALOUS

DAY 18
GOD IS JEALOUS
God’s jealousy means that God continually seeks to protect his own honour. Jealous has the meaning of being deeply committed to seeking the honour or welfare of someone, whether oneself or someone else. God is possessive/jealous of the worship and service that belong to Him. It is healthy for us spiritually when we settle in our hearts the fact that God deserves all honour and glory from his creation, and that it is right for him to seek this honour. He alone is infinitely worthy of being praised. To realize this fact and to delight in it is to find the secret of true worship.
The jealousy of God for your undivided love and devotion will always have the last say. Whatever lures your affections away from God with deceptive attraction will come back to strip you bare and cut you in pieces. It is a horrifying thing to use your God-given life to commit adultery against the Almighty.
