December 16th-God is JEALOUS

God is jealous

When we think of jealousy we often think of being envious of someone else’s possessions or success. This is a different kind of jealousy. God is jealous when we look to other things or people for satisfaction. He alone supplies all our needs. He alone is worthy of our praise. He is jealous of our time, our attention, our admiration.

Deuteronomy 4:24 says, “For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.”

Exodus 34:14, “…for you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.”

He alone wants our devotion. He wants our focus and our energy. He wants us to have no other God’s before Him. He is a jealous God.
