O God, pagan nations have conquered your land, your special possession. They have defiled your holy Temple and made Jerusalem a heap of ruins. They have left the bodies of your servants as food for the wild animals. Blood has flowed like water all around Jerusalem; no one is left to bury the dead. We are mocked by our neighbors, an object of scorn and derision to those around us. O Lord, how long will you be angry with us? Forever? How long will your jealousy burn like fire? Psalm 79: 1- 5 NLT
If God is a jealous God, then right now think of some things in your life that God may be jealous of:
Your favorite sport?
Where have you put others first over your relationship with God?
God wants you. All of you. Now. Don't make God jealous!
God, help me to stop making you jealous of all the things I give high priority to in my life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
