Charles Spurgeon inhabits the heart of God. His writings are so right on with God's desires! This post comes from his writings. I have placed a short meditation after each paragraph. You may want to do the same for yourself as it speaks to you.
The Lord is jealous of your love, O believer. Did He choose you? He cannot bear that you should choose another. Did He buy you with His own blood? He cannot endure that you should think that you are your own, or that you belong to this world. He loved you with such a love that He would not stop in Heaven without you; He would sooner die than you should perish, and He cannot endure that anything should stand between your heart's love and Himself.
Jesus, You are jealous of my love. You love me so much You died for me~ Jesus how can I allow the world to draw me away from You? Why do I give in to the tug of the world becoming involved with its perks and problems? I am ashamed. I know the truth, yet still I cannot seem to remain fixed to Your love in my heart. I recognize that my answer to every concern, situation, or challenge always is You Jesus. You love me so completely, You would do anything to help me; so, Jesus, help me be fixed to You!
He is very jealous of your trust. He will not permit you to trust in the arm of the flesh. When we lean upon Him he is glad, but when we transfer our dependence to another, when we rely upon our own wisdom, or the wisdom of a friend-worst of all, when we trust in any works of our own, He is displeased and will chasten us that He may bring us to Himself.
Jesus my trust in You can be total! You are the One Who died to save me. I can trust You to walk safely along every cliff with me, to be a fortress of protection, to heal any part of me that gets broken. I choose to come to You first for any need in my life. Only You can be my source of wisdom for every circumstance.
He is also very jealous of our company. There should be no one that we converse more than Jesus. To commune with the world, to find sufficient solace in our carnal comforts, to prefer even the society of our fellow Christians to secret intercourse with Him...this is grievous to our jealous Lord.
Hello Jesus! It’s good to be with You this morning! Be with me throughout this day leading and guiding, speaking through my mouth and sharing Your thoughts with me. Help me to be aware of Your constant presence.
Let this jealousy which would keep us near to Christ, be also a comfort to us, for if He loves us so much as to care about our love, we can be sure that He will allow nothing to harm us, and will protect us from our enemies.
--Charles Haddon Spurgeon Thank You Jesus! You love me; You lift me up; You protect me from the schemes and lies of the enemy. I love You too!
