God Is Jealous

Posted on January 16, 2013 at 6:55 PM

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!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
