We just shared that we have a ‘jealous God.’ Someone or something has what He rightfully should have! So many times our wants and desires are focused on various things. We want and need we turn to focus on that which we believe holds promise. This is what it means that we are blessed with a jealous God. Have we ever heard the words “Mine, mine, mine”?
They are uttered by an individual that sees something that is truly theirs or that they want.
We have a jealous God because we were created for a purpose and at times wander off in search of… Just where did I get the notion?
In Exodus 20:5, it is not that God is jealous or envious because someone has something He wants or needs. Exodus 20:4-5 says, “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God…” Notice that God is jealous when someone gives to another something that rightly belongs to Him.
He is also hurt when we turn from Him. He and He alone has supplied all our needs according to His endless Riches in Glory. We sing “Gloria” and do not understand its far reaching meaning.

Sometimes we ask, and do not know how;
“We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And HE who searches our hearts knows the mind of The Spirit, because The Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with The will of God.” Romans 8:27
This says so very much. Do you have a worry? Take it to The LORD in prayer! HE will shield and rest you, just take it to The LORD in prayer!
In those worries and our weakness, “we know that in all things God works for the good of those who Love him, who have been called according to HIS purpose.” Romans 8:28
For we realizing Heavenly Grace and blessings poured out, we know that in our “constrained world with limits” we can say and know that “Thee O LORD, have examined our hearts and know everything about us.” Amen
– Psalms 139:1

Praise ye the LORD. Praise! O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
Blessed be The name of the LORD from this time forth in our lives and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’s name is to be praised.
The LORD is high above all nations, and HIS glory above the heavens. Who is like unto the LORD our God among the stars, who is like unto Thee, Glorious and to be praised. Fearful in wonder, we lay before Thee in frank wonder at all You have done. Father, that You do! In Your fields we receive fullness. Our delight is in You who dwelleth on high, Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in Heaven, and in the Earth!
We have faith and He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; That HE may set him with princes, even with the princes of HIS people. He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD. A resounding HALLELUJAH!!!
