Jealous. When you hear that word, what comes to mind? As I read Micah 5:7-15, I couldn't help but notice once again God's desire to have our hearts. He expects us to seek and follow Him completely. In verses 10-15 we see God's disgust and anger with people (here other nations, but Israel did these same things too) going after and seeking everything it seems but Him. All I could think of as I read this was God is indeed jealous and He's jealous for my heart.

So what does God being a jealous God mean to you? And how does that prompt you to respond to Him? Tami W.

When I think of God as being a jealous one, I think it simply means that He wants us to Himself, in a very positive way. He wants to be able to share all of His love with us, while we in turn devote all of our love and our entire self to Him. I see Him asking us to lay aside all earthly desires and treasures for the sake of living for Him and the cause of the Cross. The very idea forces me to re-evaluate my life to see what really matters. What are my priorities? What or who do I put first in my life? Not only do I re-evaluate, but I also then revamp...making sure that all that I do is strictly for the glory of God. What an awesome feeling it is to know that the God of the universe loves you and wants us to only live for Him. We are truly privileged!

Jarrod,

Good comment. I absolutely agree that it is pretty amazing that God, the Almighty God, loves and cares so much for little ole me. How awesome!

I was once told that God loves us so much He can't take his eyes off of us. Makes you think about what you are doing and why.

It means God wants us to Always put him first. Ahead of family, work, money, material things, even ourselves. He created us and wants only the best for us, yet we tend to put everything ahead of God. God is better to us than we are to ourselves, so He has a right to be jealous. Our world would be a better place if all mankind remembered who their creator is and put Him first always.

Good afternoon,
I am touched by each comment made on this page. To be able to Love God in this way....... as he loves us. Something for me to work towards. I know he is still working on me, and I am looking forward to closer relationship with him. Praise God, our Father who is patience with us. I do love him so.... Thanks again P4 Bloggers.
