Questioning God

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 79

As we start Psalm 79 the Israelites are calling out to the Lord. Their situation isn't good. They've gotten out of sync with God and as a result, other nations have come in and defiled God's temple and "laid Jerusalem in ruins" (vs. 1). Then we see these telling words "How long, O Lord? Will you be angry forever? Will your jealousy burn like fire?" (vs. 5).

So what does Psalm 79, and specifically verse 5, show us about God's love and desire to have a relationship with us? Tami

In Psalm 79, it sounds as if they are pleading with God, not to include them with the others who do not worship.

God's jealousy had always been indicative of His wanting relationship with us. He desires undivided loyalty. He is a just God, but His anger lasts only a moment as compared to His unending love for His people. As was the case in this instance, He is constantly seeking to purify His people and make them more like Himself.
