S. O. A. P.
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
Then the angel who was speaking to me said, “Proclaim this word: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘I am very jealous for Jerusalem and Zion.’”
God told Abraham that through him He would make a nation that would be as numerous as the sands of the seashore. From that point on, the people of Israel were … “God’s Chosen People.” And God’s love for Israel was so exhaustive that this verse describes what we already know. He loves Israel with a “Jealous Love.”
When Jesus died and resurrected from the grave to redeem humankind (Gentiles like me), He grafted us into the “Jealous Love” He has for Israel. People of all tribes and faiths and nations are now worthy, if they so choose, to become what Peter the Apostle referred to as a Chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, and a Holy Nation (1 Peter 2:9a). The truth is, Jesus really loves YOU today with a “Jealous Love.” He wants to be your SOLE PROVIDER when it comes to health, resources, financial provision, relationship, victory, and spiritual vitality. After all He is … “Our JEALOUS God.”
Like others I have been lied to and betrayed by people who said … “You can trust me, I love you.” But that has never once been true of YOU. You really do love me with a “Jealous Love.” Amen
