Jealous Over Us
Today's reading: Psalm 79:1-13
Psalm 79 gives us a glimpse of the Israelites at a time when they were in a difficult circumstance--their country had been overthrown and was being ruled by enemies as a consequence of their turning away from God. As the psalmist writes, he notes that God is a jealous God (vs. 5) and then turns to recognize the people's wrongdoing, proclaim their recommitment to following God and call on God to act on their behalf.
How often do you think about God being "jealous" about your relationship with Him? What does this psalm reveal about God's disciplining love for us? Tami
