God is Jealous

God loves us and created us for His purpose.

We were designed for His purpose. We were designed to fellowship with Him and worship Him.

We will never be truly happy unless we are fulfilling that purpose.

When we are doing other things besides what we were designed for, God gets jealous.

When our friends devote more time to other things or people than to us, we get jealous. God gets jealous the same way.

God is jealous of the time we spend falling for Satan’s distractions. God wants us to be free to serve Him. He is tired of Satan having his way with us.

When we fall into sin, God gets angry. He does not want Satan to have us.

Keep your focus on what God has done for you, what He has brought you through, what He has promised you. He will fight for you. He is not about to allow Satan to have you now.

He gives us our daily bread. Ultimately He has sacrificed His Son Jesus that we can be saved and have eternal life.

Let’s listen to what He tells us, what He asks of us. Be obedient to His calling and His will.

What is God saying to you?

Keep Praying and Reading His Word. Be obedient.

Exodus 34:14 NIV Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

Your Choice

If you are living in sin, God is tired of Satan having you. Surrender your life to God. Everyone has sinned and fallen short with Jesus as the only exception. Everyone without exception needs a Savior. Jesus is the only one acceptable to be our Savior. God will set you free from whatever bondage Satan has used to defeat you. God does not care what your life looks like. He does not care how messed up it might be. He is God. He can fix it. No one can fix themselves. No one can make themselves good enough for God no matter what they do. He created us and He can fix us. He loves you and wants to restore you to what He designed you for. He has a purpose for your life. He can heal you no matter what you have gone through. Surrender and reach for Him so that He can restore you. He will reach for you if you reach for Him. If you are willing, He will also be willing. He gives YOU the choice. He has already chosen you. If you choose Him, He will not allow Satan to have you. He will be with you and deliver you.

God Will Fight The Battle For You

Just as God fought for the Israelites in Exodus 14 to free them from their bondage to slavery, He will fight to free you from any bondage you are experiencing. You must be willing to move ahead possibly going through the desert to reach the promised land but it will be worth it. God will go before you but He expects you to ask Him to be with you. Don’t get so comfortable in your sin that you want to turn back as the Israelites considered. Keep going forward. God will help you. You need to keep looking to God and staying in touch with Him by praying and reading His Word. It may be hard at times but cry out to Jesus. He will supply what you need to be free. When you feel that freedom, it will be worth it all. The longer you live with Christ and in that freedom, the sweeter and easier it becomes even when we have a battle to fight. It doesn’t always feel easy in the midst of the battle, but each time you make it through, you realize that God sustained you while making you stronger and increasing you faith.

God Wants You To Be Free

God gives you the freedom to choose the life you want. He has desires for you and knows what you can be but He gives you the choice to be what you want. Christ died on the cross for your sins. You have been given to Christ from God. Christ died to forgive you of the sins that you have committed. He died that you can live eternally with Him. He want you to be free. He did not come to condemn anyone.

We think we are free when we are out there doing what we want but we are actually being deceived. There are many things that control us when we are out there pretending to be free. When we feel the freedom that Christ offers us, we will know the difference.

Don’t be afraid of the light. If you allow the light to expose the darkness, you will feel that freedom. God will be glorified in what He can do for you. He will cleanse you and set you free. You will be free to be what God created you to be and that will bring good stuff into your life. You will see life differently. It will be clear to you. You will be able to live in truth and freedom.

All have sinned so don’t be deceived into thinking you have not. There is no one on this earth that has not sinned. It may be the smallest of lies but you are no better off that the one that has committed a “big” sin. Sin will not be allowed to enter heaven. Everyone is in need of a savior and Christ who was without sin is the only one worthy to save you. Don’t be deceived into believing there is any other way.

Don’t be deceived into believing there is a sin that Christ can’t forgive. Christ can and will forgive you of your sin no matter how “big” you think it is. All you need to do is ask Him for the forgiveness. He will in turn ask you to turn from that sin so that it will no longer control you. You will be forgiven just for the asking. He will do more that you can imagine with your life if you put your trust in Him.
