Updated on December 31, 2009

"Faye's daily words of encouragement"# 101 Todays word is: Jealous"

For I am jealous over you with godly jealous.
For I am jealous over you with godly jealous.

"Faye's daily words of encouragement"# 101 Todays word is: Jealous"

Definition of the word  Jealous: Suspicious of a rival or of one believed to enjoy an advantage, obsessed over attentions and affection given to someone else.

Exodus chapter 20 -5 : Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I , thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

Deuteronomy chapter 6 - 15 : For the Lord thy God is a Jealous God among you) lest the angel of the Lord thy God to be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.

2 Corinthians chapter 11 - 2 : For I am jealous over you with godly jealous: for I have s, and slain by espoused you to one husband, that I may present as a chaste virgin to Christ.

 King 19 - 10 :  And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of host's: for the children of Isreal have forsaken thy covenant thrown down thine altars, and slain by prophets with a sword; and I, even I only, to take it away. 

At one point in our lives; we  all have been around someone that's jealous of us or of our actions, we all know that people, that's jealous; don't you want you involved with other people even if there nothing going on. Jealousy is an action taken; when one person or another is jealous of the attention or affections' we're giving to someone else.  Our God is no difference; He's jealous God, so, we as children of God; should serve God and have no other god before him.

We all should live our lives according to be any reason g his word; so there want be any reason for God 's jealousy to stirred up against us.  Let our love and actions show God that he have no reason to be jealous; because our love and actions is pure and from the heart.

      So true, so true. God is jealous and rightly so, he created all things. Thanks so much for another timely reminder.

      This is a vital hub creativeone, It is important because God will not tolerate one of His children worshiping or bowing down to a God other than Him. This is totally and absolutely unacceptable to Him.

      But, as your said, if we "Let our love and actions show God that he have no reason to be jealous; because our love and actions is pure and from the heart," then we will remain in right relationship with our heavenly Father. God and God only is worthy of our adoration. All glory to His name!

      Forever His

      In the midst of true love, there is no place for jealous. That may be considered as the verdict of God.

      That is one thing I never have. I can't the point. If it is regarding your other half; you couldn't stop them. If it is regarding other people being more successful; well do your best and that is it. So no point because it won't make any difference and it only makes yourselve unhappy.
