5/4/13 Daily Devotion

Zephaniah 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them on the day of the Lord’s wrath.” In the fire of his jealousy the whole earth will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live on the earth.

While jealousy is a trait that causes us to act inappropriately, it is a trait the God possesses. The Bible declares in numerous places that God is a jealous God, but this does not open the door for it to be expressed within our lives. God is a jealous God, but His jealously is controlled and purposeful, something ours can never be. Why can’t our jealousy be controlled? Our jealousy is like a well watered plant sitting in the perfect room temperature with the perfect amount of light. In others words, our jealousy grows and grows and grows and grows. We have, apart from the power of God, a difficult time containing our jealousy, thus we come to understand the importance of relying on God and living by His precepts.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, teach me not to be a jealous person.
