I’m Jealous

Psalm 18_2_Lord is rock fortress deliverer

Have you ever found yourself jealous of the relationship someone has with another?  You know the thought, “If only I had that with…”  Ordinarily, that type of coveting is frowned upon.  However, recently, I was reading about the relationship David had with God that made me jealous.  A good jealous I think.  Listen to these words and see if they don’t ignite something within you for more…

“I love you, O Lord, my strength.  The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.” (Psalm 18:1-3)

To David, God was all of these things: his strength, rock, fortress, deliverer, refuge, shield, salvation, and stronghold.  No wonder David responded to Him with a love that resulted in praise.

Personally, I want all of the things David had found – and I believe I can have them – but only by looking in the same place David had looked – in God alone.  This type of unswerving love, strength, support, protection, and deliverance cannot be found in any other person.  It’s actually unfair to expect such from a mere mortal.

But, go ahead and covet what David had – just look to find it through your own unique relationship with God alone. –Dave
