4/12 Jealous Longing

James 4:5 …he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us.

He is troubled by the rivalry of the world for our spirit. Like a man for his wife or a wife for her husband, these will not share their spouse with another. Moreover, they will contend with all who pursue their spouse. And the Lord in the same will wrestle for you.

Oh, to be loved so much! What a picture of passion. He desires us. He wants us. He will not let us slip away easily. He will fight to have you and me.

Dwell on this and how He is for you; his passion and emotion to keep you. Be faithful to him and refuse to disappoint him by sharing your spirit with the world.
