The Passion of God

“You must worship no other gods, but only the LORD, for he is a God who is passionate about his relationship with you” (Exodus 34:14, NLT).

Wow.

I read this verse this morning and stopped.

I love the way the NLT puts it. God is passionate about His relationship with me.

Really?

Even when I disregard Him throughout my day, preferring to let my mind wander to the mundane of to-do lists?

Even when I forget all the blessings He sends my way?

Even when I turn away from Him?

Even when I am unlovely?

Thank You God for being passionate about your relationship with me. I want to return the favor, though my heart at times is faithless. Help me, through Your strength, to be passionate about my relationship with You today.
