You have replaced your love for Me
with that of another.
Your time spent with him
in time and thought
is more than you have given to Me.
Do you not know
that I am a jealous God
and will have no others before Me?
Repent, therefore, and place yourself
before Me once again
in that humbleness of spirit
you once showed years ago.
I need your presence
before Me at all times
so I may be your loving companion.
Only your will can lift
that need for others
or other things
to replace Mine in your heart.
I need your whole love
in heart and mind
and soul and strength.
Be aware of what is happening
and return now to Me.
You shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God,
am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the
children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
but showing mercy to thousands, to
those who love Me and keep My commandments.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your strength.
(Exodus 20:5,6)(Deuteronomy 6:5)
