The Daily Nosh – Psalms 78:40
How often they rebelled against Him in the wilderness, and grieved Him in the desert. (TLV) Psalms 78:40
Nosh: From our limited perspective here on earth, it’s easy to assume that God sits on His throne in the heavens and doesn’t experience the same feelings we do. However, this verse gives us a peek into the heart of God’s emotions. Our disobedience and rebellion cause God to feel hurt, grief, and loss. I find this encouraging. If God feels all of these negative emotions when I sin, then He must feel the positive emotions of love and happiness when I am obedient to and faithfully serving Him. This infers that I can have a rich and satisfying personal relationship with the Almighty God. Amazing!
