How He Loves
By John Mark McMillian
He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
Early in their journey to the Promised Land, God stops Moses and the Israelites so he can provide instructions on living and worship. He calls Moses up on a mountain and inscribes ten covenant rules on two tablets of stone. While Moses is on the mountain, the people become impatient for his return and call on Moses’ brother, Aaron, to make an artificial god out of gold.
