What Is God Feeling?


Today, let’s take some time to listen to God, working on the UP connection of our faith. Take a few deep breaths. Be aware of your body. And now take a few moments and look over the psalm below and ask yourself two questions, paying close attention to what gets stirred up inside you as you answer them. Talk with God about what comes up for you.

  1. What is God feeling?

  2. What does God desire?

Hear me, my people, and I will warn you—
if you would only listen to me, Israel!
You shall have no foreign god among you;
you shall not worship any god other than me.
I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt.

Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
But my people would not listen to me;
Israel would not submit to me.
So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices.

If my people would only listen to me,
if Israel would only follow my ways,
you would be fed with the finest of wheat;
with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

  • Psalm 81:8-13, 16
