Divine Jealousy

We may not have much invested in our relationship with God, but He has everything invested in His relationship with us. And this covenant relationship God has made with us can be far more intimate than any kind of sexual relationship between human beings.
I say “can be” because it remains a one‐sided relationship until we pursue God. While we can't know Him intimately until we pursue Him, He already knows us better than we know ourselves.
“O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.” (Psalm 139:1b–6 NKJV)
So it's not like He doesn't know us well enough, that when we cheat on Him, He just treats it like a lunch date.
