COVENANTING WITH THE COVENANT KEEPING GOD
Beloved, we have a wonderful and great Father, God Almighty, who delights in making covenants with His people. If you check all through the Bible, you will discover series of covenants God made with His children. He is a covenant keeping God and does not break His Word as noted in Psalm 89:3-4, "I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to My servant David: Your seed I will establish forever, and build up your throne to all generations."
This year 2020, make sure that you enter into a covenant with God for your security, protection and long life. Jesus is our first covenantal gifts God gave to us as noted in Hebrews 8:1-6, “Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the LORD erected, and not man. For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices. Therefore it is necessary that this One also have something to offer. For if He were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer the gifts according to the law; who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, ‘See that you make all things according to the pattern shown you on the mountain. But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.’”
Beloved, this better covenant is God’s promises fulfilled when Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross of Calvary to bring us into a relationship with God and joint heirs with Christ in eternity as noted in Romans 11:26-27, “And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; for this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.’”
My friends, when we surrender to Jesus as our personal LORD and Saviour, God happily makes covenants with us. God has a special plan for each one of our lives and special assignment for each one of us to do. If we obey and allow Him to have His way in our lives, then we will begin to hear Him speak to us through the Holy Spirit. God is a covenant keeping God, just like He did in the past with Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Isaac, Jacob, David, etc. Covenanting with God has numerous benefits, not the least for your security, protection, provision, stability, etc. Make sure that this year 2020, you enter into covenants with God.
