Topic: The Covenant-Keeping God
God does not only keep covenant with His immediate covenant partners but also with their succeeding generations. Your covenant with God does not only end with you; it continues with your generation.
SCRIPTURE: Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; – Deuteronomy 7:9
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God is faithful to His promises and committed to His covenant.
It is clear from Scriptures that our God is a covenant-keeping God (Deuteronomy 7:9).
God is faithful to His promises and committed to His covenant (Psalms 89:34-36). God does not only keep covenant with His immediate covenant partners but also with their succeeding generations. Your covenant with God does not only end with you; it continues with your generation. That is the mystery of Israel today; the covenant of God with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob implicated them for generational blessings. Covenant has the power to stand the test of times and seasons.
Now, how do you experience the benefits of the covenant?
1 Understand the reliability of the covenant (Deuteronomy 7:9).
Understand the infallibility, unchangeability or trustability of the covenant-keeping God. The covenant is reliable and the Covenant-Keeper is infallible. God cannot lie. He cannot change, and He cannot fail.
2 Understand your role in the covenant and play that role to the best of your ability (Deuteronomy 7:9).
If you are expecting the covenant of supernatural supply for example, to be real in your life, then you must play the role of a giver in tithes, offerings and other forms of giving. You must refuse to be a borrower; you must also refuse to be a waster of resources. Also, if you want God to fulfil His part in defending you, your role is to refuse to fear; decide to speak positively and stay in the secret place of the Almighty.
3 Stay at it for as long as it takes to see the desired result (Deuteronomy 7:9).
Keep doing everything that is expected of you by God for as long as it takes to see desired results. And if you do this, the devil cannot stop you from seeing what God wants you to see.
Today, I decree that the faithfulness of God will be real in your life, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: God is faithful to His promises and committed to His covenant.
Study the Scriptures and listen to the relevant messages until it is clear to you that the covenant is real and reliable.
From the Scripture, identify the covenant of God for your life and the responsibilities attached and begin to work them until they manifest in your life
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for keeping Your covenant always. Help me to do the responsibilities of the covenant, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
