Psalms 105:8 says, “He hath remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to us a thousand generations.”
God set the covenant in place as a means of bringing Himself and his people into a place of dealing with each other in a way that will fulfil His will for His people. If God wants to judge them, they could call on the covenant and the covenant will cause God to be merciful on their behalf. God expects a corresponding remembrance of the covenant by you as a believer.
He warns us never to allow our faith, our confidence and our trust to be switched from Him and His covenant to the blessing. God will bless us, He doesn’t have any problem with blessing people but many times, the blessing of God in the lives of God’s people take them away from God. God wants to prove us and bring us into a place where He can trust us with His blessings. The Bible says, “Those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits.” This speaks of knowing God.
He takes you through some things to bring you to a point where He can confidently say He knows you and He can be assured of your behaviour under any circumstance. God tested Abraham and found out that he will not hide his child from Him. Then he said, “In blessing I will bless you, in multiplying I will multiply you”. God swore to him! When there is a covenant, God wants you to remember that covenant. He doesn’t want us to ever switch our faith from the covenant to something else.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for covenants you have cut with me: in the bible, through my Apostolic joining in the kingdom and personally. I receive a covenant compliant life in all ramifications in Jesus’ name. Amen.
