COVENANT KEEPING GOD Jeremiah 33:20-22

Our God whom we serve is a covenant-keeping God. Covenants are different from promises. God can promise to do something but later renege on it, for example in 1Samuel 2:30 “Therefore the LORD God of Israel says: I said indeed that your house and the house of your father would walk before Me forever.” But now the LORD says: Far be it from Me; for those who honour Me I will honour, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed”. Eli failed to train up his children in the way of the Lord which brought this judgment upon him. on the contrary, God can never violate covenant! He is ever true to covenant from generation to generation.

V 20-22 “Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers. As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me”. God said unless the covenant of day and night can be broken, then the covenant He made with his children can be broken! David was specifically used in the text, despite David’s errors, God still preserved him on the throne. Generations after him committed degree of sins that should make God abandon the family but because of the covenant He made to David, the throne was preserved for him and Jesus came through his lineage.

Because you are born again, you are already in a major covenant with God which you must benefit greatly from. There are a lot of blessings accrued to this covenant you must possess by faith, among which is divine health, long life, prosperity, security, joy, peace, divine provision, protection etc. Also, there are some covenant practices that can open you up more to the divine blessing of God, for example, tithing, offerings, giving to the poor and needy, helping, preaching the gospel, kingdom services etc.

When you enter into covenant with God, it is like entering into a partnership with God in which you stand to gain a lot of things both spiritually and physically, a blessing that transcends even to many generations after. If you have not consciously declared Jesus your personal Lord and Saviour, please do so now. And also you can avail yourself of other covenant practices which are backed by the word of the Lord.

 

Prayer point: Covenant keeping God, please bring to pass all covenant that You have made with my life in Jesus’ name.
