God Keeps His Covenant

Posted by Efoghor Joseph Ezie on 6/20/2010 12:35:00 AM

God is trustworthy: he maintains his word and also respects whatever utterances he makes. He is mindful of his reputation and wants everyone to rely on his word – He keeps his covenant.

When God enters into a covenant with you, he gives himself fully into fulfilling the terms of the agreement. Though he is not compelled to respect the deal, he makes sure he keeps his own part, he does it out of his sincere love and out of respect for his spoken words.

God keeps several kinds of covenant with his children; some of them include:

1.Covenant of blessing: When we show him our sincere love and work in obedience to his word, he enters into an agreement to bless us. He makes sure he keeps to the terms of the agreement. One of the persons who enjoyed this kind of covenant was Noah. We are told in Gen.9:1-3, that God blessed Noah and his sons, and told them to multiply and fill the earth; and because of the existing relationship, Noah and his family were spared when the destructive rain came upon the earth. God blessed him and placed everything at his (Noah’s) command, to eat whatever animal, bird or vegetables he chose to eat. Abraham was also blessed abundantly after God entered into an agreement with him to bless him.

2.Covenant of establishment: When God enters into this kind of covenant with you, he makes sure you are established in every of your endeavors. King David enjoyed this kind of relationship with God and his dynasty of kings was established forever. (2Sam.7:11-16; 1Chr.17:10-14; Ps.89:28). Because of this unending love, David became the source through which the savior of the world, Jesus Christ came; and we all know that Jesus rulership is forever. That is in keeping God’s covenant with King David

3.Covenant of victory: When God establishes such a relationship with you, you will never suffer defeat in the hands of your enemies. He will never let you be humiliated or suffer losses. He keeps you perpetually above your enemies and on top of every situation. King David was a beneficiary and he never lost any battle all his life; even when he chose not to fight back, he still emerged victorious. (1Chr.17:10; Ps.91:14).

Is there anything he has told you he would do for you? Why don’t you trust him? He can never fail to keep his word. He never lies; he is not man that he should lie. He respects his word; he never forgets to do what he says he would do.
