COVENANT KEEPING GOD
Thought for the day: God will never deny His covenant.
We read in the scripture for today about the journey of the Israelites and how God kept the promise He made with Abraham, even till this present age.
Three names are listed here, and I think we should investigate them. I just asked myself a question here: What will I prepare for my next generation?
A man named Abraham sacrificed everything for his generation. He left his father's house; he was a sojourner in a strange land when the Lord told him to go to a land flowing with milk and honey. He built an altar to the Lord in many places to the extent that when his third generation arrived at the location where he built the altar, the presence of God was still fully there. Take a look at what the Bible says about him.
17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb:
20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness Roman 4:17-22
These verses summarize the journey of Abraham. There was no sign that what God told Him would come to pass but he held onto the promise and today through His Seed, Christ Jesus, the nations of the earth are being blessed. ( Genesis 22:18, Galatians 3:29)
Ø Be careful of how you live your life because whatever you do today will count for you and your generations to come.
Ø God is a covenant-keeping God and He will never forget His promises.
Father, I refuse to break the divine covenant you made with me. Help me to abide by your will, in Jesus' name.
