23 JULY 2018 – 29 JULY 2018
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: DEUTERONOMY 7:9
Good day family; we greet you all in the wonderful Name of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Beloved, this is your season. God in this season is turning around everything for you. He is merciful and He is good. From everlasting to everlasting He remains the same and He remains faithful.
The scripture above, as the Man of God pastor Alph Lukau said, clearly states that the Lord of heaven is God alone. HIV is not God; Cancer is not God. No one, besides God, has the final word in your life. The Word of God says that the Lord is faithful. He does not change. He does not modify what He has spoken. In Psalms 89:34, the Lord Himself says, “My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips.” If we understand this we will not judge or condemn our brothers and sisters. No matter how low you have gone, God does not change His mind about you. God does not say I will use you powerfully today, and tomorrow He changes. We are safe in the womb of His Word and we are safe in the shadow of His promises.
Though you may be in a place where everything around you is shaky, the covenant He has with you is not shaky. His Word is bankable. People can love you today and reject you tomorrow. They can accept you when you do well, and reject you when you do wrong. But God says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” People may not like you but God loves you. They may not accept you but God embraces you. You might have done wrong and put yourself very low, but He has not changed His mind about you. Your life is not exposed, but it is hidden with Christ in God. You will win because God is on your side. When He stands, your enemies are scattered. When Israel was walking through the wilderness they were protected because of the covenant.
Do not place your faith in people; you are not completely safe in the hands of man. Men may be chosen vessels that God may use to bless you, but your faith must be first in God and remain in God. Keep on waiting on God; He will not fail you. He is a covenant keeping God. There are three types of relationships in life that are more binding than others. They are:
1. Biological Relationship
2. Contractual Relationship
3. Covenant Relationship
A covenant relationship is greater than all relationships. It is established through vows. Our relationship with God is a covenant relationship. We were not born connected to Abraham like Jews, but through Jesus we are children of Abraham by covenant. In this new covenant of grace God has lifted us from where we were to where He is. He took our sins away and gave us a new life. In this covenant, God is not close to us; He is in us. Divinity is in us. Jesus said, “If a man loves me, he will keep my Word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling in him.”- John 14:23.
As a child of God you are not just a mere person. You are a saint because of covenant. In this covenant what God has given us is permanent. Because of covenant your righteousness has nothing to do with the good and the bad you do. Our righteousness has to do with the man Jesus.
Though we are all in covenant with God through Jesus, each one of us has a personal relationship with God. God has a covenant with each one of us that determines how He uses us. The level of glory in your life is connected to the covenant you belong to. The level of power that will be made available to anyone at any given time will always be directly linked to covenant. The secret of the power demonstrated is in covenant.
