And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. —Genesis 17:7
We live in a time when a person's word means nothing. Marriages are dissolved daily with no regard to the vows of "till death we do part," and our courts are flooded with lawsuits.
It has not always been this way. In biblical times a covenant, sealed in blood, was a promise of enduring responsibility—never entered into lightly and never disregarded.
This is the kind of relationship we have with God. The entire Bible is a legal contract signed in Jesus' blood! When God said, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee" (Hebrews 13:5), He did not add "maybe" or "if." In covenant with Him, we possess His armor, His weapons, His power, and His victory!
This is the unchangeable fact of His absolute faithfulness! Study the promises of God in the light of His blood covenant and learn how sure and secure the Rock is on which you stand.
Almighty God, You are my hope, fortress, and confidence.
Thank You for your blood covenant that seals my
future forever. I will trust You in every decision.
I will listen to and obey Your voice,
for You alone are faithful. Amen.
