“Yet He hath made with me an everlasting covenant.”-2 Samuel 23: V5
Beloved, you are a covenant child. This covenant is divine in its origin. “HE hath made with me an everlasting covenant.” Oh that great word HE! Stop, stop my soul and listen. God, the everlasting Father, has positively made a covenant with thee. Yes, it is indeed that very same God who spoke the world into existence by a word, the Great ‘I am that I am”, the Greatest God that will ever live, that has covenanted with you. Yes, it is Jehovah God himself that is stooping from His majesty, takes hold of your hand and makes a covenant with you. O what a great deed, the stupendous condescension of which must ravish our hearts forever, this should make us to love God steadfastly.
“HE hath made with me a covenant.” What, this is awesome, that the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords has made a covenant with me. El-Shaddai, the Lord All-sufficient, the Jehovah of ages, the everlasting Elohim, “He hath made with me an everlasting covenant.”
“Yet hath He made with ME an everlasting covenant.” O my soul, this is sweetness itself. He made peace with His covenant for the world and for me! O blessed assurance that Jesus hath made a covenant with me! If God the Holy Ghost gives me assurance of this, then Christ salvation is mine, His heart is mine, He Himself is mine-He is my God and I love Him to bits.
This covenant is everlasting in its duration. An everlasting covenant means a covenant which has no beginning, and which shall never, never end. How sweet amidst all the uncertainties of life, to know that “the covenant of the Lord standeth sure,” and to have God’s
own promise – “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.”.O my soul, I must sing and tell of this, for my heart desireth Yahweh, the only true God. Jehovah God, I love you, love you, love you. Amen!
JESUS LOVES YOU. Start your day with Jesus. Beloved, have a blessed day.
