I am sharing something very deep this morning. The best way to understand covenant is the game of table tennis; you play your part and God plays His part. If you search the bible you will discover that God made a covenant with men throughout the bible and gave them a part to play; the moment they didn’t play their part there was trouble. The instructions of the covenant are called The Tokens of the Covenant. I will share 3 examples;
1.God told Adam that the day he ate from the tree in the middle of the garden would be the day he would die spiritually. When Adam ate the fruit, he was thrown out of the garden
2. God told Joshua to burn down Jericho and not touch anything in that city but when an Israelite kept something for himself they lost the next battle.
3. God told Samson that he must never shave the seven locks on his head otherwise he would lose his strength; when he did he was captured by his enemies.
God is mindful of covenant and ALWAYS does His part but we usually fail in ours yet God makes grace available but the availability of grace is not for us to continue to violate the covenant.
God has general covenants and personal covenants He makes with people. If God has a personal covenant with you please keep the token of the covenant. For instance God may instruct you to sweep your church every morning and as you do that you notice that your life just moves to another level!
Violating the tokens of the covenant will cause you pain but God is a merciful God. The bible says in Hebrews 12:6 says “The Lord disciplines the one He loves, and He chastens everyone He accepts as His son.”
God deals with you so that next time you will do better.
One of tokens of the covenant I have with God is to write out how much money I spend and make everyday! It may not make sense physically to you but to God it does! God’s instructions never make sense but as you obey you will see wonders.
What are the tokens of the covenant God has with you? Please keep them. May God help us all in Jesus name.
You too can be a social media evangelist. Please share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.
