Keeper of the Covenant

Judges 2:1

…I will never break my covenant with you.

This is a promise made to the children of Israel by an “angel of the LORD”.  When God makes a promise, He keeps it.  Oh, if only humanity lived by that same principle!

We live in the age of covenant breakers.  People get married, only to walk away from their marriages when the going gets a little rough.  People have children, only to abandon and neglect them when they become an inconvenience.  People commit to responsibilities, only to decide a little ways in that the job is a bit more than they anticipated.  These and other examples of going back on one’s word is the stick that that is beating down all hope for promising relationships in the present era.

The good news is that God, the faithful and true God of the Bible, does not go back on His Word.  When He says that He will do it, you can take that promise to the bank.  When He says that He will not leave you, you can always know that He is there.  When He says that He will fight for you, you can know that the battle is already won.  God is the ultimate covenant keeper.

Have you made a covenant with the LORD?  Have you promised Him that you are going to live for Him for the rest of your earthly life?  If you have, then make sure that you do not go back on your word to Him.  He would rather you not make a vow to Him, than to make one and break it.  If you have not made a covenant with Him, it’s time.  He is soon to return, and you do not want to be outside of a relationship with Him when He comes.
