You Have a Covenant With God: Are You Fully Taking Advantage of it?

A covenant is described as an agreement, commitment, contract or guarantee. You have a covenant with God. The question is are you fully taking advantage of it?

Here’s another way of looking at your covenant. What if there was a ship laden with everything you need to get along in life? What if you could get access to this ship and take advantage of its substance? Would you swim to get there? Would you consider the task a small price to pay or would you let the ship sail without you?

This ship I describe above is your covenant outlined in the Bible’s more than 3,000 promises. In this agreement, God has given you everything that pertains to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). That means God has already provided whatever you need to prosper spiritually, emotionally, physically, socially and materially.

 

Your covenant with God is outlined in the Bible’s more than 3,000 promises.

 

Unfortunately, you might be missing out because you aren’t willing to do what is necessary to experience the fullness of what God has for you. I don’t know about you but I would love for God to swoop down and make things happen without any effort on my part. But to get access to this covenant requires faith . 

You must act in faith by responding to the prerequisites attached to every promise of God. For instance, Isaiah 1:19 says you must be willing and obedient before eating the good of the land.  

God has attached conditions to His promises because He wants your attention. He wants to develop His character in you. He wants you to build your faith and confidence in Him and help you live out your purpose. If He gave you what you want without any effort on your part, nothing would get accomplished. 

You might believe this is unfair but let’s look at the relationship between a good parent and a child. A good parent will train His child so that he or she grows up to be responsible and productive. That parent will not give that child everything he or she asks for when they want it because they might not be ready to handle the responsibility. 

God is asking you to do your part and trust Him to do His.

Make it your goal to become familiar with your covenant. There are many books that group scriptures together by subject. Search Amazon for these kinds of references. Or, use Google for a list of verses.  

Love,

Karin
