God’s Message to Jeremiah: “Have you heard the saying that’s making the rounds: ‘The two families God chose, Israel and Judah, he disowned’? And have you noticed that my people are treated with contempt, with rumors afoot that there’s nothing to them anymore?
“Well, here’s God’s response: ‘If my covenant with day and night wasn’t in working order, if sky and earth weren’t functioning the way I set them going, then, but only then, you might think I had disowned the descendants of Jacob and of my servant David, and that I wouldn’t set up any of David’s descendants over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But as it is, I will give them back everything they’ve lost. The last word is, I will have mercy on them.’” Jeremiah 33:23-26 Message
As I was reading the above this morning, I thought, they were trying to cancel people back then. But God wasn’t having any of that. He’s a covenant keeping God and therefore, what He said, He will do. I never thought of Him separating the day from the night as a covenant, but His Word is always His covenant.
I don’t know if you’re familiar with the word covenant, but the dictionary defines it as an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do or not do something specified. You see, God doesn’t loosely give His Word. What comes out of His mouth lasts eternally. The covenant He made with Abraham in Genesis 17 is ours as well as his adopted heirs.
No one can cancel you. They can’t cancel your purpose or God’s plans for you. And the great thing about that is, He will give you back everything you lost and have mercy on you. What an absolutely wonderful gift to be a part of such a big family and a Father who always keeps His Word.
My dear friend, I’m thankful you’re a part of my life. I’m thankful you allow me to share a small part of my time with God every morning. I hope you’re encouraged to be all God intended for you to be. Stay connected with the Remnant Bride, keep your lamps trimmed and full of oil. You never know when Jesus will come for you, but you can be ready.
