“I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.”
(Yahweh – Genesis 9:13)
As time passes, the value of covenants is being lost. Examples of this can be found in marriages. Once the declared phrase “till death do us apart” was not just a ritualistic declaration but something that couples adhered and gave weight to, unlike today. All this contributed to a loss of trust globally.
I could see the effects of this loss when I went to apply for a loan to purchase my residence. The endless papers to sign, Notary researches, guarantees etc. All this because a simple promise by word is trivial.
It is not the case with God, when He promises something He never draws away from it. Throughout the scripture we find promises made by God and are still in force to this day. This is so important for each and everyone of us.
The fruit of such kept promises is security, something which this sin infested world can never offer. This is great news to all of us, especially for those who are feeling back stabbed, betrayed and let down. Jesus is the medication to your wounds, He promised that he will never leave you nor forsake you.
So my invitation for you today is to let God’s promises be your life foundation, on which you can build a purposeful life.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your security, thank you for your promises, which are never ending and never failing. In you we have found hope, security, refuge and an everlasting presence in time of need. You are our fountain of life Departing from you is like a branch being severed from the vine. You are the world’s only true hope. We praise you for all this in Jesus Name….Amen.
