And I said, O Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, Who keeps covenant, loving-kindness, and mercy for those who love Him and keep His commandments. Nehemiah 1:5 (AMPC)
Our relationship with God is all about an irreversible union and unbroken fellowship with Him.
Faithfulness and unchangeability are inherent in God’s character. He is trustworthy and dependable. Everything God promises to do, He always fulfills. The Word of God is replete with promises God made and fulfilled.
Why then does God make and keep a covenant since He’s by nature already reliable?
Even among men in the making of a covenant, testament, will, contract, or agreement an oath (spoken or written) is taken for confirmation in order to clear, and end all doubt, uncertainty, and dispute.-See Hebrews 6:16.
Likewise God also, in His desire to convince us of the unchangeableness of His purpose and plan, He made a covenant in which He made a promise and took an oath. Hebrews 6:17
God makes and keeps covenant not for His sake, not for Him to remember and be pinned to fulfill what He promised but rather for the purpose of encouraging and strengthening us to lay hold of what He has promised.
Hebrews 6:18 (AMPC) This was so that, by two unchangeable things [His promise and His oath] in which it is impossible for God ever to prove false or deceive us, we who have fled [to Him] for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed for us and set before [us].
Be encouraged and strengthened to focus on and stay with what God said in His Word concerning you as you remember that He’s a covenant keeper.
He made and established that covenant in the Blood of His Son Jesus Christ. God is bound to you by blood, His promises to you are bound to come to pass because of the blood.
God’s help and support for you is always ever covenant sure in any moment and in any situation. You can bank on God to supply and sustain you in all things at all times.
The God we believe in is a covenant keeping God. He is one you can depend on to deliver. Man can change his mind but God will never. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will never fail you.
