Topic: God’s Covenant With You Cannot Be Violated [TREM Devotional 23 April 2019]
Read Previous MESSAGES by Bishop Mike Okonkwo
“For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.” Isaiah 54:10 KJV
Jesus was sleeping when there was a storm in Luke chapter 8. He was sleeping in spite of the thunderstorm in the high sea. The billows were tossing high and the tempest was raging. But Jesus was sleeping. He was not panicking. This shows that your life ought not to be filled with panic and anxiety. Be anxious for nothing but in everything through prayer, supplications and thanksgiving, let your request be made known unto God and the peace of God that transcends human understanding will keep your heart and mind. “Thou will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee.”
I see people who feel rejected. I see people who feel there is no way out and who have cancelled themselves out. There are people who are passing through ‘dry season’ in their lives and my heart reaches out to them. You see, if you have an understanding of your covenant, it will help you in every area of your Christian life. The Lord came to cut a covenant with man and to tell mankind that all hope is not lost. He came to tell mankind that He is a covenant keeping God.
Therefore, whatever thing you have given up on or that you have already cancelled out, God is simply telling you that because of Jesus, it will be done. You may say, ‘Brother Mike, you don’t know what the doctors told me.’ Yes, they might have said what they saw which is a fact, but the fact is not the truth. You shall know the truth and the truth you know shall set you free. What is the truth? The truth is that you are in a covenant with God. And the covenant you have with Him cannot be violated or overruled. Child of God, don’t believe the lie of the devil. You may have failed God so many times, but that does not overrule the covenant.
