When you are in the dark, listen and God will give you a very precious message. -Oswald Chambers
When I think about making a covenant with the Lord, I remember two scriptures that tell us what God wants from us. Micah 6:8 which says, "But he's already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don't take yourself too seriously—
take God seriously" and the great commission, Love God and Love your neighbor. Along with these instructions from God i'm also reminded of Repentance and Forgiveness which are also essential to a good covenant relationship with GOD.
In the book of Romans we also read that offering up our bodies as a living sacrifice is our REASONABLE service.
My covenant to God is as follows:
Lord, I promise to serve you all the days of my life. I dedicate my hands, my feet, my mouth, my eyes, my ears and my entire life for your service. (Romans 12:1)
I promise to walk humbly, love mercy and seek justice. (Micah6:8)
I promise to live a life of repentance; always being careful to search my heart when things don’t go my way. (2Chronicles 7:14)
I promise to be quick to forgive, not allowing offenses to fester in my heart.
I promise to read your word daily.
I promise to pray daily and without ceasing as you instructed us in your word.
I promise to tell the truth.
I promise to be faithful, that is, be full of Faith, to believe, and hope even when I can’t see in the fogginess of circumstances because it is my Faith that pleases you.
Lord, I promise to Love you and love my neighbor even those who are unloveable.
I promise to take time out to rest in you because you said I should strive to find rest.
I promise to worship you and only you because you are the only and Holy God who saves.
My Sisters and Brothers will you make a covenant with God today? -brisyo
