March 19, 2023: Committed to the Covenant

Committed to the covenant Commitment is significant to God. His faithfulness exceeds any unfaithfulness. God is steadfast and unmovable in His commitment to us through His written Word. He has established boundaries from the foundation of the world. However, He is also a moving Spirit. He doesn’t always move according to our finite understanding, but this doesn’t mean He has forgotten His Covenant. The children of Israel followed God through an unknown and frightening wilderness that seemed to have no boundaries. They had only a man named Moses to trust, so it seemed. They had to hope he was actually hearing from God. Their only visible sign was a cloud. “Whenever the cloud was lifted from over the tent (tabernacle), afterward the Israelites would set out; and in the place where the cloud stopped, there the Israelites would camp” (Numbers 9:17 AMP). When things got rough, it became difficult for them, despite the signs, and past miracles, to stay committed to their journey to the Promised Land. We must be sure we do not let circumstances cause us to doubt God.

In our humanity, it is easy to fall into a mindset of doubt, which is sin. We are admonished against having an evil heart of unbelief (see Hebrews 3:12). Our power against unbelief comes from consistently seeking God. This means every day until it becomes a habit. This is how we “pray without ceasing.” Our connection with the Spirit and His Perfect Love are essential to overcoming the mindsets that separate us from Him. We cannot keep our covenant with God without this divine connection. Prayer and devotion to His Word help us overcome our fallen nature…We must die daily to our carnality. “But I say, walk habitually in the {Holy} Spirit [seek Him and be responsive to His guidance], and then you will certainly not carry out the desire of the sinful nature [which responds impulsively without regard for God and His precepts] (Galatians 5:AMP). “Walking in the Spirit” implies consistency, treading, and making a path. This requires effort on our part.
