God honors covenant. Covenant is an agreement between two parties. The entire Bible is based on this concept. We can never understand the depth of God’s love without understanding the importance of covenant.
God’s love for us is guaranteed by His unrelenting commitment to His covenant with humanity. When someone enters a covenant, they agree to certain terms and conditions in exchange for something of value. Once a covenant/contract is established, it is binding on both parties. God has integrity and will never break a covenant.
When God established His covenant with Israel, His expectation was that they would remain faithful to Him and honor each other. In response, God would protect and provide for Israel. God kept His part of the covenant but Israel didn’t. So, because God doesn’t give up on His covenant, He patiently waited for Israel to turn back.
Recognize your covenant with God. Honor Him and love people and watch God do more for you than you could ever imagine!
