He is forever mindful of His Covenant, the Word that He commanded for a thousand generations. Psalm 105:8.
He has given food to those who fear Him, He is ever mindful of His Covenant. Psalm 111:5.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
We are in this together. Often you act like I am watching you to see how you perform and your performance is either disappointing Me or pleasing Me. You behave like we are acting totally independently and that I am waiting to see if you will find and do My Will and complete the work I gave you to do and that I am mad at you when you don’t. But that is not the case at all and this mindset will make you live a confused and miserable life because the devil will always point out to you something you did wrong and then when you get over that, something else.
I am in Covenant with you who believe in My Son and have opened the door of your heart to Him. When you did, He came in and dined with you, Revelation 3:20, the Covenant meal, and He gave you His own body and blood. You entered the new and everlasting Covenant sealed in His blood. And now all I have is at your disposal and when you call for help, I must defend you and help you. I am present as your helper. We are doing all you do now together. Jesus told you that when you attached your life to His in Covenant bond, you can do nothing without Him, that does not mean you can do nothing, it just means I am always there so you really can do nothing without Him because He is in you and is right there with you. You can never be alone again. I did not leave you orphans. You can do nothing without Him because He is right there with you to be wisdom for you, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. He is there to fight your battles with you and for you. He is there and I am there, for we are One, and My Spirit is there in you giving you access right to My throne to relay continual advice, counsel, feedback, comfort, and power to you.
In the days of Joshua, covenant was understood very well. It was a bond that could not be broken, and breaking it meant death for the violator of the covenant. The Gibeonites understood covenant so their desire was to make covenant with the approaching Israelites so that they would be under their protection and favor. They tricked Joshua and the Israelites into making covenant with them by lying that they were not inhabitants of the Promised Land, and Joshua made covenant with them to protect them without asking Me first. Joshua 9:14. But once he sealed a covenant with them, Israel could not break it. So when five kings of five nations in the Promised Land heard of this covenant, they went to attack the Gibeonites and destroy them. But as they advanced against them and the battle began, the Gibeonites sent word to Joshua and called on the covenant so that he had to come to protect them and fight for them. Joshua 10:6-8. And Joshua and the army of Israel had to come and fight for them to save them because of the covenant they had made with them. And I gave Joshua an astounding victory, and he was having such success that he wanted to finish the battle before night fell so he spoke to the sun and the moon and stopped the day from ending until he had wiped out the enemies of the Gibeonites, which because of the covenant were his enemies too. Joshua 10:12-14.
Are you beginning to see something? They asked for help and Joshua had to come. The enforced their covenant rights. And so should you for I am ever mindful of My Covenant forever. And what are those rights? Every one of My promises. Just read Psalm 103.
David was very aware that he was in covenant with Me. It made him bold. He called upon Me constantly and I helped David wherever he went. 2 Samuel 8:6. With Me at his right hand, he was never disturbed.
You have My Spirit in you. You have Jesus in you by that same Spirit. And you are My dwelling place and a temple of the Holy Spirit. And by My covenant promises, I am your healer, your provider, your deliverer, your refuge, your peace, your wisdom, your righteousness, your fortress, and your great reward. I have seated you with Me in Christ, we are doing this together. I did not leave you orphans. I never leave you or forsake you. You can do nothing without Me being right there with you.
You are not alone. You are not performing while I watch. I did not send My Son to judge you but to save you. I gave Him to you so that you could live your life through Him. He became poor so by His poverty you can become rich. In other words, He poured out everything in Him to you and in Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Covenant. You own it all.
We are in this together. If anyone comes against you, they are coming against Me and they have already sealed the way it will be. Not good for them but awesome for you. Like when I parted the Red Sea. The Israelites were in covenant with Me, the covenant of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and they had called on Me for help. The Egyptians were not. You do enslave and destroy My covenant people and get away with it.
I am with you. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything make your requests known to Me. I will take care of it for you and with you and through you. Fruit. We are in this together. And all I have is yours. You are with Me always and I am always with you.
David sang about this intimate closeness I have with you in Psalm 139, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there. If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand will lay hold of me.” Psalm 139:7-10. “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. My bones were not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Your eyes have seen my embryo; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.” Psalm 139:13-18. I know when you sit and when you stand, and even before a word is on your tongue, I know the whole of it. With all your ways I am familiar. Psalm 139:1-4.
Life becomes a great adventure instead of a place of dreaded failure when you do it with Me. When you know I am not mad or disappointed but am pulling the load with you, and actually bearing it for you, to make all things come out in your favor your life will settle down in peace beyond understanding. If I am with you who can come against you? They will have to get through Me. And they cannot. There is no snatching out of My hand and in Me the evil one cannot touch you.
You have Me. And I am with you always. Never think you have to do anything alone or on your own strength again. Lean on Me, we are in this together. And I will make sure that you come out the victor. Depression is grieving when you have not lost yet. And if you stick with Me, you will not lose. I always lead you in triumph in Christ.
Whatever Jesus bore, you do not have to bear. He bore your guilt and your shame. He bore your sins and iniquities, He bore you illnesses and pains, He bore your griefs and sorrows. You should not be bearing those. Rebuke them, declare your redemption and healing. Let Me bear your burdens, the things that you carry are burdensome, a load for the weary. You have gone into captivity. But listen to Me, you who are in Covenant with Me, you who have been borne by Me from birth and have been carried from the womb; even to your old age I will be the same, and even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; and I will bear you and I will deliver you. Isaiah 46:1-4.
My desire is to be with you every step of the way. Since I raised Jesus from the dead, He is always walking with you, traveling with you on your journey, like He did with the two disciples on the way to Emmaus. And do you remember what I talked with Moses the most about when he entered the cloud with Me? The plans for the dwelling place so I could travel with the Israelites throughout their journey. I told Moses to take up an offering so that they could construct a sanctuary for Me so that I could dwell among them. Exodus 25:8. They were dwelling in tents, so that is the way I traveled too.
I love you. Never think you are doing life on your own. You are not. We are in this together and I made you. Whatever you are going through I am going through it with you and I am carrying you to safety in My everlasting arms. Keep your eyes on Me and I will direct you, but when I do it is the direction I am going too.
