Covenant

 

Remember daily
My wonderous works
how I saved
and redeemed you

to tell others
all I have done
and of My covenant
with you.

A laid down life is in a covenant relationship with God.

“Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; talk of all His wonderous works. Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore. Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgements of His mouth. He has remembered His covenant forever.” Psalm 105:2,4,5,8

Last Words

“Although my house is not so with God,
Yet He has made with me an everlasting covenant,
Ordered in all things and secure.
For this is all my salvation and all my desire. . .”  2 Samuel 23:5

Everything wasn’t perfect in David’s world . . .but God was.

Father, thank You for making an everlasting covenant with us through Your Son.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Secured

By Your blood
we are secure

a covenant given
eternal and sure

all things ordered
promised and planned

our salvation, our desire
in the palm of Your hand.

Why Have You Done This?

“I led you up from Egypt and brought you to the land of which I swore to your fathers; and I said, ‘I will never break my covenant with you’.” Judges 2:1
“And you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars. But you have not obeyed My voice. Why have you done this’?” Judges 2:2

Why indeed? I have nothing – no good reasons or excuses – as I come before Him.

Lord, please forgive me for not always walking in obedience to You. I desire to not compromise You in anyway nor accept anything into my life that You don’t want there. And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Other

I remember what You said to me
then doubt I rightly heard

and it’s a dangerous game I play
with such a Holy word

not that You won’t forgive me
not that mercy doesn’t abound

but the thought that I have grieved You
brings me face down on the ground.

Happy Are You

“Happy are you, O Israel:
Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord,
The shield of your help
And the sword of your majesty!” Deuteronomy 33:29

We might watch a movie or read a book about a brave person saving someone of nobility. But how many stories have we read of the poor and downtrodden being saved by a King?

Thank You, Father, for saving Your people Israel and for sending us all a Savior King through them. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Who Is Like You?

We look back and perhaps think
it was no big thing
that Israel entered into a covenant
with their Lord God Almighty

but never before
had such a thing been done
and now we can too
through Jesus Christ His Son.

God To Us

“All of you stand today before the Lord your God. . .that you may enter into covenant with the Lord your God, and into His oath, which the Lord your God makes with you today, that He may establish you today as a people for Himself, and that He may be God to you . . .” Deuteronomy 29:10,12,13

Here in Deuteronomy, Moses is doing his best to make sure the people understand who they are to God and who He is to them.

O Lord, may nothing ever keep me from letting You be God in every way to me. And here’s a simple poem . . .

His Wonders

Come
enter in with Me
step forward
into all that can be
and let Me be
God to you
living out the wonders
only I can create
and do
through you.

The Faithful God

“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him, and keep His commandments.” Deuteronomy 7:9

The God who was faithful and merciful to Israel then is still faithful and merciful to her now. And to us as well.

O Lord, we desire to love You with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

None Like Him

For what God
is like our God
forever faithful
forever true
able to
keep promises
full of love
and mercy too.

Seasoned

“And every offering of your grain offering you shall season with salt, you shall not allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your grain offering. With all your offerings you shall offer salt.” Leviticus 2:13

There is nothing bland about our covenant relationship with God.

Thank You, Jesus, for seasoning us and knowing how to bring out our best flavor . . .glory to You!

Just Right

Seasoned toward perfection
by the Master Chef
lovingly placed upon the fire
and that is where we’re left
to be a sweet aroma
a holy offering
a pleasing sacrifice
to the glory of our King.
