The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning. [John 7:17; 15:15.]”
Psalm 25:14 AMPC
God only reveals His covenant to those who seek for relationship with Him. The more we go after relationship we will realize man was not created for things but things were created by God for man’s use and pleasure. That is why in Genesis , after God created all things He put man into His garden to enjoy.
But he [Abram] said, Lord God, by what shall I know that I shall inherit it? And He said to him, Bring to Me a heifer three years old, a she-goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon. And he brought Him all these and cut them down the middle [into halves] and laid each half opposite the other; but the birds he did not divide. And when the birds of prey swooped down upon the carcasses, Abram drove them away. When the sun was setting, a deep sleep overcame Abram, and a horror (a terror, a shuddering fear) of great darkness assailed and oppressed him. And [God] said to Abram, Know positively that your descendants will be strangers dwelling as temporary residents in a land that is not theirs [Egypt], and they will be slaves there and will be afflicted and oppressed for 400 years. [Fulfilled in Exod. 12:40.] But I will bring judgment on that nation whom they will serve, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. [Acts 7:6, 7.]”
Genesis 15:8-14 AMPC
We see God getting into covenant with Abraham and saying His descendants will be afflicted in Egypt but they shall come out with great possession. All these words of assurance came as a result of Covenant contract God had with Abraham. And in the book of Exodus this covenant was fulfilled and is still being fulfilled in our time because we are spiritually seed of Abraham in Christ.
Thus, we must desire God’s presence and not things and things will follow us.
IF YOU will listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you this day, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God.”
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 AMPC
Desire relationship and abundance and restoration will come chasing you and overtaking you in Jesus name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father thank You for Word. Help me to always desire Your presence more than anything else in my life in Jesus name. Amen
