Text: Nehemiah 1:5
“I said, “I beseech You, O Lord God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who preserves the covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments.”
Having a covenant mentality makes a person aware of his identity and what he or she needs to do to arrive at a rewarding end.
David is a perfect example of a person who had a covenant mentality. He understood he is a person of the covenant with God through his ancestor Abraham and he didn’t just stop at knowing the existence of the covenant but also understood the terms and conditions to activate the benefits of the covenant in his life. (1 Samuel 17:26 AMP).
In this world where conflicts are rampant and trust is scarce, the Covenant Mentality offers a beacon of hope for those seeking stability and reliability in their relationship with God. It demands accountability for one’s commitments while simultaneously fostering reciprocal accountability from God.
God’s words are His covenants between Himself and man and He always keeps to His words. Just as Psalm 89:34 makes us understand that God will not break his covenant, nor alter the thing that has gone out of his lips. In the same way, you can bank on God to do that which He has promised you in as much as you fulfill your end of the agreement (covenant) by doing God’s will according to his righteousness.
In essence, do all that you do for God according to the terms and conditions He has put in place so that you’ll have all the benefits or rewards that come from you doing that which is required of you.
There is always something to do to access that which has been provided (2 Peter 1:3).
