A Covenant God
Psalm 106:44-46 (MSG) Still, when God saw the trouble they were in and heard their cries for help, He remembered his Covenant with them, and, immense with love, took them by the hand. He poured out his mercy on them while their captors looked on, amazed.
Have you ever found yourself in trouble and someone graciously came to your rescue? What a wonderful feeling it is to know we have a God that will rescue us from our troubles when we cry out to Him. He remembers the covenant He has made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His promises are true for us today. Our hearts should always desire to live holy before the Lord but even when we mess up and completely miss the mark, He is there to pull us up out of the path of destruction and guide us back to safety, securely in Him. God does not break His promises, He cannot lie. His word is Truth and we are responsible to know what the promises are. If you haven't grabbed ahold of His promises begin with the below scriptures to start your new journey growing closer to Him. Read them out loud and meditate on them in your quiet time. Ask Him to reveal the depths of each one. He is faithful!
Isaiah 40:31 (NLT) But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Luke 1:72-75 (TPT) Now he has shown us the mercy promised to our ancestors, for he has remembered his holy covenant. He has rescued us from the power of our enemies! This fulfills the sacred oath he made with our father Abraham. Now we can boldly worship God with holy lives, living in purity as priests in his presence every day!
