There is torment in the worldly life. There are nights of tossing and turning. There are onslaughts from the enemy; spirits of torment sent to break us down. We cry and we sob. We scream and we yell. We hurt and we ache.  We’re crippled by pain.

But we shall stand. We shall proclaim the Word of the Lord and the Word shall not return to us unfulfilled:

  • No weapon formed against us shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17)
  • We shall not be afraid of the terrors of night nor the attacks of day (Psalms 91:5)
  • No evil shall befall us nor pestilence come near our home (Psalm 91:10)
  • All things work together for our good (Romans 8:28)
  • God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Tim 1:7)
  • God is with us, He will strengthen us, and uphold us in His righteous hand (Isaiah 41:10)
  • We will enter into peace and rest in our beds (Isaiah 57:2)
  • God will guide us continually and satisfy our souls in drought (Isaiah 59:11)

These are the covenant promises of God. He can no more break His covenant than He can cease to exist. But we must remember that a covenant is a two sided agreement.  We must remember our end of the agreement (to submit to the Word of God) in order for God to fulfill His. For the Word also warns:

Isaiah 59:2 ( NKJV )    But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
And your sins have hidden His face from you,
So that He will not hear.

If we honor the covenant, the covenant promises are ours.
