God Of Covenant
In Jacob’s dream a ladder was set up on earth and its top reached heaven. The angels of God were ascending and descending this ladder. The Lord stood above it. God was instituting a covenant relationship with and through Jacob. Jacob woke up from the dream and recognised that God was there with him but that he was not aware of it. Even in an awesome moment such as this, Jacob only wanted a transactional relationship with God, whereas God was setting up a covenant relationship with him. Jacob was a deceiver and a transactional relationship was all that he knew. Whereas God was in the process of changing Jacob to become Israel, through whom all families on earth would be blessed.
God is always with us. Angels of God are His messengers to us. Angels of God are carrying our messages to God and bringing His messages back to us. There is never a time when God leaves His children. As it was with Jacob, often we too are not aware that He is with us. We are busy with our own pursuits in life. God is a God of covenant and just as with Jacob, He longs to enter into a covenant relationship with each of us. We too, often, unfortunately, go to God only in a transactional relationship. There are times, when we make God as a means to our end. Whereas God intends a covenant relationship, through which you and I will be totally transformed to conform to the image of His Son.
Will you make a decision today that from now on you will not go to God in a transactional relationship but seek Him in a covenant relationship?
Lord, I seek you and you alone!
Be Blessed Jesus is coming soon
