… then you will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart…
– Jeremiah 29: 13
Read: Genesis 22: 7-8; Jeremiah 29:12-14
Yesterday, we discussed the key of obedience in unlocking the blessings of the covenant. I want us to look at some more keys today. Radical love and passionate devotion for the things of God usually position us well for God’s blessings. The Bible says when we seek God with all of our hearts, we will find him. We cannot afford to be lukewarm with the things of God or God may display the same attitude toward us. No sacrifice was too big for Abraham to give God, because he loved Him. Abraham had many conversations with God but there is no record anywhere that he murmured against God. He knew how to be thankful even when there seemed to be nothing to be thankful for. Are you the same way or are you a grumbler? Do you silently complain that nobody loves you and you are alone in the world? Do you sometimes insinuate that God’s Word doesn’t work? Well, we’ve all been tempted to do these things. But those attitudes will only isolate us from the blessings of the covenant. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name. Amen. Another important key we must operate in is an ongoing personal revelation of God. People who maximize their covenant walk with God have a deep personal revelation of His person and ability. And the easiest way to acquire that is through spending more quality time in His presence studying His Word and fellowshipping with Him in prayer. Apostle Paul craved a deeper, more intimate relationship with God. And God revealed Himself to him. When you cry out and long for God with a sincere desire and passion, He will reveal himself to you, and His covenant blessings will flow cheaply into your life. I believe you are going higher from today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
