Our God is a covenant-keeping God! He keeps His promises from generation to generation. He wants you to be faithful to Him and keep your covenants or contracts too.
On Monday, May 30th, at sundown starts the very special Hebrew month of Sivan. This is the month when the Lord came upon Mount Sinai and gave the Ten Commandments. It’s an important time to understand that the Word of God is representative of who God is and His heart for us, His treasured people.
On Mount Sinai, the Lord shared His flawless character of who He is. He is a God of justice, righteousness and love. He longs for you to follow after the covenant commandments He gave way back then.
Exodus 19:3-6 says, “Then Moses climbed the mountain to appear before God. The Lord called to him from the mountain and said, ‘Give these instructions to the family of Jacob; announce it to the descendants of Israel: You have seen what I did to the Egyptians. You know how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Now if you will obey Me and keep My covenant, you will be My own special treasure from among all the peoples on earth; for all the earth belongs to Me. And you will be My kingdom of priests, My holy nation.’ This is the message you must give to the people of Israel.”
God has not changed. He gave us His Word. He gave us, “The Word”, which is Jesus Christ Himself, who walked the earth. God keeps His covenants! As we are His children we are to keep covenants and contracts too.
What is a covenant? It is a binding agreement that God makes with His people by Word and also ratified by blood. Hebrews 13:20-21 (KJV) reads, “ Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
Now prophetically what does all this mean for us in the month of Sivan in 2022? God is speaking that just as the Israelites received the Ten Commandments and were proved, tried or tested in keeping them. You will be tested in keeping your contracts or your binding agreements. If you are under a specific binding agreement, now is the time to determine to keep your contract and walk in righteousness. I understand that some contracts cannot continue because seasons have changed and you are transitioning. If this is the case, pray and ask the Lord for the wisdom to renegotiate or even release you from the contract. Even this is a test, to just be righteous enough to end the contract correctly. Go talk with those you are bound to in contract. Do not be afraid. It is time to raise your faith level and trust God even for keeping, ending or renegotiation of a contract agreement.
See, the enemy gets a foothold and develops a stronghold when we aren’t doing what we should be doing or fulling our contracts. When we simply abandon contracts without proper closure this opens enemy portals. What happens is our disobedience or fear will open a door that lets demonic forces come in and affect our sleep and cause more guilt, fear, anxiety and depression. You do NOT want any open doors for the enemy in your life. Close them! If you need to move on from some contracts, then move on! If you need to renegotiate your commitment to a contract, have faith that God will help you step into your destiny through a renegotiation and give you favor with the others in the contract. The battle belongs to the Lord! God is calling us to be set apart as a holy nation and our, “Yes be Yes and our No be No.” (Matthew 5:37) God will bless you beyond measure when you keep His commandments and when you keep your contracts.
