March 12, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – UNDERSTANDING THE IMPLICATION OF THE COVENANT (2) – Luke 13:11-16
Luke 13:16, “AND OUGHT NOT THIS WOMAN” is a covenant position. What ought to be for you that is not in place, let it come for you now in Jesus’ name! You may have a condition in your body, but if you are a child of God, He is interested in that case.
Remember what Mordecai said, “I am a Jew” – a seed of Abraham. He understood covenant. Our result is supposed to be different from others in human endeavour. If covenant worked for Mordecai, then it must work for you as a spiritual Jew. Mordecai said “I am a Jew”. It’s time for somebody to claim his or her covenant status. Haman wanted to wipe Mordecai and all the Jews out, but he ended up dying. Don’t let that sickness take you out; you should take it out.
Is there something you are agreeing with that is contrary to the covenant? You must change that today. How did David conquer Goliath, by weapon or by covenant? Everything in your life that ought to be, why do you complain when you can change it by the covenant? When you become born again, you are not only bearing your physical father’s surname but also, Abraham’s. I challenge you to take your place as Abraham’s seed like Mordecai did.
Galatians 3:29, “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Can you expect divine results in human endeavour? Yes, on the basis of the covenant. If you are Abraham’s seed, God called him alone, blessed him and increased him; and you also have a portion in that.
PRAYER: I refuse to live below my covenant status henceforth in Jesus’ name. Amen.
