March 8, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – THE COVENANT COMES WITH OPPOSITIONS – Genesis 17:19-21; Deuteronomy 28:7
When you check the Bible very well, you will find one very strange experience – that the carrier of the covenant faces severe opposition from hell. It looks like there is a stage in his life that the carrier of the covenant is deprived of certain things. But the covenant promises you a prescribed outcome in every situation of life.
The devil is always going to find somebody to confront the covenant. Somebody could rise in your business area and choose to fight you. The covenant you are carrying is a covenant of displacement and replacement. The only way that somebody is not going to be displaced by you or replaced by you is for the person to cooperate with you. Anyone that confronts the carrier of the covenant will be displaced by the covenant or you replace that person. That is the covenant position.
Sometimes, we carry covenants differently and we carry understanding differently. Joseph was the one God chose in his family amongst his father’s children. He had a dream and they fought the dream, but it came to pass. If somebody confronts you, the covenant is under obligation to displace and replace that person. Either you are going to replace that person, or He replaces that person with somebody that is going to be your friend as one of the compliance agents.
The covenant says the enemy shall come out against you one way, now the covenant did not say they will not come out against you, but God will arrange the covenant that you carry to change the atmosphere.
PRAYER: I declare, all covenant compliance officers and compliance tools are working towards a predetermined outcome for me in Jesus’ name.
