God's Covenant Word

God works in your life as a believer according to covenant. A covenant includes promises made with an oath that cannot be broken. In ancient times, covenant vows were sealed in the death of a sacrificial animal. God's everlasting covenant with you is sealed in the blood of His Son. God's covenant word simply cannot be changed, because it is forever settled in heaven. It's God's covenant word to you.

Your faith in God, the forgiveness of your sins, your eternal destiny, and God's work in your life is guaranteed through God's sure word. "Forever O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven" (Psalm 119:89). God's covenant word from heaven is recorded in your Bible.

Believers read the covenant promises in the Bible which are forever the same. God has sworn with a covenant oath, and will not repent. He will not change His mind. "God, who cannot lie, promised before time began" (Titus 1:2). What God promised is your assurance.

God has proven His covenant oath for you as a believer in Christ. Jesus is your surety to a covenant word that cannot be broken. The Bible gives you God's word settled in heaven. That's God's sure word to you. Believe and receive all of God's promises. "For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us" (2 Corinthians 1:20). All God's covenant promises are sure.
