The Covenant-Maker

God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. -Genesis 1:5

God is revealed, from the beginning, as a covenant-making and covenant-keeping God. Jeremiah referred to God’s activity at creation as acts of covenant (Jer. 33:20), speaking of God’s “covenant with the day” and “covenant with the night.” Through this, God’s unchangeable character is shown to us each day as surely as the sun rises and sets. Jeremiah then goes on to say that God could no more break His covenant of redemption with His people than He could violate His covenant with nature (v. 21). 

God has also made a covenant with all who will believe in, confess, and accept His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. This covenant was sealed with the blood of Calvary’s cross. All that God has promised to do for us, He will fulfill. 

Jeremiah later wrote that the Lord’s mercies are new every day, and His faithfulness is great to us (Lam. 3:22, 23). Praise the Lord today that He keeps His covenant. Just as we are sure that the sun will rise, we are equally as sure of His faithfulness toward us!
