Make Your Covenant

“18 So early in the morning Jacob took the stone that he had put under his head and set it up for a pillar and poured oil on the top of it. 19 He called the name of that place Bethel, but the name of the city was Luz at the first. 20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, 21 so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God, 22 and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God’s house. And of all that you give me I will give a full tenth to you.’” ~ Genesis 28:18-22

Have you noticed that they didn’t refer to God as their God, but as the God of their fathers? God didn’t become their God until they made a covenant with Him. It wasn’t until they were grafted into the blessing. This is how it works for us as well. We are not a part of the blessing or promise until we are grafted in. Until we make that covenant with God for ourselves, He is only the God of our fathers. But once we accept His gift, once we make our covenant, He becomes our God and we become His people. Until this happens, we are only watchers on the outside looking in.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Make Your Covenant.
