A New Covenant


God had to give us a new covenant not because the old one wasn’t any good, but because it was broken – and we had broken it.

Jeremiah 31:31-34  

“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord.  “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

God had to give us a new covenant, a new agreement, a new deal, not because the old one wasn’t any good but because the old one was broken – and we had broken it.

So now, instead of requiring a list of do’s and don’ts, we have the important things of God written on our hearts like some spiritual-cardiac-tattoo, that we can refer to any time night or day.

And I believe completely that He uses this imprinting; that He tweaks us with His Word on our hearts when we need to reach out to someone, when we need to change our selves, when we need to listen.

Use this connection we have with Him to talk with Him in everything you are going through.
