Perfection On Covenant Sunday
So tomorrow is a day of perfection and completion. It is Covenant Sunday in the Methodist Church and also the first Sunday of 2018. I encourage you to sow a great seed of sacrifice because, you see, 7 means perfection and I feel the Lord saying that He will perfect everything that He has started in our lives this year.
But that’s not the only reason why I am encouraging you to sow a great seed of sacrifice. I am also encouraging you because there are some very serious spiritual benefits when you make a covenant with God and keep your side of the bargain because God will always keep His side of the covenant.
Let me share a testimony with you. Last year, I made a covenant with God during the Covenant Service at the Methodist Church of Resurrection, Kpeehe in Accra. I used God’s word (Genesis 17:1-2 and Exodus 23:25) as the basis for my covenant. I even wrote these verses at the back of the cheque that I wrote as my sacrifice. During the sermon, the Holy Spirit possessed a lady, who rose to her feet and started prophesying in Fante. I knew immediately that it was the Holy Spirit that was speaking through her because of the kind of things the lady was saying. She prophesied that the Lord will see us through the year 2017, and this is the part that stood out for me. She said, “Yes, there may be challenges but know that I, the Lord your God, has already overcome those challenges.” I felt she was talking to me at that time.
I remember this incident vividly because I wrote the account in my journal and added, “In 2017, I know the Lord will make me flourish for His own sake.” I can say boldly that this prophecy came to pass because for me 2017 was a great year of testimony of God’s providence in my life, and yes, He made me flourish for His own sake. Oh, and there were challenges but He kept reminding me that He has overcome them so why am I worried.
So tomorrow I am going to renew my covenant with God, and also ask Him to perfect every good thing He has started in my life. I am ready for another year of testimony in 2018. Are you?
