God Will His Covenant

Deuteronomy 7:7-16

At creation God’s plan of redemption was already in place. Consider Deuteronomy 7:6, “For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.” Delight yourself in the knowledge that you are one of God’s chosen ones!

God graciously reveals His plan. He told His people what would happen if they continued to love and obey Him and the consequences if they did not. Just as we teach our children, God teaches His covenant people–over and over again. He taught them as they went through cycles of sin, punishment, repentance, and forgiveness. Still He teaches us today as we sometimes go through the same cycles.

I can remember sadness on my dad’s face when he had to punish me. He loved me and wanted me to do right, but I didn’t always do it. When I didn’t, I had to be corrected so that I would know the way to go. How sad if I had not been corrected. I learned through those experiences, just as God’s people learned through theirs.
