What is a Covenant?

A covenant is a deal enacted by God based on well-defined terms and sealed with an oath Heb. 6:13-18; Psa. 89:34.

In essence, it is an agreement God has with an individual, which is based on the individual acceptance to comply with certain demands of God that now makes God to be committed to the prosperity of the individual.

The Power of the Covenant.

The covenant forbids the believer to suffer what the world around him suffer. We saw the covenant exempt the Israelite from all the plague experienced by the Egyptians in Egypt.

  1. i) They were exempted from swam of flies.

This connotes decadence and stench Exo. 8:20-21. This means corruption, tribalism, racism, and other societal evil vices that makes the land to stink and people to detest the land. The Israelite were not affect by all of these, rather they flourish.

  1. ii) They were exempted from death of cattle.

  • iii) They were exempted from hail and tempest mingled with fire.

This implies devastation and destruction, which refer to things like natural disasters like flood, pandemic, fire outbreak, and such likes, which have the power for mass destruction both to human and properties Exo. 9:18-26. In the midst of this, the Israelite were not affected, but prospered.

  1. iv) They were exempted from gross darkness.

This connote frustration, stagnation, and despair, which is like overwhelming situation that leaves people without understanding of what to do again or lack of idea that result into frustration and despair Exo. 10:21-23. In the midst of this, the Israelite were doing great.

  1. v) They were exempted from the plague of sudden death.

This is the climax of the impact of hard times and famine Exo. 11:4-7; 12:29-31. The good news is that the covenant didn’t allow the Israelite to experience sudden death, rather they were multiplying.

Scriptural Proofs that the Covenant is the Cure to Hard Times.

The scriptures make us to understand that famine and hard times are not peculiar to any generation, they are part of every generation Ecc. 1:9. The scriptures show further that in every generation, covenant people prospered in hard times. Consider these examples:

There was famine in the days of Abraham Gen. 12:10. But Abraham prospered in the midst of the hard time Gen. 13:2.

  1. Isaac generation.

There was famine in the days of Isaac Gen. 26:1. But Isaac became prosperous to the extent of being stronger that a nation in the midst of it Gen. 26:12-14.

  1. Jacob’s generation.

There was famines in the days of Jacob Gen. 42:1-2,7. But Jacob was so blessed that he had more than enough money and fruits to give as gifts Gen. 43:1,11-12.

  1. Joseph generation.

There was famine in the days of Joseph as well Gen. 47:15-23. But Joseph was not affected by it, he prospered in the midst of the famine while Egypt suffered devastation Gen. 47:27.

In conclusion, famine is not a strange thing on the earth, we only need to understand what it takes to thrive in the midst of it.
