God's Covenant

"Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;" (I Chronicles 16:15)

David brought the ark of the covenant of God into their midst, but they did not take heed to the Word of God concerning the transportation of the ark. They put the ark on a cart drawn by oxen. The oxen trembled - the driver touched the ark and died. God had clearly given instructions as to how they should carry the ark. They did not obey. The consequence was death. Then they put it in the house of a man called Obed Edom. When David put up a tent for the ark the Levites who had sanctified themselves carried it. David wore a white linen garment and sang a new song. A grateful heart terrorizes Satan. When a woman fears God, she thanks God for all the things in the home. Satan cannot go in there.

"He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes" (I Chronicles 16:21). For generations there will be blessing. God is fighting on your side. You are zealous for His Kingdom and God is zealous about you. He will keep you as the apple of His eye. The food a woman cooks must be a blessing. When she prays she builds a wall around her husband in the office. "... worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness" (I Chronicles 16:29). When will you declare the beauty of holiness?

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts," (Colossians 3:15). Let us be thankful to God. Let us be Levites and carry the ark. Let us rejoice and dance. Let us be thankful to God because He saved us and washed us.

You must watch what sins you inherit from your parents. Let us discard heathen customs. Don't cast your sins into the lap of your children. Satan wants to remind you of your past sins but they are completely washed off. Take courage. Our homes must be free from all the vain traditions of our forefathers.

If doors are closed to the enemy, then take care of the windows. Be careful about your home and children. Remember to thank God for all His benefits.
