Our response to this word should be to cast it away from ourselves and to take courage in the Lord.
He is our Protector.
He is our Reward.
We are to look to Him in stable, confident faith – believing that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
This faith is in Jesus Christ and in the promises that He has obligated Himself to perform.
This faith is the righteousness of God which is given to us by grace.
(Ps 3; 2 Cor 8:9; Heb 11:6; Rom 4; Jam 3:14-26; Neh 9:7-8; Num 25:6-13; Ps 106:30-31; Jer 34:17-20; Deut 9:4-6; Lev 18:24, 20:23; Ex 13:21-22, 19:18; Isa 4:5; Ac ts 7:6; Ex 6:14-27, 12:40; Gal 3:15-17; Gen 12:4, 21:12, 47:9)
Jesus Christ became a servant for the truth of God, to confirm the promises, that we might glorify God for His mercy (Rom 15:8-9).
God has established multiple covenants with His creation – specifically with man.
In all His promises we see the high value God places on the life of man, for in the image of God He made man. We see His love. We see His mercy. We see His covering.
Ultimately, we see Jesus. For it is His life in His blood that has been given to us so that our sins may be covered.
Confess your sins, the errors of your way. Forsake them. Receive His mercy. Be saved from death. And know that His love covers all sins.
