Trust in Me and in My Word. Imitate Me by keeping your word even when it hurts. In this you will show others you have the integrity of the Holy Spirit living in you.


You may want to sit down for this: Did you know God does not respond to you based on sickness, pain, trials or poverty? He doesn’t. The only thing that causes God to respond to you is His covenant to you – the one He made when you got saved and became part of His spiritual family.

What?!? It’s true. The only reason God acts on your behalf is because He promised to. So what should your response to this be? Trust in His covenant by glorifying Him no matter what is going on in your life!

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. – 1 Corinthians 10:31

Look at how broad the Holy Spirit had Paul write this verse. Whether you are eating, drinking, standing, sitting, laughing, crying, buying or selling, traveling or building, or whether you are doing it all at the same time, do all for the glory of God.

This is a covenant lifestyle driven by a covenant mentality, which produces selflessness and servitude – aka Godly character. A covenant mentality says, “my life is not my own.” It says this when it’s convenient and when it’s not.

You see, Jesus put us first when it was hard, painful and downright deadly. Our needs came before His, so He kept His covenant with Adam and died for our sins. God always keeps His promises.

What about you? Are you a promise keeper with a covenant mindset? Do you trust Him and glorify Him not matter what hell is breaking loose in your life? Purpose to be covenant minded.
