He is the LORD our God;
his judgments are in all the earth.
Remember his covenant forever,
the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,
the covenant that he made with Abraham,
his sworn promise to Isaac,
which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan,
as your portion for an inheritance.”
—1 Chronicles 16:14-18

These verses are a part of a passage where David was offering thanksgiving to the Lord. In verse 15, we are reminded that God’s covenant is forever and spans over a thousand generations. God has made a covenant with each of us as we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. His covenant is filled with promises and offers forgiveness for our sins. He has provided a way for us to be in close relationship with Him, through Christ. Today, reflect on what that covenant really means in your life and take time to thank Him for His love and faithfulness!
