Isaiah 54:9-10

“For this is as the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.”

Are you feeling that the reason you are not seeing the blessings of God manifest in your life is due to some failure on your part? If so, it’s time to change the way you think.

The scripture says “For this is as the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee or rebuke thee. “ This means that God is not angry with you neither is he withholding anything from you to punish you. Why would God go to His extreme (in the death of the cross) and give us His only begotten Son and then turn around and say, I’m not going to give you the basic necessities of life? Or I’m not going to give you the Job you need, the promotion you desire, or heal your body after crushing His Son at the cross? God would not do that. It was enough at Calvary. It was because He was wounded for our transgressions, and bruised for our iniquities that we have the covenant of His peace which He says shall not be removed (Isa. 53:5).

Whenever we blame our failures for what we are not receiving from God, the devil has succeeded in his plan against us. His plan of course is to separate us from our source of power. Therefore, if he can in anyway cause you to focus on yourself and not Christ, he has succeeded in his plan.

God said “For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee…” No matter what happens in life God’s kindness and favor shall not depart from us. This is right thinking which leads to right believing and right believing says God is a good God. Right believing is a good opinion of God. Therefore, don’t confuse your wait for denial rest in God’s covenant of peace with you and believe.
