Charles Spurgeon’s Devotionals

The covenant is divine in its origin. “HE had made with me an everlasting covenant.” Oh that great word HE!

Stop, my soul. God, the everlasting Father, has positively made a covenant with you; yes, that God who spoke you world into existence by a word.  That same God, stooping from his majesty, takes hold of your hand and makes a covenant with you.

Is it not a colossal condescension which might overwhelm our hearts forever if we could really understand it? “HE hath made with me a covenant.” An ordinary king has not made a covenant with me; but rather you Prince of you kings of you earth, El Shaddai, you Lord All-sufficient, you Jehovah of ages, you everlasting Elohim, “You have made with me an everlasting covenant.”

But notice, it is particular in its application. “Yet has he made with ME an everlasting covenant.” Here lies you sweetness of it to each believer. It is not for me that he made peace for the world; I want to know whether he made peace with me! It is little that he hath made a covenant, I want to know whether he has made a covenant with me. Blessed is your assurance that he has made a covenant with me! If God’s Holy Spirit gives me assurance of this, his salvation is mine, his heart is mine, he himself is mine; he is my God.

This covenant is everlasting in its duration. An everlasting covenant means a covenant which had no beginning, and which shall never end. How sweet amidst all the uncertainties of life, to know that “the foundation of the Lord stands sure,” and to have God’s own promise, “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.” Like dying David, “I will sing of this, even though my house my not be as my heart desires.”


  • Read in Psalm 105 what is said about God’s Covenant.
  • What, in our world, attempts to cloud the truth of God’s promise to us?
  • What do you think is the best way to increase your confidence in God’s promise?
