God’s Covenantal Friends
I find it fascinating that God took Abraham on a journey where the places He took him helped to tell the story. The most significant place He took Abraham was Hebron. It was so significant that Abraham and Sarah are buried there. The picture meaning of Hebron, not the literal meaning, is “covenantal friendship”. In a covenant, you are all in. Everything you have belongs also to the other forever. This is not a contract. It is a relationship, a friendship. This is how marriage is meant to be.
Adam and Eve are buried at Hebron. God didn’t just want to make people that could serve Him. God had wanted friends; covenantal friends that He could run with and dream with. He wanted an eternal family. I’m reminding us of all this, because sometimes we get in the fray of taking a nation back. We can forget that what God really wants for America, and especially the Church in America, is He wants us to be a nation of His friends in the earth. There’s a war on the earth over God’s dream. Satan is trying to stop it, but God won’t stop, and His friends, the Church, are helping Him do that.
“But you are my servant Israel, Jacob, whom I have chosen, the descendant of Abraham, my dear friend.” (Isaiah 41:8; GWT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Desire to be the friend of God.
- Consider looking up the words “friend”, “covenant”, and “relationship”. Let the revelation sink deep and spend a minute talking to God about this.
- Friends of God have great influence with Him when they pray. Worship Him.
- Pray that President Trump would become friends with the Lord.
- Friends of God have great influence over the enemy. Intercede for the Church to know how to take authority over the enemy’s attacks against our families and this nation.
A prayer you can pray:
God, we want to be your friends. We want to be those You share Your heart with, Your dreams with. We want to help You fulfill Your Dreams. We entered into an eternal covenant with You when we asked Jesus to be the Lord of our lives. You chose us and we chose You. You first loved us, then we responded to that love and we love You. You have changed our lives. You have given us life, and that abundantly. Make President Trump a friend of God and let him join us in defeating every one of America’s foes. We worship You and honor You. We exalt the name of Jesus. You don’t have to mantle us with influence, but You choose to. You have chosen to let Your Church in the earth partner with You to fulfill Your dreams. We want to be those, Lord. Help the Church know how to defeat the evil one in this generation. Raise up those that understand spiritual warfare to teach it and demonstrate it to the next generation. Give us miracles of biblical proportions. We are Yours, Jesus. Amen.
We shall be called the friends of God and we will help God get His dream for America back!
