Easter Retreat 2018, Theme: God's Covenant Of Peace And Blessing (Part 1)
TEXT: 2 chronicles 15:1 - 12, 15, 19, Mathew 6:33, Mathew 11:28, John 16:33
Our God being our creator is the master of all things, the father of all (Genesis 1:1, Psalms 24:1, Psalms 115:16, Psalms 121:1), the creator of heaven and earth (Colossians 1:16 - 17); he is the giver of life and peace, the giver of all things. God is unlike any person or community, without God there will be no real blessing or peace.
When there is no presence of God in a family, society or county; there will be dispute, confusion and war. But when we enter into covenant with God in all our heart there will be peace (2 Chronicle 15: 1 - 6).
Maybe what you’re going through now God allowed it because of the broken relationship between you and God, but I assure you as you enter into covenant today with God; those pain or trouble will be no more (2 Chronicle 15:12).
He will never disappoint as many who will enter into covenant with him, there shall be restoration of life, peace and blessings (Joel 2: 22 - 26, John 10:10, 2 Chronicle 7: 13 - 15, Jeremiah 29:11 - 14, Ezekiel 34:25 - 26)
SOME POINTS TO CONSIDER.
1 . THE URGENT NEED OF THIS COVENANT AND REASONS.
When it is clear that our relationship with God is broken, at such time there is need to rush to God and enter into covenant with him (2 Chronicles 7:13 - 14, 2 Chronicles 15:1 - 6).
When we start experiencing evil and misfortunes; In such situation we must return to the Lord. when there is bad situations like poverty, sicknesses, diseases, failures; we should no that God is not happy with us, it is time to seek the lord with all your heart.
We must not run to a place where there is no solution; we must run to our maker in the time of trouble (Isaiah 17:7 - 😎, He is the one that has the solution to all our problem (Psalm 121: 1 - 2, Isaiah 45:22).
When you found things working contrary in you life or family, we should know that the enemy has stepped in because God has turned away (Mathew 13:24 - 28), when this happen we should not waste time to turn to God (Genesis 32:24 - 29, Psalm 62:11. Jeremiah 32:27, Isaiah 43:10 - 13).
We should call upon God in prayer in time of trouble and God will defeat the devil for us (2 Corinthians 10:3 - 6, Joel 2:25 - 26, Ezekiel 34:25 - 26).
After this program there shall be showers of blessings.
2. OUR RESPONSE AND BENEFITS
Everyone invited to this crusade should understand that it is only God that is capable of breaking every yoke, without him we can do nothing (John 15:5). Remember the story of David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17:45 - 50, Exodus 14:13 - 14). no matter the situation in your life or whom that is threatening you; we must report the person to our God through prayers (1 Peter 5:7).
No body can have advantage over you anymore, we cannot talk about permanent peace without the lord (2 Chronicles 15: 12, 19).
Many children of Israel relied upon God in everything and made heaven at last and God blessed them with all things (Genesis 24:1, Psalms 23:1, Philippians 4: 13, 19), thinks about Elijah, Daniel, the three Hebrew children; let us rely upon God and he will see us through in Jesus name.
Let make peace with God and man and peace will always follow us (Romans 8:31 - 32, 2 Chronicle 7: 13 - 15). As we amend our ways; God will hear our prayers (1 Corinthians 3:21, Luke 10: 19). Let us all enter into covenant with God to seek him with all our heart, as we do so; God will enter into covenant of peace and blessings with us in Jesus name.
