TOPIC: THE COVENANT KEEPING GOD TEXT: 1 KINGS 15:1-8 David, King Abijah's ancestor, was long dead and buried but God continued watching to ensure the fulfillment of the covenant He made with King David. Consequently, Abijah became king, despite his sin and wickedness. This was the exact favour King Solomon had earlier enjoyed (2 Kings 11:9-13). The lesson is therefore worth and emphasising. The God of King David is the same God we serve today, the Father of our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, the covenant keeping God. Invest prayers in God on behalf of your family and future generations and they will never be wasted because our God is a covenant keeping God who lives for ever and ever. Hebrews 7:25 says, "Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them." That is why long after some parents have died, their children would come to the saving knowledge of Christ Jesus our Lord because the eternal God who lives for evermore never allows their prayers to go in vain.
