Yet …

‘Although my house be not so with God; yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure: for this is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he make it not to grow.’ 2 Samuel 23:5
SUGGESTED FURTHER READING: Jeremiah 31:31–34

Yet he hath made. As every believer has an although, so likewise a yet to balance it. Many are the comforts provided for the children of God, but none like the consideration of this covenant. Observe the parts:
(i) a covenant: an engagement in which the great God condescends to bind himself to performance.
(ii) everlasting: from everlasting in its glorious contrivance, to everlasting in its blessed effects.
(iii) ordered: prepared, disposed. The Lord foresaw whatever would be wanted and has provided accordingly. A fullness of grace, a supply for every want, is treasured up in this blessed covenant, and in a way wonderfully suited for the encouragement and consolation of unworthy sinners.
(iv) sure: not suspended upon uncertain conditions, but established with and in Christ, confirmed by promises, by oath and by blood.
FOR MEDITATION:

Encouraged by thy word
Thy thoughts, thou only wise!
Of promise to the poor;
Our thoughts and ways transcend,
Behold, a beggar, LORD,
Far as the arched skies
Waits at thy mercy’s door!
Above the earth extend:
No hand, no heart, O LORD, but thine,
Such pleas as mine men would not bear,
Can help or pity wants like mine.
But God receives a beggar’s prayer.
