The Bible mentions a number of covenants, but today we are choosing to focus upon God’s faithfulness in keeping His promises, which is another word for covenants.

I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.  (Gen 9:13 KJV)

The rainbow was a token of God’s promise that He would never again flood the entire earth to destroy it.  We know that He has kept His promise.

Know that the Lord your God is God, the trusted God who faithfully keeps his covenant to the thousandth generation of those who love him and obey his commands.  (Deu 7:9 ISV)

In this verse, the Bible reminds us that God keeps His Word to a thousand generations to those who love Him and are obedient to His commands.  In other words, we can trust God and we can safely rely upon His Word.

“ It is the Lord who goes before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you or forsake you; do not fear or be dismayed.”  (Deu 31:8 RSV)

God goes before us, and He is always with each and every believer.  The Lord will never fail us or reject us, because it is not in His personality to do so.

Now therefore, if you will faithfully obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My special possession out of all the nations, for all the earth is Mine.  (Exod 19:5 MEV)

All of us who obey God’s voice and keep His covenants are His chosen people, and are very precious to Him.  The Lord reminds us in this passage that the whole earth belongs to Him, and everything that is in it.  Rejoice in the fact that you belong to Him!
