Experiencing the fullness of God’s blessing requires developing the faith necessary to enter into godly rest. You have a covenant with God, and He is
obligated by that covenant to fulfill His promise.

  1. The key to receiving the fullness of God's blessing is to understand how to enter into godly rest.
    1. You must rest from your work, so the blessing can do the work (Hebrew 4:1-10).
      1. God rested on the seventh day, and allowed the blessing to work.
    2. The Word of God won't work without faith.
      1. When you believe God you will rest.

  2. Abraham did not struggle with unbelief (Romans 4:18-21).
    1. Abraham was considered righteous because he believed God (Genesis 15:1-8).
    2. Abraham found hope in His covenant with God (Genesis 15:9-18).
      1. Abraham's expectation was from his covenant.

        2. If you expect nothing, you will get nothing.

  3. As Believers, we must be mindful of our covenant with God.
    1. God is a covenant God; He works through His covenant promises.

    3. Without Christ you are strangers to your covenant (Ephesians 2:12).
      1. Satan wants you to remain ignorant of your covenant, so you'll remain hopeless.
        1. Without the covenant you are limited in receiving resources from Heaven.
