Understanding your covenant with God and then relating to Him based on that covenant positions you to prosper in every area of your life. You can live in peace and experience increase once you have become as covenant-minded as He is.

  1. There are five foundations for prosperity.
    1. Covenant.
    2. Consecration.
    3. Dedication.
    4. Affection.
    5. Addiction.
  2. You must understand the details of your covenant with God before you can prosper.
    1. You have been given the power to get wealth so that you may do your part to fulfill the covenant that God established with Abraham and his offspring (Deuteronomy 8:17-18).
    2. As a result of his covenant with God, Joseph’s life exemplified what it meant to be empowered to prosper.
    3. Prosperity is a covenant issue; you won’t prosper without a clear understanding of it.

  3. God is a covenant-keeping God.
    1. The Bible is a Book of covenants.
      1. Example: God made covenants with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and others.
    2. God always makes a promise (establishes a covenant), and then carries out His end of the agreement.
    3. Being ignorant of your covenant with God leaves you without hope and without God (Ephesians 2:11-12).
    4. God swore that He would never break or alter His promises because He is bound to His covenant (Psalm 89:34).
    5. You will not worry about negative circumstances or beg God for things when you stand on your covenant right to prosper.
    6. God is serious about the terms of His covenant.
      1. A covenantis “a pledge, promise or oath between two or more parties to carry out terms that are agreed on.”
      2. A blood covenant is much more serious because the breaking of it is punishable by death.
    7. God established a blood covenant with man to assure mankind that He is committed to upholding His end of the covenant.
    8. God is covenant-minded, because the covenant is imprinted on His mind (Psalm 111:5, AMP ).
      1. Because you are in covenant with God, you are blessed and destined for increase (Deuteronomy 6:1-3); therefore, don’t settle for decrease.
      2. You can trust Him because He is mindful of you and your place in the covenant (Psalm 115:9-13).
      3. As long as you relate to God based on the covenant, He is not limited in what He can do in your life.
      4. Remind God of what His covenant Word says, not because He is absentminded; rather, because it shows Him that you are submitting yourself to Him and that you trust His Word.
        1. Moses and Jehoshaphat understood the power of being in covenant with God (Exodus 32:7-14; 2 Chronicles 20:1-13).

  4. You have a part to play in your covenant relationship with God.
    1. Don’t be lazy in possessing your inheritance (Joshua 18:3).
    2. Align your speaking with the covenant regardless of your circumstances.
      1. Example: Abraham refused to waver and speak contrary to God’s promise (Genesis 22:1-5; Romans 4:13, 20-21).
    3. Obedience to God is a requirement; it is what guarantees that you will be a “peculiar treasure” (Exodus 19:3-5).
      1. Abraham showed that loyalty to God is a requirement of the covenant (Genesis 26:1-5).
      2. God can’t do anything in your life if you are not loyal to Him; therefore, make loyalty your ultimate priority.
    4. God requires that you respect Him, walk in His ways, love Him and serve Him with all your heart and soul; this is for yourgood (Deuteronomy 10:12-13).
    5. Don’t continue living in sin, because your covenant with God is not a license to sin.
    6. Obeying and showing reverence to God is a part of worshipping Him on the basis of your covenant with Him (Psalm 96:8-9).
