The only way to tap into the promises of God is to understand and practice covenant “details.” God is a covenant-keeping God, and He wants to perform the terms of His covenant; however, you must do your part, which is to believe, obey and rest in Him.

  1. Prosperity only responds to your understanding and practice of covenant details.
    1. What you don’t know and understand about your covenant will cost you (Hosea 4:6).
    2. If you are a stranger to your covenant, then you are without hope and without God in this world (Ephesians 2:11-2).
      1. If you are without hope, then you have no reason to expect anything from God because you cannot hope for something that you do not know exists.
      2. If you are a Christian, you can have hope because you are in covenant with God.
    3. Understanding covenant details is the key to receiving your inheritance.
      1. Ignorance of your covenant limits God.
      2. God acts when you act (on the covenant).
    4. The degree to which you receive God’s Word will be the degree to which you receive the manifestation of His promises in your life.
    5. Prosperity is a covenant issue.
    6. God must fulfill His covenant because He promised to do it.

  2. God has given you the power to get wealth so that He may establish His covenant in the earth (Deuteronomy 8:17-18).
    1. Power is “ability, enablement or anointing.”
    2. Confess that you are anointed by God to get wealth.

  3. The terms of the covenant are twofold.
    1. God has a part to play in the covenant, and so do you (Genesis 26:1-5).
      1. God has already done His part by establishing His promises through Abraham and Jesus.
      2. God’s covenant allows you to partake of His resources.
      3. If you are in covenant with God, whatever belongs to Him belongs to you.
    2. Your part of the covenant is to obey God’s commands (Deuteronomy 10:12-13; Exodus 19:5).
      1. God wants you to obey His Word for your own good.
  4. You can have confidence in the covenant because God swore an oath to Himself to bless and multiply you (Hebrews 6:13); His promises and oaths are immutable and unchangeable (2 Chronicles 15:18).
    1. You must not doubt the covenant even when you don’t see your prayers answered immediately.
    2. In His covenant, God has already given you everything you could ever want, need or desire; therefore, there is no need to continue asking God for what He has already given you.
    3. What you see or don’t see should not stop you from believing and receiving the covenant God has established with you.
    4. Covenant people know how to rest in the promises of God.
      1. Angels are available to assist you in receiving the manifestation of what God has promised, but you must rest in the covenant (2 Chronicles 15:12-15).
      2. Don’t allow anything to disturb your rest.
        1. Abraham and Noah rested in the promises of God for years until they saw the manifestation of what He had promised them.
    5. To obtain the promises of God, you must patiently endure.
      1. Satan wants to take your focus from off your covenant to change your attitude about what God has already said.
      2. Patience does not mean “to put up with;” instead, it means “to be consistently, constantly the same.”
    6. The covenant is designed to anchor your soul to God’s promises.

  5. By meditating on the promises of God daily, you will develop an inner image of the covenant.
    1. When you have developed an inner image, God sees it as a done deal.
    2. Change your vision by meditating on the covenant.
