The Devil can defeat an emotional Christian. An informed Christian—one who is aware of his or her covenant rights—cannot be defeated. When you become covenant-minded, God's promises are sure to manifest in your life.

  1. Your prosperity is based on the covenant God made with Abraham (Genesis 12:1-2).
    1. It is because of that covenant that you have been given the power to get wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18-17).
      1. The power comes in the form of insight, revelation, concepts and witty inventions.
    2. An everlasting covenant will produce the desired results, regardless of the circumstances (Psalm 37:18).
    3. Your inheritance is the same as Abraham's (Galatians 3:29).
      1. Abraham became wealthy in the midst of a famine (Genesis 12:9-10; 13:1-2).
      2. The blessing on his life caused him to obtain riches (Proverbs 10:22).
      3. Isaac, Abraham's son, also became wealthy in the midst of a famine (Genesis 26:1-6, 12-13).
        1. His wealth was so great that the Philistines envied him (verse 13).
        2. When you begin to walk in the blessing, or empowerment to prosper, the unsaved people in your life will envy you.
      4. God considered the Israelites a "stiff-necked people" because of their disobedience; however, He still honored the covenant He had with them (Deuteronomy 9:5-6).
  2. God gives wisdom to those who are covenant-minded (Deuteronomy 29:9, AMP).
    1. Wisdom is the principle thing for obtaining wealth and success.
    2. It enables you to know what to do and how to do it.
      1. You will not receive wisdom from God if sin is in your life.
    3. When you decree (declare) a thing, God gives you the wisdom needed to bring it to pass in your life (Job 22:27-30).
      1. You cannot rise above your circumstances until the light (wisdom) comes.
  3. What you don't know about your covenant will cost you (Hosea 4:6). Ignorance is your enemy.
    1. If you are a stranger to your covenant, then you are without hope and without God in this world (Ephesians 2:12).
    2. God's actions are based on your understanding of the covenant.
    3. Prosperity and success only respond to the covenant.
    4. The Bible is a Book of Covenants. By reading it, you learn of your covenant rights.
    5. When you put God in remembrance of His Word, you show that you are aware of your rights.
  4. Do not doubt the covenant when your prayers are not immediately answered.
    1. After Abraham patiently endured, he received the promise (Hebrews 6:13-18).
    2. Allow the covenant promises to be an anchor to your soul.
    3. Plant your seed, wait a little while and then rest assured that your harvest will come (Genesis 8:20-22).
