Our Covenant of Wealth
by Olga Hermans
We have a covenant with God and in that covenant is the guarantee of wealth. These are desperate time for people who do not know their covenant with God; we have to know what is in our covenant. We need to know how much God wants
to bless us, how much He wants to provide for us and how good He is. That provision is all part of what is set before us as it says in Psalm 23 “there is set before us a table in the presence of our enemies.”
You and I can live in these times and we can thrive and not just survive, we can flourish and we’re not going to fail!
2Chron.16:9 says: For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is willing or loyal or perfect toward him.
This is a covenant scripture; the word STRONG in the Hebrew means WEALTH. So, God wants to show His Wealth to us; He wants to demonstrate His Wealth to us.
Our covenant with God is His total commitment to support us, defend us, protect us and provide for us. God wants to provide for us. God has a covenant-passion and a determination. It is rooted in LOVE and it all comes from His LOVE. It comes from that overwhelming Love that He has for you and I to get that to us; it is a demonstration of that LOVE.
There is a covenant demonstration to locate his covenant people and to bless them. He is looking throughout the whole earth. There are people that have rejected it, because they have been taught something different and criticized this teaching. But you know, I want to receive everything that He has for me, what about you?
The devotion that God has toward us is an undying devotion that compels Him to extend Himself to us with everything He is and with everything He has. God is searching and looking for us.
We cannot say in our heart, “my power and the might of mine hand have gotten me this wealth”. NO!! But you shall remember the LORD thy God: for it is He that gives thee power to get wealth that He may establish his covenant which he swore unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Deut 8:17-18
God has given us the POWER to get wealth. That is what the Bible says! Dare to believe God! Why does God give us the power to get wealth? It says “that He may establish his covenant which he swore unto thy fathers”.
We can see that in two ways:
1. To establish His covenant on the earth.
2. To establish His part of the covenant.
So that you and I in these times that we are living in we can thrive. It is because of the covenant that He has with us. Wealth is His part of the covenant.
A covenant is an exchange, we exchange with God in that covenant. Everything that He has and everything that He is, is ours. In that covenant exchange God is compelled to give that to us. We have to learn that in a covenant exchange, we give the other part everything that we have.
We are in covenant with God and He has given us everything that He has, everything that pertains to life and godliness. Life is everything you need! Prosperity is a sign of the covenant. Deut 8:18 NLT says remember the LORD your God. He is the One who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant He confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.
We are symbol of the BLESSING, of the covenant with God in this earth and that is what His wealth upon the earth does. He establishes His covenant on the earth through that wealth and he gets done what He needs to get done. God gives us the wealth in order to establish His covenant by evangelism, preaching and teaching (maybe blogging too 🙂 ) God is looking for people who preach that side of the covenant, who will let you know that it is God’s will for you to walk in His wealth.
I choose to believe the covenant; everything that pertains to life and godliness is in it. If we don’t believe it, who will? God believes in us, so it should be an easy choice for us to believe Him especially because He has written it all down for us to read and to apply it to our life, how easy can it get? Choose to believe!
