“Gather My saints together to Me,
Those who have made a covenant with Me
by sacrifice” (Ps. 50:5 NKJV)
Fruitfulness in every area of our lives, is the birth right of a child of God (Gen. 1: 27-28). As a child of God, we have been designed not only to be a success but to also live above all circumstances and situations. We were created to overcome (1 John 4:4), for we are more than conquerors (Rom. 8:37).
For us to be fruitful, God has entered into a covenant relationship with us. When we obey the voice of the Lord and we are careful to observe His commandments, the blessings of God which He has promised, is then our portion to access and claim (Deut. 28: 1-2). God cannot lie (Num. 23:19), for He has the capacity to keep and deliver on all His promises towards us (Heb. 6:13).
In 2017, we must begin to live in the consciousness that we are in a covenant relationship with God (Gal. 3:29). We must have an understanding of what God expects from us (Prov. 25:2) in order to activate and walk in this relationship with Him. We must also have the knowledge of not only how to activate the covenant, but also how to operate it (Lev. 25:18, 26:3-4).
For us to walk in the covenant blessings of God, we must remember that its activation is dependent and based on knowledge (Hos. 4:6 and Isa. 53:11) and the truth (John 8:32). We must be prepared not only to serve God with the right heart (2 Chr. 25:2) but also to believe His word over any other report.
We must be ready to set ourselves apart from the multitude (Gen. 12:1), and align our hearts and purpose with His thoughts and ways (Isa. 55:8). 3). We can also provoke the acts of God, when we know His ways (Ps. 103:7) because God rewards those who diligently seek to know Him (Heb. 11:6).
Obedience to the word of God (1 Sam. 15:22) is key to operating the covenant relationship, through which we are able to fulfill the purpose of God in our life. Obedience elicits the supernatural release of God’s power.
If you are not willing to obey the voice of the Lord has commanded (Deut 28:1), then you have no business seeking the blessings which God has as promised (Deut. 28:3-13).
