This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
A covenant is like a contract. It involves two or more people. Specifically, in this case, it’s you and God, with you being the one who mostly benefits from the deal. God is a covenant-keeping God (Psalm 89:34). When God rescued the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt, it says, “And I have remembered my covenant” (Exodus 6:5).
The economy of your city, what your occupation is, what your business is, or what you are selling is not what determines your prosperity. It is your understanding of your covenant with God and how to put it into operation to benefit you and others.
In the book of Joshua (see this week’s scripture), we have the biblical way to kingdom wealth. This scripture shows how God blesses His people. It is the gateway to our inheritance, to “Covenant Prosperity.” What this is saying is that it’s the Word that creates the wealth. Before there is money seed, there must be Word seed. The God-kind of wealth starts by planting the Word of God in our heart (spirit) to create the image of God’s abundance. And through faith (in the heart), this seed will grow bringing forth exactly what it says, independent of the circumstances or environment.
God’s desire is not for you and me to have “just enough,” but for us to have more than enough—too much, so that we can share generously with someone else without going broke ourselves. I want to decree over you now, “I decree wealth into your life from this day forward.”
I praise You, Father, for Your blessing in my life. I thank You that You provide not just enough to get by, but more than enough to meet my needs, so that I can sow into the Kingdom and help others, too. I receive Pastor Winston’s decree over my life from this day forward. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
