COVENANT DEMANDS FOR DURABLE BLESSINGS
We started the month with anointing for durable blessings. We said further that whenever we want this anointing to function, we need to love one another and be in unity Psalm 133:1-3. Love and unity sustain blessings.
We also talked about covenant practices for durable blessings, what you need to do in order to enjoy durable blessings from God. Last week, we looked at covenant of God’s protection, the part you need to play before you can enjoy God’s protection in life.
There are covenant demands for durable blessings. I like to emphasize on the fact that we are covenant people with God, we are walking in covenant with God and there are covenant demands that guaranteed durable blessings. If you are in covenant with God, you have a part to play and God also has His own part to play. Let us establish the fact that we are to walk in covenant with God. Gen esis17:1 -2 “When Abram was ninety-nine years old the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless, that I may make my covenant between me and you, and may multiply you greatly.”
We are in covenant with God and the covenant was sealed with the blood of Jesus. When you give your life to Jesus, you are into covenant relationship with Him. One of such covenant demands for durable blessings is to honour God. When you honour Him, He will bless you in return. Honour means respect God; fear Him; reference Him; obey His commandments. Any times you disrespect Him, blessings depart from you. You should respect God and all what God created.
One of the ways to honour God is with your substances. Proverbs 3:9-10 “Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the first-fruits of all your produce. Then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.” One of the ways to honour God is giving. Anytime you want a blessing, give to God and to the mankind. Malachi 3:10 “Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.” Tithing is the basic of giving; it is the least portion of giving. If you can tithe, then you can be a proper giver to God and mankind. Giving to God is not limited to 10 percent of your increase, but just a starting point. You can only fulfil the covenant demand of durable blessings by constantly giving to God, your parent, needy, charity etc.
- Oh Lord, bless me because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to the world in the name of Jesus.
- Oh Lord, help to satisfy the covenant demands of durable blessings in the name of Jesus.
- Oh Lord, help me to honour You all the days of my life. Where I have dishonoured you, I receive mercy today; forgive me in the name of Jesus.
