We have been on a powerful spiritual journey this month. We have been building a spiritual foundation for the pilgrimage to our divine destiny for 2023 – The Year of the Release of the blessing - Makarios.
We have learned how God made an eternal, unchanging covenant with Abraham which extends down through the centuries to us today. We can see these blessings outlined in Deuteronomy 28:1-14. In these devotionals, we are going to continue to explore many covenant blessings and learn how we can fully access them and make them ours.
Last Sunday’s message was about the covenant of Salt. A Salt covenant God made with David. You can watch the full message titled “Salt Covenant” coming to you from Revival City on WordnSpirit TV at www.wordnspirit.tv
One question remains: Why did God give us these tremendous blessings? One reason, of course, is that God gave these promises because of His love for us, just as any good earthly father who passes on an inheritance to his sons and daughters.
Jesus declared, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Jesus wants you to have an abundant life. He came to this earth to impart new life, a spiritual life filled with blessings and privileges--including eternal life. All that is good in your life comes from Him:
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17).
But there is a purpose much larger than simply enjoying these blessings. The divine purpose is clear: God blessed Abraham so that through him, the nations of the world would be blessed.
God extended the provisions of this powerful covenant down through the centuries to you so that you would be empowered to bless the world by fulfilling the great commission:
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:19-20)
Why--through these promises--does God pledge supernatural success? Why does He promise good things to you? Why does He declare He will be your shield and place provisions into your hands? Why does God want to bless you so much? The reason is that, like Abraham and his descendants, you have a divine destiny. You are blessed in order to be a blessing to the world. That is your covenant purpose.
My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR,HONOR AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus
