The blessings God conferred upon Abraham which are passed on to you as his spiritual seed, endow you with power for an abundant life. They assure power for success, prosperity, fruitfulness, healing, blessing, and long life. The blessings of Abraham were given from God through Christ to you:
The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say "and to seeds", meaning many people, but "and to your seed", meaning one person, who is Christ. (Galatians 3:16, NIV)
If you are a born-again believer, then these blessings are yours. This is what makes an understanding of this covenant so vital. Many believers are living far below their spiritual heritage because they do not understand that this covenant extends to them. They do not understand its provisions or how to receive the benefits. This lack of knowledge results in many living defeated and desperate lives. God’s Word declares, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...” (Hosea 4:6).
The provisions of this covenant are yours, passed on to you from God through Jesus Christ. The covenant is confirmed in your life the same way it was in the life of Abraham--by God alone. Jesus Christ walked alone to Calvary and, through His blood sacrifice, paid the price for your salvation and the spiritual benefits of this covenant:
Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
(2 Corinthians 1:21-22)
The fulfillment of this covenant is not dependent upon you. It is only dependent upon your obedience to accept and act upon the terms of the covenant. You must believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Savior in order to become the spiritual seed of Abraham:
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:8-10)
The promises of the Abrahamic covenant are attained by grace, through faith, just as your salvation is secured: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9).
PRAYER: My Father, my God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree that 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.
