I have come so you can have a great, abundandant,
happy, fulfilled, exciting life.
-Jesus (Author paraphrased)
You have to know covenant. What can
you have? What can you expect out of life? Most
Christians don’t know what is their right.
There is a story of a young man who ran away at
age sixteen. At age 30, a lawyer found him living on the
street, homeless and broke. The lawyer said “Your parents
passed away ten years ago, leaving you millions of
dollars.” Understand this: That man was a millionaire
by all defi nitions for over ten years, yet never enjoyed his
wealth. Why? Because he did not know what was rightfully
his. As Christians, we have great wealth ready for
us. But if we don’t know what is rightfully ours, we will
go a lifetime not enjoying it.
Let me give you a few scriptures concerning what
God wants you to have. The Bible has a lot more scriptures
on God’s blessings. I encourage you to search them
out. Learn them, know them, meditate on them. Faith
(what you believe) comes through hearing. Until you truly
believe that God wants you blessed, you will subconsciously
fi ght the blessings. Genesis 12:2 showed you that
we have the same favor as Abraham. Genesis 24:1 tells
us God blessed Abraham in all things (same covenant we
have). Romans 8:31 says if God is for me (his favor is on
me), who can be against me. Verse 32 continues, He shall
freely give us all things (in other words, blessings come to
me). First Corinthians 3:21 says all things are ours. First
Timothy 6:17 says God gives us richly all things to enjoy.
Hebrews 6:13 says after Abraham waited patiently, he
received the promise (the same promise we are afforded).
Third John 1:2 says God will make you prosper in all
things, even in health as your thinking prospers.
That is exciting that all that Abraham had, I can
have. You look at Abraham’s life and the favor of God
was on him. Money seemed to chase him. It didn’t matter
that his nephew Lot took the best land, the best opportunity,
God’s favor brought blessings to Abraham, not to
Lot. Favor is more powerful than even opportunity, more
powerful than what our eye can see. So what if someone
else took something that was yours? Favor will bring
back a seven times return. So what if your business looks
bleak? With favor, even bleak becomes abundant. Whatever
Abraham touched seemed to prosper. At the end of
his life, he had received all the promises. Isn’t that what
There are things we have to do to get our
money—knowing we have it available isn’t enough. Faith
without works is dead. We can’t be just hearers of the
Word, we have to be doers.
1. Research blessings scriptures, prosperity
scriptures, God’s goodness scriptures and write
2. Every morning, read them when you get up.
