Dear Partners and Friends,

      
     One thing you will never find in the Bible is the story of a person who entered into a covenant with God and ended up in a worse condition. Everyone who got involved in God’s way of doing things has increased. It may have been step by step or day by day but they increased. It may have come in harvest by harvest but they received and continued to increase!

     This is God’s plan for you and me! The Lord will increase you more and more. (Psalm 115:14) He has provided His covenant for us to experience His blessing to the point that we become a blessing supply in the lives of other people. In order for the increase of God to operate and manifest in our lives, we must understand and utilize our covenant with Him.

     #1 Know that the covenant is ESTABLISHED. We are not attempting to make an agreement of provision or supply with the Lord. It is already established and through our relationship with Jesus Christ, we already have legal right to it! The word used for establish in the Word of God means “to make steadfast, firm, or stable; to settle on a firm or permanent basis, to set or fix unalterably.”

And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. Genesis 1:7

This is the covenant we are united with through our salvation in Christ Jesus. This agreement now belongs to us. We have inherited the covenant and every provisional promise it contains.

And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:29

Think about this. God is a covenant keeper. He has operated by using a covenant since the beginning. We might be more familiar with the word contract. A covenant is the strongest contract that can be established. The Lord God Almighty, Creator of the universe, has chosen to establish a legal, binding contract with you and me! It is valid. You can place a demand on the provisions stated therein and receive them. God is not going to break His contract!
My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Psalm 89:34

Our Heavenly Father was so serious about establishing this binding agreement with us that He not only made the promise but He swore to it with an oath! Can you picture this? Just like someone will stand in the courtroom with one hand on the Bible and another lifted to God and swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, God Himself stood and swore to bless us!
      
For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. Hebrews 6:13-14

He swore to bless us! He swore upon Himself. This swearing of an oath is meant to put an end to all question and settle any argument. God swore to settle it once and for all that His purpose for our lives is to progress, increase, prosper, and thrive!

When swearing an oath to confirm what they are saying, humans swear by someone greater than themselves and so bring their arguments to an end. In the same way, when God wanted to confirm His promise as true and unchangeable, He swore an oath to the heirs of that promise.
Hebrews 6: 16-17 The Voice

We access this covenant by believing in it and taking God at His Word. Position yourself in line with His increase and supply by putting the promise before your eyes, incline your ear to hear what He has said about blessing you, and let your heart fill up with confidence that “blessing, He will bless you and multiplying, He will multiply you!
