Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: Genesis 12:1-2.
There is a land for you, it is the good land. Nationality may limit prosperity, the covenant is key to unlimited prosperity. When it is from above, an international appeal is inevitable. There are men like nations and nations like men. Nations arise from men other men arise from nations. God makes a nation from men, you are that man to be turned into à nation. You don’t have to envy a nation, become that nation of envy. Nations rise and fall, bigger nations are fragmented as their founding idea fail. Those that serve God are turned into nations for generations.
The covenant creates men with national and generational impact. That is the story of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, your covenant fathers. They were individuals that were turned to great nations and a great name. This is the work of the covenant.
“And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel:for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.”Genesis 32:27-28.
The covenant changes location, nature & identity of men. Those that live like others in their country end up as countrymen. Jacob was dislocated, named and Blessed. The covenant gives the power to Prosper and prevails with God and men. By the same covenant be located, named and Blessed. The covenant chooses men for blessing and greatness. From a man to à nation, à great name & blessing; the power to Prosper today.
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God:for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”Deuteronomy 8:18.
