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.
Migration is a major decision in life and human existence. When the idea of places are contemplated, particular cities come to mind. Lagos, Abuja, Joburg, Cape town, London, New York, and the like. Some call them great cities and associate greatness with its inhabitants. This is not always the case, the covenant is the sure path to greatness.
Prosperity and greatness are not in short supply with God. The location of your blessing is also known but shown by the covenant. The covenant locates, names and blesses the willing and obediënt. Many great men are self-made, some are great by chance, but the covenant makes great in every generation. Relative prosperity is limited to living in particular cities. Covenant prosperity is unlimited to particular places, nations & generations. The covenant ensures that you prosper anywhere and everywhere, The city of your prosperity is called the covenant city.
“And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;”Genesis 26:2-3.
The covenant city is not always a journey away, its a covenant away. God’s covenant is the sure path to Greatness; he makes great nation. Those that locate their covenant city enter their covenant portion. Just like God, the covenant cannot fail; it is sure. Don’t go down to Egypt, don’t go back to slavery. Lack, deprivation, and poverty continue without covenant moves. Your covenant city is not abroad, it is discovered from God’s word. The covenant city determines your great portion in life. The covenant is your locator and dislocator. Receive direction, obtain instruction, its the highway to the covenant city. Trade with covenant direction, deliver your generation from confusion. You will no longer go from place to place, the covenant gives you rest.
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand, there are pleasures for evermore.”Psalms 16:11.
