And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac:the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 28:13-14.

God introduces himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It’s bothersome & repetitive but conveys his most favourite partners. God is proud of these three as an example of the covenant at work. Many of us have become used to that expression, not many understand the implication; the difference between blessing and riches or wealth. For three generations God was working through the covenant. These men walked with God and had so much to show & for our learning. Wealth and riches are not transferable, blessings are generational. The wealthy are not always blessed but the blessed are always wealthy. Blessing is the emblem of the covenant, wealth and riches are the byproducts. They are not blessed alone, their children and Family with them. Watch out for generational, family and lineage blessing; it’s the covenant at work.

“His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.” Psalms 112:2-3.

The covenant is not key to national wealth but to generational blessing after the order of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. There is à covenant location for your green pastures and it is not synonymous with nationality. Blessing abounds irrespective of national prosperity or austerity. Your covenant land is always green notwithstanding the season of the year. What God did in Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, hè is reenacting today. The covenant is not obsolete, it is the same today; same God, same covenant & same effect. The covenant grants generational blessing irrespective of nationality.

“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.
