And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: Deuteronomy 28:13.
The covenant ensures that you are not shortchanged in life. God is not the robber, hè opens unto you good treasures. Unlimited opportunities open when the covenant connection is established. You are not in lack because you are black, lack is not synonymous with being black. Lack is synonymous with lack of the convenant connection. Obedience to the covenant word makes a trailblazers and a pacesetters. The covenant makes you first among the best by obedience. Hundredfold returns and covenant reward is it.
“Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him. And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants:and the Philistines envied him.” Genesis 26:12-14.
Being the head is not a product of chance, being above only is not by mistake. Success has never been the product of chance, it is by choice. Every successful person understands and knows the way to success. What challenged and discouraged others was their breakthrough. Isaac sowed, invested and cultivated in the land of discouragement in obedience to God’s word. Every covenant word produces exceptional returns and rewards. The returns and rewards of the covenant turns you to a trailblazer and a pacesetter. First is the covenant result, above only is the covenant prescribed position. The covenant is key to being first among the best and above only. Only first is good enough.
“He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:”Psalms 105:8-10.
