Redemption is man’s escape from the life of woes, toiling and hardship into the life of abundance Jn. 10:10. What makes the abundance to become a reality is word encounter and practice Jos. 1:8; Psa. 1:2-3. Every time we put God’s word to practise, we have stepped into a covenant with God, and we are guaranteed the delivery of the promise of God Deu. 28:1-2.

In essence, when a God’s covenant is activated by the believer, everything in life will begin to answer to him Psa. 74:20.

Terms of the Covenant of Financial Fortune.
Remember, every covenant has responsibility for the believer, which commits God to his prosperity when obeyed. The believer’s responsibility for the covenant of wealth is sowing of his seed, popularly referred to as giving Gen. 8:22; Lk. 6:38. This is what Job, the wealthiest man in his days referred to as ‘the law’ that must be received for one to prosper Job 22:21-25. These are conditions that make giving to produce abundance; they are the terms of the covenant of wealth.
It is only what e give willing that produces harvest and abundance 2Cor. 8:12; Exo. 35:4,16,22. Whatever is given under duress or coercion does not produce harvest, but a waste.

It is only seeds that fall on good ground that will produce harvest; those that fall on bad or wrong ground are lost forever Mat. 13:23. Sowing into good ground demands that we give according to the covenant channels and where the Spirit of God will instruct us at certain times Deu. 12:13-14.
Every seed that will produce harvest requires adequate water 1Cor. 3:6. Thanksgiving is the spiritual water for our seed, to make it deliver harvest abundance Pro. 12:14; Heb. 13:15.
Enemies of Financial Fortune.
These are the little foxes that won’t allow our seed to develop and deliver harvest. We must avoid and get rid of them.
Financial crookedness and unfaithfulness is a disqualifier from supernatural wealth Jer. 17:10-11; Lk. 16:11-12. For our giving to produce harvest, we must walk in financial integrity!
Another word for slothfulness is laziness, it makes victim to lack and become poor Pro. 20:4; 6:6-10. One vital demand for prosperity is hard work Psa. 1:3.
The attitude of waste disconnect from God’s blessing, thereby making a waster to suffer lack and poverty Lk. 15:13-15. Waste can manifest in diverse ways, some of which are; spending it all attitude Lk. 15:14; impulsive spending, buying on credit and debt, not operating financial plan or budget, never having enough.
It is strong wish to have something, especially something that belongs to someone else. Another word for it is greed. Covetousness sets the victim for a fall and destruction 1Tim. 6:6-9; Jos. 7:19-26. The solution is contentment, which is a product of the understanding that one’s life is not determined by the substance one has Lk. 12:15.
Remember, the primary reason for God blessing the believer is to build His kingdom Zch. 1:17-20. In essence, the more we commit to promoting God’s kingdom with our resources, the more we move God to bless us Hag. 1:5-14.

Our seed is a ransom; it has the power to ransom our soul from death Job 33:24. The believer who walk in the covenant is not permitted to die premature Gen. 25:8; Gal. 3:13-14,29.
Covenant practice imparts with glorious hope, which results into inexplicable joy in the believer 2Cor. 8:1-2; 2Chr. 15:12-15. Remember, joy is the fertilizer for a great destiny Hab. 3:17-19.
