Covenant refers to as a binding to an agreement or a promise between two parties or people.Benefits of covenant with God require one to have a serious agreement with God and also demand you to obey and walk with God.

You have to break ties with old groups and live to take a walk with God. In covenant walk, the goal is to seek divine guidance in the daily life's journey. God’s commandments or demands are not grievous (I John 5:3)and anyone who obeys the demands or terms of the covenant automatically becomes a beneficiary of God’s covenant blessings.
