Word for the day: “The Favor of God”

Genesis 6:8 (NIV) But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.

Today it is in my heart to say to all those I have the privilege to share with daily, that the Favor of God is in my life. How about you? Do you know if the Favor of God is in your life? That’s not fair!” shouted a small child at his upset mother trying to correct him about not following the rules established in the house. The mother in return gave her son what I call, “the look” and quickly replied, “Baby, sometimes life just isn’t fair.”  And although this statement can be true, I began thinking about the fact that God’s favor also isn’t fair and how this is good news for you and me!

In the world, people receive undeserved favor because of who they know or what family they come from.  And if you know the right people, or have the right family name, it doesn’t take near as much effort to become a success in life.  But it occurred to me that we are connected to the King of Kings and (we) you come from a Royal kingdom line?  When you made Jesus the Lord of your life, you entered into His unmerited favor.  And it is because you are a child of God that I can say with confidence, God will do for you exceedingly, abundantly, above all you could ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).  It is my personal prayer that you will leave this post knowing who you are and to whom you belong.

Sisters and brothers no matter how things may appear in the natural, I want to encourage you today that you have the supernatural favor of God in your life.  The world may tell you that you won’t amount to much, but God says that He has plans to prosper you!  It doesn’t matter who you are or whom you are connected to on earth, you have the favor of God on your side and in your life; so remember all things are possible with Him! God’s favor is unfair, undeserved and unmerited and when our lives line up with Biblical principles the world will see us lifted up and it will declare, “that’s not fair!”  To which we will respond, “You’re right, it’s not fair, it’s the favor of God!” May you live in the Favor of God this weekend!

Prayer: Divine Father, when I submitted my life to you, I stepped into your supernatural favor.  Thank you for loving me and covering my life with the unmerited, undeserved favor of God. No longer will I seek or strive for the approval of man. It is my declaration that your favor is enough! May my life bring Glory to your name, as I live you in your favor.  Amen!
