“God’s favor is a big deal—it’s right up there with faith, grace, and the mercy of God.” Steven Furtick
Psalm 30:5 NKJV
“For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.”
A few days ago, I began to research scripture about “God’s favor”. I found over 70 places in scripture where God’s favor is mentioned. This is what I am reminded of:
• God’s favor is priceless.
• God’s favor is immeasurable.
• God’s favor gives us security.
• God’s favor is for every season of our life.
• God’s favor is found among the righteous.
Bible characters, like Noah, David, Mary, and Paul all experienced God’s favor. These, among others, experienced God’s favor in unique ways.
I too desire to experience God’s favor. Some of the ways to experience God’s favor are to love God, love people, hate sin, live a holy life, and be faithful to God.
I have heard several prophecies at the beginning of 2019, that this is a year of harvest. I say yes and amen! I’m praying for you to experience God’s favor, and see His harvest. “May God be merciful and bless us. May his face smile with favor on us.” (Psalm 67:1 NLT)
As Jesus reminded us in Luke 4:19 (NLT) “…the time of the Lord’s favor has come”. May you be empowered with the Holy Spirit to influence the lives of others, heal the brokenhearted, to see the sick healed, and see those that are in bondage, set free. When you experience God’s favor, you will be empowered to influence!
This is your season!
