Favor


Blessings courtesy photobucket

 Proverbs 8:35  For those who find me find life and receive favor from the LORD.

To receive favor is a wonderful blessing.  When favor comes from God it is more than simply approval and opens us up to preferentiality treatment

I have a relative who wants to always be the favorite so she buys presents and spends money to purchase love and acceptance. 

How about God?  Are we his favorite?  Even though God has MANY children, does it seem possible that you can be His favorite and His special child?

Do we measure favor by the good things he does for us, or does favor go deeper than our health, possessions and status.

Beloved there is MORE – God desires to flood you with His favor!

How to receive His Favor;  The simple bottom line is this:
Love God and Love people as you love yourself.

John Eckhardt (quote) - -  Favor is goodwill. This is God’s kindness and benevolence given to those who love Him. Favor will release great blessings, including prosperity, health, opportunity and advancement. The Bible records numerous examples of God’s favor upon His people causing them to experience many breakthroughs. Favor is God’s loving kindness.
 
God says: “You don’t need money. You need My favor.” You need His shalom—the full measure of peace—to operate in your life. This is your gift from Him if you are His child, if you are in covenant with Him.


Ephesians 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus -

  1. Amen! Grace can't be overstated! To imagine how fall short we fall and yet our Father still pours out his unmerited favor... Mind boggling! Thanks for the wonderful reminder!
