TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Dare to rest all upon Me. Surrender all cares big or small at My feet and trust Me. For in a moment, through the name of Jesus, a new order of things can be brought in.
GROWING IN FAVOR?
If you’re looking for God – if you’re seeking Him – you will not only find Him as He promises, you will find the added bonus of favor as well.
“For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD.” – Proverbs 8:35
Favor is when God causes things to line up for you. You aren’t just born with favor. I looked up the definition of obtain and it means “to come into possession of or to get, to acquire by effort or by request.’ It means that you grab it; You earn it.
Favor is something you must increase in throughout your life. It is something you must grow in. Even Jesus had to grow in favor with the Lord. The Good Book says so.
“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” – Luke 2:52
He grew in favor. Favor is not an issue of God loving you. God loving you and God favoring you are two entirely different issues. There is no way God can love you any more than He already loves you. However, He can favor you a whole lot more than He favors you right now. That’s on us, not Him.
How do we earn His favor? We have to walk in the things He loves and stay away from the things He hates. Amen. We have to be all about molding our heart to His heart.
Remember, favor is not the love of God. Favor is a supernatural blessing or advantage. If you’re going to walk in His favor, you’re going to have to walk with Him.
“For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield.” – Psalms 5:12
We all need a shield around us, right? That shield is favor. Favor is how the Lord defends us. It is a shield of supernatural advantage. Are you dodging fiery darts from the enemy? Or falling into a trap laid by the in-a-me? You need the shield of favor. Go. Obtain it!
