Scriptures make it clear that favor is vital to experience fulfilment in life Psa. 30:5; Job 10:12. Even Jesus could not live without God’s favor at work in His life Lk. 2:52.
What is in Favor that makes it so Vital?
The Israelite had done everything to be free from Egypt but could not, but when God released His favor of them it was Pharaoh and Egypt that wanted them to leave.
The Israelite had been laboring with nothing to show, but favor released their wasted and lost efforts suddenly turning their labor into result.
Favor will make an individual to be singled out in a crowd, and turn the individual to a sought-after. In essence, God’s favor on a life forbids the person looking for things; rather things will be coming to the person.
Favor is a force of the spirit that forbids stagnation, it lifts men to heights beyond what effort or credential can ever do.
Favor attracts helps both divine and human, which is key to breaking forth fruits. In essence, with favor bareness of every kind is forbidden and unheard of.
Access to God’s Favor.
Giving one’s life to Christ brings a man into favor with God and man. The favor that comes on a life at salvation is the secret to all things becoming new in the life; hence when a man becomes born again everything becomes better with him in life.
Sin disconnects from God’s favor, it is the reason why the lifestyle of sin will make a man to be full of struggle. But righteousness brings into favor with God, and this makes things to work with less effort.
We don’t really pray to be favored; rather we serve our way into God’s favor. The decision to commit to serving God and advancing His kingdom is the switch that unlocks God’s favor on one’s life.
Giving is one sure way to secure favor on one’s life, but it must be one with a kingdom motive not selfish intention. We cannot buy God’s favor; when one gives with the intention of buy favor it procures a curse Acts 8:18-21.
In conclusion, in life you are either a man favored or one laboring, make your choice. The choice for favor is the cure to labor through life, but it is with a responsibility.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.”
