Walking in the Favor of God
Favor is an act of kindness beyond what is due or usual.
What does it mean to walk in the favor of God? I imagine we all have experienced favor one way or another in our life. The truth of the matter is, we all walk in the favor of God whether we are saved or not. Because when Jesus died on the cross and rose on the third day, it was for all of humanity. His sacrifice was an unusual act of kindness above and beyond what humanity was due.
Favor began when God laid out the plan for our life, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God has already released His favor in our life; He prepared the right people, the right environment, and the right opportunities. Through Jesus, our Father has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world.
The opportunities we need have already been prepared. We must have faith, go out each day and operate in integrity, then we will experience the blessings our Father has for us. He loves to shower favor on His children. When God gives favor; people favor us, many times for reasons they can’t explain.
Favor is a part of grace. Hence, the favor of God is the grace of God. His Love is doing something for us; we can never earn or deserve. Imagine that! God wants to give us special privileges. God’s supernatural favor flowing in our life is not based on what family we belong to, our past, our looks or personality. His favor is based on His word and believing what it says about us. Favor can overcome any obstacle before us, and it is offered to anyone that believes.
It’s simple to walk in favor, just trust Him!
