God's Divine Favor

     I want to talk to you about God's divine favor working in your life.  Psalms 5:12, the word says, "For you, O Lord will bless the righteous, with "favor".  You will surround him as with a "shield".  If you are a born again child of God, this scripture is for you.  In 2 Corinthians 2:21 the words says that Jesus made us righteousness of God in HIm.  Through the blood of Jesus we have been made right with God - the barrier and separation that once existed because of sin have done away with and we have obtained right standing with a heavenly Father.

     So when the Bible declares that the Lord will bless the righteous with favor, it means you and me.  This releases God's super natural influence in your life.  Favor means, "You're treated with privilege and favor!"  When you are one of God's kids you are "special privileged" kids.

     You see, God wants to give you special privileges.  This will all be done by faith (Hebrews 11:6).  The favor of God will cause people to go out of their way to bless you without them even knowing they are doing it.  The more you are blessed, the more you can be a blessing.  The apostle Peter said we were called to be a blessing to others (1 Peter 3:9).

     God's supernatural favor flowing in your life is based on the Word of God and believing what it says about you.  I love to say, "I know I am what the Bible says I am, I can do what the Bible says I can do , and I can have what the Bible says I can have."

     You see, favor can break through any barrier set before  you, and it is available to every Child of God who will access it by faith.  Remember the old saying, "It's not what you know, but who you know that will get you to the top."  That's a fact when you know my Father, He can open supernatural doors for you.  My Father can give  you the doors of favor to open for you when you walk in obedience to the Lord.

     When you "obey" the Word, God will give you supernatural favor and this will supersede natural circumstances.  A good example is the story of Daniel the Prophet.  Due to Daniel's faithfulness and obedience to God, he found favor with the leaders of Babylon (Daniel 1:9).  Daniel rose to the top in that land.

     When you study God's Word and spend time learning about Daniel you will find it was his obedience and dedication to God that brought this favor into his life.  I believe we can follow his example and be "highly favored" of God.  (Daniel 10:11 V19).  "You can believe God for the impossible."  Only believe and tap into His power by faith. 

     Supernatural "favor" will work for you.  One way to reap a harvest of favor in your life is to sow favor (Luke 6:38).  Make sure that you are helping someone else and showing favor to them.  "What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you."  Sow favor and reap a harvest of favor in your life.

     Let's take the limits off of God through our negative thinking and watch His favor work in every area of our lives (Psalms 78:41-42).  So today you are challenged to start thinking and seeing yourself the way God sees you.  He sees you as "righteous" and the righteous have the Divine Favor of God.  Everyday see how God favors you and be so quick to thank Him for His supernatural blessing.  

     I highly reccomend Jerry Savelle's book on "God's Divine Favor".  

Amen!
