WE ARE BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED

blessed-and-highly-favored

 

Every child of God can experience the favor of God upon their life. Favor (Grace/Blessing) is ours by virtue of our spiritual position in Christ (Ephesians 1:3). In Christ Jesus we are already recipients of God’s manifested kindness and have been endued with special honor. Spiritually we are already on the right side of God but we have to stay positioned for favor in our everyday walk to experience it. Stay positioned for favor by:

 

  1. KEEP (OBEY) GOD’S COMMANDS AND DON’T FORSAKE MERCY AND TRUTH

Proverb 3:1-4 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: 2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart. 4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

 

  1. EXALT WISDOM (GOD’S WORD & DOING IT)

Proverb 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. 8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. 9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

 

  1. BE GOOD AND DILIGENTLY SEEK GOOD

Proverb 12:2 A good man obtaineth favour of the Lord: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.

Proverb 11:27 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.

 

  1. LIVE RIGHT AND DON’T MOCK SIN

Proverb 14:9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.

 

  1. KEEP GROWING AND INCREASING IN WISDOM

Luke 2:40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

 

  1. LIVE AND WALK BY FAITH

Psalm 5:12 For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.

Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
