Believers are called the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21) and as the righteous we are blessed with God’s favor (Psalm 5:12). To be favored means to be the object of kind regard, good will, or the recipient of benevolent acts of kindness.
Favor from God is always given in the pursuit of His purpose for our lives. Noah (Genesis 6:8), Joseph (Genesis 39:4, 21), and the children of Israel (Exodus 12:35, 36) were given favor to advance the purpose of God in the Earth. The path of purpose (to our promised land of destiny) is the path to finding God’s favor in manifestation in our lives. God prepares each of us for His purpose (Ephesians 2:10) and designs or puts into us the necessary equipment to fulfill it. Here are some clues to His destiny designed into you:
DESIRE – Psalm 37:4; Philippians 2:13; Hebrews 13:20,21 ((Desire can reveal God’s design and something He is working in you).
PASSION – John 2:17 interest, intensity, motivation; (Passion is a sign God’s placed something in your heart He cares about).
GIFTING – Romans 12:6-8 (Gifting indicates grace bestowed that motivates us and makes us notice needs others do not see).
PEACE – Colossians 3:15 (Peace aligns you with His leading, timing and opportunity).
FRUIT – John 15:16; Matthew 12:33 (Fruit manifests what’s inside).
AFFIRMATION – 1 Peter 4:10 (Mature leaders/believers should also see it if you’ve been a faithful steward of it).
