Ask For God’s Favour

 

(1 Samuel 16:21-23) “David went to Saul and began to serve him. Saul loved him very much, and he became his armor bearer. Saul sent a messenger to Jesse to tell him, ‘Allow David to serve me, because I’m pleased with him.’ Whenever an evil spirit from God came to Saul, David would take the lyre and play it. Relief would come to Saul and he would be better, because the evil spirit would leave him.”

(Esther 2:17) “The king loved Esther more than any of the other women, so he favored her and was kinder to her than he was to any of the other virgins. He put the royal crown on her head and made her queen in place of Vashti.”

 

God’s favor is something that when applied to our lives separates us from the rest. Where others have been rejected, we are accepted…. where they have been abused and condemned, we are praised and commended…. where they have failed, we succeed… and where they have merely been tolerated, we are celebrated. But in order for this to happen, we have to first be walking close to Christ, and second, we have to declare God’s favor over all that concerns us.

It gives us the award or public recognition even if we did not have the best performance. It opens doors that everyone told us were permanently shut. It multiplies our efforts and brings us profit beyond our expectations. It makes our business prosper while the competition closes down. God’s favor is what makes us get first in line even if we got there last, we get noticed by sports coaches even if we are not the best player on the field. It gives us the job or the promotion even if we don’t have the best qualifications.

When we have God’s favor, His strength works through us, His wisdom speaks through us, and His presence shines through us. God’s favor made Esther be noticed by the king because of her beauty allowing her to be chosen queen. God used this position to save the Hebrew nation from being totally wiped out. Joseph was favored by Pharaoh because of his excellent spirit and God used Joseph to save the Hebrew people from famine.

David was favored over his brothers to be chosen as the next king even though he was the smallest and youngest of them all. King Saul favored David and this gave David the chance to learn how to be the next king of Israel.

God has put you in the position you now enjoy in order to use you for His people and His purpose. The moment you forget to give Him the glory and stop using what you have for His kingdom and His people, you will find yourself once again at the end of the line.

 

 

Don’t ever forget that everything you have achieved in life is because God has favored you.
