“So you will find favor and good repute In the sight of God and man.” Proverbs 3:4
My mum always prays over us all as such “May you grow in wisdom , understand and find permanent favor with God and man”.
The favor with man and God always made me ponder, that is until I realised that when we have favor with God, He will cause people to be good to us, and gold things to happen for us.
The favor of God is when you get picked from a five thousand plus strong organisation, for the only ever approved double promotion; not because you are the most qualified or have the best experience, but simply because of God’s favour.
The favor of God is getting to the station on time to ride on the last train home, just before they suspend all services for hours on end, so you can get to your immovable appointment.
The favor of God is being able to purchase the last coat at 90% discount, when it is all you can afford and it is very cold!
The favor of God is that beautiful and enchanting smile from a total stranger, a smile that sets you up in a positive mood and empowers you to conquer all obstacles throughout your day.
The favor of God is active in all areas of our lives, we simply need to pay attention and look more closely.
I absolutely love and cherish the favor of God. It’s what I don’t deserve, but time and time again He sends plenty my way.
So, today Lord I say a big thank you for your unmerited favor towards me. I present this to you as an offering and pray my Gratitude is accepted in your presence in Jesus name.
