Walking in Favour
If God’s favor is manifested in your life, it is the blessing of God. I’ve been in the Christian walk for a long time, and over the years I have grown to be more dedicated than ever before. Through this I’ve learned a valuable truth about God’s favor: However much you give of yourself to God, that’s how much favor you’ll receive in return.
When you do what God says, favor is the result. When you do what He says, things work together for your good. The Scripture says for those who love God, all things work together for their good (Romans 8:28). Well, who loves God? Jesus Himself taught that those who love God keep His Word and obey it (John 14:23).
The Scripture teaches us to give God glory in our body and spirit. Our actions are to glorify God. Whatever we do, we’re to do it to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).
Well, you’re not going to be sinning to the glory of God. You’re going to be walking in love to the glory of God. You’re going to be giving to the glory of God. You’re going to be kind and good to the glory of God. You’re going to be ministering to others to the glory of God. Whatever you do, do it to the glory of God.
God is to be worshiped. He’s God! He is to be served. He is to be obeyed. When we treat Him as God and obey Him and serve Him and do whatever He tells us, favor comes to us. Supernatural favor and blessings can’t help but come to us.
So honor Him. Obey Him. Walk with Him. Expect favor from God and man, and you’ll be walking in favor everywhere you go.
Speak the Word
I am received of the Lord. He shows me kindness and treats me with favor. (2 Corinthians 6:17, amp)
