HOW DO I RECEIVE GOD'S FAVOR AND BLESSINGS UPON LIFE?
HOW DO I RECEIVE GOD'S FAVOR AND BLESSINGS UPON MY LIFE? I have had this question ask by a number of people. What is God's favor and how can I be sure that I have it? Favor Is: Gaining approval, acceptance, or special benefits or blessings. There is also a close association among favor, grace, and mercy, which are sometimes used to translate the same Hebrew and Greek words. The favor that human beings receive from God depends on their good pleasure and is often extended in response to prayer or righteous living. Those whose walk is blameless before God, notice I didn't say perfect or without error, but blameless. " Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands." Psalm 90:17. NASB It is the will of God to give His favor, and as you continue your walk of righteousness before Him many door will continue to open for you. God will pour out His blessings upon you, His goodness and mercy shall follow you all of the days of your life. You will have good health and live a long life, you will continue to prosper in all that you set your hands to do. Proverbs 3:1-4, ESV "My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man." When God's favor is upon you, your enemies will become your foot stool, working for your good benefit and blessing, that all in the plan of God for you because the glory of God's power and His favor rest upon your life. “And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.” May this be our portion, May we continually increase in wisdom and in spiritual stature, pleasing God in all we do, and finding favor with both God and man. Luke 2:52 ESV This is the way to the favor and continued God's blessing to fill your life. May God bless and give you his favor today, is my prayer for you. Amen
