Living in the Favour of God
The favour of God is a wonderful blessing for believers.
It belongs to & is bestowed upon believes through the Lord Jesus Christ.
‘In Christ’ it rests upon us & makes a way for us as we travel through this world.
It lasts a lifetime as its source is the love & grace of God. We will think more on that today.
For His anger is but for a moment, His favour is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5
God’s favour is life & it lasts for a lifetime. The Lord’s anger or wrath is momentary, but His favour endures forever.
That wrath was exhausted upon Calvary as the love of God was revealed through Christ the Saviour.
The favour of God not only lasts a lifetime (forever) but it is also a source of life, energy, joy & strength in itself.
Weeping may endure for a time – hard times & suffering will cross our path in this life.
However, joy (an ecstatic shout of praise) comes when we realise that the favour of God never left us. Hallelujah!!!
It remains with us & on us ‘In Christ’ whatever we are going through or experiencing. So, so good. SELAH
God’s favour is not just for a moment or even for an hour, day, week, year or decade/s. God’s favour is forever. SELAH
That means you will never run out of God’s favour. Every moment of every day of your life God’s favour is flowing to you & over you.
Certainly, there will be difficult times, but still God’s favour is there freely flowing to the believer in, & through, the Lord Jesus Christ.
None of us deserve that favour yet in Christ none of us can outlive it. Just amazing!!!
Bask in the favour of the Father’s love & grace that rests upon you. You are mightily blessed.
God initiates & imparts His favour through his great love & grace. It is not dependant on my part or merit.
It starts with God but settles on believers because of Christ. So good.
We can however increase its impact on our lives through walking in obedience (Luke 2:51-52).
Obedience is a catalyst that enables the favour of God to flow more freely to us & through us.
God’s favour is steadfast, sustained, shields & surrounds us & is strong, lasting a lifetime.
‘In Christ’ you are satiated & surrounded by the favour of God which settles on you for life.
It is a source of rich life & it lasts for a lifetime. Hallelujah!!!
God’s favour is flowing over you today. As His child, you will never outlive His grace and favour working in
Celebrate it & celebrate it well.
- How easy or difficult is it for me to fully accept God’s favour?
- In what ways do I celebrate the favour of God upon my life?
- Meditate upon the favour of God ‘In Christ’ which lasts a lifetime – forever.
A song related to this theme:
Thank you that Your favour is life & that it lasts forever,
That mercy & grace have triumphed over judgement in & through the cross.
Jesus thank you that You are the true source of my favour with God,
That Your grace & favour flows to me, & through me, ceaselessly.
Holy Spirit keep me appreciate of the Lord’s favour,
And rightly celebrating it.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
