When God decides to bless you, He will cause situations to come together in your favorÖno matter what others try to do. Ė Christie Joyner
Have you ever experienced Godís favor in your life? If you have not, just keep living and believing in God, continue reading Godís Word, and stay forever prayerful. God will give you strength for every battle, wisdom for every decision, peace that surpasses understanding. Do you believe this on today? I donít know about you, but I find joy in every day, not because life is always good, but because God is, and Godís favor blesses His children every day.
Have you ever felt that you were on the right path that God set you out to be on, but you found nothing but pain and heartache? Sometimes hardship comes into our lives because God is trying to get our attention. Donít give up. Donít give in. Keep your thoughts on Godís Word and His promises. Despite what you think or how you feel, God is fighting your battles, arranging things in your favor, and making a way even when you donít see a way.
Here are some examples of Godís favor shown in the Bible:
ē Ruth asked for and found favor with Boaz (Ruth 2 Ė 4)
ē David found favor with Saul (I Samuel 16:22) and with God (Psalm 30:7)
ē Esther found so much favor (Esther 5:2 that the King offered her up to half his kingdom
ē Mary found favor with God (Luke 1:30) and became the mother of Jesus
ē Jesus disciples had favor with both God and men (Acts 2:47)
Always remember God will never take anything away from you without the intention of replacing it with something much better. If you keep putting God first, His blessings will chase you down. His favor will come looking for you. Sometimes the best thing you can do as believers is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best. Itís not luck, but itís God favor over your life.
