RHAPSODY OF REALITIES

WE’RE THE FAVOURED ONES
Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come (Psalm 102:13).
The Christian is one who’s specially favoured of the Lord. In Psalm 102:13 above, David spoke prophetically about the new creation: “This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord” (Psalm 102:18).
“The generation to come,” and “the people which shall be created” refer to the new creation. The promise of God to favour and have mercy upon Zion has been fulfilled in your life. Favour means friendly regard shown towards another, especially by a superior; a special privilege or right granted you. It means a special advantage bestowed on you to your benefit. It also means gracious kindness, a deep expression of love.
God loves you so much. The Bible says He’s “…able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient…” (2 Corinthians 9:8 AMP). You’re called to walk in God’s manifold blessings in every area of your life. The Spirit of God has opened doors of blessings and opportunities for you that can’t be humanly explained. He has qualified you to experience the great and glorious benefits of the Kingdom: “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light…” (Colossians 1:12).
Psalm 5:12 says, “For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.” This has already happened; the righteous is already blessed and decorated with divine favour. That means there’s no disadvantage for you. Wherever you go in this world, you’ll be accepted, celebrated, and appreciated. Even those who don’t like you will secretly admire you, because you’re the favoured one. Hallelujah!
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the great love with which you’ve loved me. I’m the object of your supernatural grace and unfailing love, and therefore experience and walk in the full manifestation of your unprecedented favour, and manifold blessings in my family, health, job, ministry, and finances today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.
Proverbs 14:9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous [there is] favour.
