ENJOY GOD’S GRACIOUSNESS
(We’re God’s Favoured Ones)
TO THE BIBLE – Psalm 102:13 NASB
“You will arise and have compassion on Zion; for it is time to be gracious to her, for the appointed time has come.”
The Christian is one who’s specially favoured of the Lord. In Psalm 102:13 above, David spoke prophetically about the new creation: “This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord” (Psalm 102:18).
“The generation to come,” and “a people yet to 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 AMPC). 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 to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light” (Colossians 1:12).
Psalm 5:12 says, “For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround 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!
Luke 2:52; Romans 8:28; Proverbs 14:9
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 at home, and in my family, health, school today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
