TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 102:13
“You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come.”
Favour means to show friendly regard toward another. It means gracious kindness; a special privilege or right granted you especially that which you didn’t deserve. It also means an advantage bestowed on you to your benefit. It’s similar to the word “mercy” as used in the beginning part of the opening scripture, which in the original Hebrew text refers to “a deep expression of love.”
I want you to know that God has chosen to show you a deep expression of love. He wants you to experience His extraordinary favour and manifold blessings in every area of your life. Doors and opportunities that can’t be humanly explained have been opened to you by the Spirit of God. People will regard, celebrate and help you because you’ve found favour with God, and in the sight of men. This was what Apostle Paul saw when he wrote in Colossians 1:12: “Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.”
The Bible says “For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield” (Psalm 5:12). That means you’re dressed with God’s favour everywhere you go. Come to terms with the fact that God has favoured you. You’ve been marvelously helped. You’re the favoured child of a loving God; therefore you cannot be disadvantaged.
Dear Father, thank you for your favour surrounds me as a shield. I’m grateful for the life of favour and abundant blessings with which I have been blessed. Thank you because things always turn out for my good. Doors of opportunities open to me, and people take it upon themselves to do me good, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
