The secret of success is “favor”. Favor means to be acceptable, delightful, pleasurable, self-will.
What would it look like if you had favor with your boss, your clients, your neighbors, total strangers? What if everywhere you journeyed, people were attracted to you?
The children of Israel had favor with the Egyptians, so that as they left Egypt, the Egyptians willing gave them silver, gold, and clothing.
Joseph had favor with Potiphar, the prison warden and ultimately Pharaoh and prospered.
Ruth found favor with Boaz.
Esther had favor with the King and prevented genocide.
This same favor these men and women possessed belongs to us as children of the Most High. We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and the Bible promises:
“For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.” Psalms 5:12 NKJV
God’s favor surrounds us as a protective shield. People are drawn to the Jesus in us. Declare this with me this morning:
God’s favor surrounds me like a shield. Everywhere I go, people are drawn to the Jesus in me! Doors are open for me. Unexpected blessings are coming my way. I have success at work. I have favor with God and He gives me greater revelation in His Word. I have favor with Pre-Christians and cause them to hunger for God. I have favor as I preach God’s Word and people fall more in love with Jesus as I speak. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and I am surrounded in God’s favor. Amen.
