Imparting life to the nations, one person at a time

May 19: Favored by default

“For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.”   Psalms 5:12 (NIV)

Read: Proverbs 16:15; Proverbs 19:12, Luke 2:52

Everyone speaks about favor but few people know how to incur it. The greatest tragedy however, is the Christian, who is unaware of how to incur and walk in the favor of God. Child of God you are favored by default. You cannot earn it. It is the gift of God. Since righteousness is a gift (II Corinthians 5:21) favor also is a gift. Every child of God, whose name is in the Lamb’s book of life, has become “God’s righteousness in Christ.” Righteousness is the only prerequisite for the clothing of favor.

To be in the league of the favored, you must be born again. Not just be ‘good,’ ‘kind’ or a ‘church-goer.’ Born again! So, if you are not yet born again, you need to commit your heart and life to Jesus right now. However, if you are, congratulations! You are a member of the league of the favored. Henceforth, expect favor from both God and Man
