Bible Passage: Genesis 18:3-24
Divine favour is being singled out by God for special treatment. It is at His exclusive and unquestionable bidding and pleasure. It means you have somehow found favour with Him against all odds. The natural laws and normal course of events are altered, cancelled or suspended just for you. You will either be pulled out of the line or your line will become unique and different from others. You will either standout or be outstanding.
Divine favour is beholding the good side of God’s face and joy – Num.6:25-26. The Lord will make His face glow towards you and His countenance will be favourable towards your cause – Pro.16:15. It will dispel darkness and gloom and give you light, life and joy wrapped up in peace – Ps.30:5. He will affectionately wipe away your tears and give you fresh early morning Dew of Hermon. You will be preferred. It will pour out abundant mercy where required – Ps. 44:3. His unending grace will grant you all round victory – Songs 8:10. Divine Favour changes everything for good and is a great game changer. The rules of the game will be rewritten in your favour.
Divine favour is never random. Always intentional. It is prayed in – Gen. 43:29; Num. 6:24-26; Ps. 31:16; Ps.67:1; Dan.9:17. Disobedience is always a great obstacle. – Ex.19:15; 1Jn. 3:22. We must be observant and discerning. Spiritually sensitive. Moses was called from the burning bush. He stopped. He observed. He listened with rapt attention. The Lord began to speak to him – Ex.3:3-4. Sometimes it is a covenant between the recipient’s forefathers and God – 2 Kings.13:23. Praises can instigate divine favour – Isa. 33:2. God’s presence always accompanies His favour – Jn.12:32; Ps.22:3; Jn.8:29; Acts 2:47.
Your age long foes and adversaries will clamour to sign a peace treaty with you and consummate a covenant of peace. Pro.16:7. Another result of divine favour is mercy. When God favours you, your impudence will be over looked – Gen.18:12-13. The same happened to David – 2 Sam.12:13. Divine favour restores lost grounds and restores lost hope – Jer.32:41-42. Above all, divine favour exalts the saints – Ps.89:17.
Ask for divine favour now. Pray that the Merciful One will not mark your iniquity. The blood of the Lamb will speak for you today and we will all be beneficiaries of divine favour in the mighty name of Jesus.
