He answered, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" Luke 10:27

Favor

There’s a lot of people who believe in luck. When they are promoted to a better job when there are several people more suited for the position, they shout about how lucky they are or when their money is acting kind a funny and someone who they may not even know helps them with a few of their bills, they speak about luck was on there side. The truth of the matter is luck had nothing to do with either of these examples. The thing society labels as luck is the favor of God acting in our lives. According to the text read in learnthebible.org, “To favor means to give special regard to; to treat with goodwill; to show exceptional kindness to someone”, with that being said, favor from a biblical stand point is the supernatural goodwill given to us from God. There’s no need to carry around a four leaf clover to get this favor. God chooses who and He chooses when to use favor in our lives. People often think favor is just for the righteous and that’s not true. Granted He does bless those who are doing His will with favor but He also blesses those who are not doing His will. Why would He do this? Well in spite of what the world may think, He loves them just as much as He loves the folks who are doing His will. He just hates the sins that they commit and He will give favor to them so that they can come to see who He is. If He supernaturally comes in with favor to someone who is lost and helps them find a job you never know they may think hard about how was this possible with little education and no experience and sooner or later they will come to realize that there is no other explanation but the favor of God acting on their behalves. Today we need to stop looking for luck and start looking for God! He will make the humanly impossible possible when we but our faith in Him! Have a blessed day, stay encouraged and know that God loves YOU! ❀️
