Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime Psalm 30:4-5, NIV.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Let this truth sink down into your spirit today: Gods favor is not for a season; its for a lifetime. How do we obtain Gods favor? Proverbs three tells us that when we honor His Word, when we obey His commands and walk in mercy and truth, thats how we find favor in Gods sight. When we do our part, God will do His part.
Today, if you are believing God for something, maybe a turnaround in a relationship, career or your health, stand firm that Gods Word is true. When you put Him first place in your life, when you follow His commands, He promises to pour out His favor on you. When those thoughts try to tell you, Its not going to happen. Its too good to be true. Turn it around and say, Father, I want to thank You for Your favor on my life, on my children, on my career, on my future. I am Your child, and I know its not temporary. Its not seasonal. It doesnt come and go. Thank you, God, for a lifetime of favor!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I choose to honor You in all I do. I choose to acknowledge Your ways. Thank You for pouring at Your favor and blessing on me as I boldly follow Your commands in Jesus name. Amen.
Jesus has already done that for me. All I have to do is receive Him.
Once I receive Jesus by grace through faith, I have God's favor (GRACE) forever. God loves me and favors me not because of anything that I do, but becasue of what Jesus has already DONE. Because of HIS obedience, I am the righteousness of God. (Rom 5:19; 2 Cor 5:21).
