FAVOR WITH GOD
I have heard many people say that favor with God is not fair. He chooses whom He gives favor to. I am not sure that I totally agree with all those words, but I do know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is favor with God. I have received that favor and I know I am not alone. I do not deserve that favor, but it is something that I cherish. Favor with God is something that we cannot achieve by ourselves. God grants it to us. I would go one-step further and say that God gives all His children favor. The question is whether we recognize it. His favor is expressed by His mercy. The scripture reference is in Exodus 33:13.
“If it is true that You look favorably on me, let me know Your ways so I may understand You more fully and continue to enjoy Your favor. And remember that this nation is Your very own people.”
Moses, the servant of the Lord speaks to God. The Lord has told him to take his people to the Promised Land. He has not told him who would go with him. The Lord has told Moses that He knows him by name, so he speaks to God and says, “If I have received your favor, then remember this nation is your very own people.” He wants to know God’s ways, not so much for himself but for the people, he loves. The Lord tells Moses that He would go with them and everything would be fine. When God gives us favor, we are not alone. He goes with us every step of the way to guide and lead us. Thank God for His favor. Where would we be without this blessing that we don’t deserve? Thank God today for the favor He has given unto you. Don’t be envious of another’s person’s favor. The same favor He has given to others, He will grant to you when you put your trust in Him.
