I went to church today and totally enjoyed developin the topic of favour. i picked up a couple of things, there was so much info...
Favour is an active force of gravity and although we cant see it but without it we could not exist. We depend on it even thou we cant see it..
The more you trust in God- the more favor begins to open up for you. Although we all have favour but when we begin to exericise it, it grows.
Favor is attached by the power you give it.
goodness and mercy may follow me all of my life. that's God's favour that is attached to us...
When we are persifear to a favour which we do not want to, but we do it joyfully we strengthen ourselves.
this is from a wee website.. it helps to understand such a big thing...
The more we please God, the more we will be favored by Him. Also, it is important not to think of this favor in material or worldly terms. God's favor most likely will be given in spiritual blessings more than in material blessings.
Here are some of the ways by which we obtain the favor of the Lord:
By praying unto the Lord (Job 33:26).
By keeping the commandments of the Lord (Proverbs 3:1-4).
By seeking and finding God's wisdom (Proverbs 8:35).
By diligently seeking good (Proverbs 11:27; 12:2).
By living righteously (Proverbs 14:9).
There are many benefits of being in the favor of the Lord. Here are some of them:
Our petitions are more likely to be granted (Esther 7:3).
God will compass us with a shield (Psalm 5:12).
We will receive life (Psalm 30:5).
Our enemies will not triumph over us (Psalm 41:11).
God will show mercy (Psalm 119:58).
