THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
GOD’S FAVOR IS FOR A LIFETIME
Let this truth sink down into your spirit today: God’s FAVOR is not for a season; it’s for a LIFETIME. How do we obtain God’s favor? Proverbs 3 tells us that when we honor His Word, when we obey His commands and walk in MERCY and TRUTH, that’s how we find FAVOR in God’s 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 God’s 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, “It’s not going to happen. It’s 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 it’s NOT temporary. It’s not seasonal. It doesn’t come and go. Thank You, God, for a LIFETIME of FAVOR!”
1 Peter 1:7, ESV
…so that the tested genuineness of your faith–more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire–may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
