Topic: It’s Called Favor
Psalm 84:11, NIV – For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
Joel Osteen 1 April 2021 Today Devotional Message
What God has in your future can’t be accomplished on your own. There are places He’s going to take you that you can’t get to by yourself. There will be obstacles that look too big, dreams that seem impossible. If it were only up to you, you’d get stuck. The good news is that God has bestowed on you something that gives you an advantage, that opens doors that you can’t open, that makes you stand out in the crowd. It’s called “favor.” Favor will cause good breaks to come to you that you don’t deserve. You weren’t next in line, but you got the promotion. That’s the favor of God. You’ve been faithful, honoring God. Get ready for favor. Get ready for an explosive blessing. God is about to do something unusual, something that you’ve never seen, promotion that you didn’t work for, and good breaks that you didn’t deserve. You can’t explain it or take credit for it. It’s the favor of God.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that Your favor has been upon my life in so many ways. Thank You for the countless things You’ve made happen for my good that I could never make happen. I am getting ready for explosive blessings that are gifts of Your favor that I don’t deserve. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
