Walk in your favor! Favor is for the righteous, the faithful, those who diligently seek God — “Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield” (Psalm 5:12). Favor is your protection, your your power and your promise.
The righteous don’t chase signs (John 4:48), the righteous chase God: “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). You are the sign, the hope that God created to prove to the world that God is real (John 12:32).
“The favor hedge is built by recognizing, believing, receiving, and declaring the favor of God us upon my life. It requires a mindset that believes God’s favor is for me.” If God said He is faithful to keep His covenant to those who love him and keep His commandments, that settles it: “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19).
For those who believe, we need not seek prophecy for profit. We are the prophecy — God’s covenant with us is sealed and is fulfilled through faith and obedience: “Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments” (Deuteronomy 7:9, Hebrews 11:6). It’s time for this generation of believers to walk out of the wilderness of religion and into the promise of favor. We don’t have to stand in lines to receive what God has for us, we have to stand up and do what God said do.
What am I saying? It’s time for a shift. It’s time to stop doing end zone dances in church without scoring in life. It’s time to stop purchasing prophecy to bypass obedience. It’s time to stop standing in lines asking man to prophecy to us for what God already promised to us. It’s time to stop waiting on a miracle and start praising God for being the miracle. Its time to walk in our favor, and surround ourselves with folks who build us up and sharpen us for the fights in life (Proverbs 17:17, 27:17; Hebrews 10:24).
You have what it takes to do what God said you could do, be who God said you could be and go where God said you could go. We don’t need more faith, we have to work out our faith (Philippians 2:12). We have to push, press, and apply word to the battles, the storms, the set backs, the tests and the trials in life. We have to take a stand and teach against expecting the privileges of power without the responsibilities of power (James 2:14-26).
Rise up. You were created to be great! Favor feeds your purpose, fans your passions, manifests signs and wonders, and enables you to walk in victory (John 10:10). Own your power, walk in a favor mindset! The world didn’t give it to you and the world cannot take it away. When you walk in a favor mindset, you walk in the abundance of God, the wisdom of God, the power of God overflowing (2 Corinthians 9:8). They didn’t leave you, favor removed them. You didn’t lose, favor protected you from winning a loss. It’s not over, favor is working all things together for your good.
Get plugged into and constantly feed yourself with Truth and divine wisdom (Proverbs 4:7, Hosea 4:6). Find your tribe, your group, your family of believers who have heard the promise and plan of God for your life. Find your tribe that worships and grows together without having to pretend like they have it all together — a miracle needs room to grow. Find a powerhouse church and plug in, you cannot win in life without hearing the unadulterated, uncut and uncluttered word of God for your life (Romans 10:17).
The favor of God is resting over your life. Your season is now, and God is calling you out of the old and into the new — every area of your life is about to change! “Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!” (Psalm 90:17).
