The principles to sustain God's divine favour.

in #steemchurch3 years ago

Favour is tangible evidence of the approval of God. Enjoying favour with God and man is one thing, maintaining that favour is another. God lavishes us with favour to be enjoyed in all spheres of our lives.

God favours the humble (prov. 3:33-34, james 4:6), and those who obey his commandments: Isaiah 66:2. Also, you must position yourself for divine favour by seeking God with all your heart: prov 8:35. Examples of people in the scripture that enjoyed God's favour include noah: Gen 6:8; Ruth 2:10; and Moses, jesus: Luke 2:52. You can enjoy favour from God and men.

Below are some principles that sustain divine favour

Consistent fellowship with God

Deut. 8:18-19. Favour brings many benefits and prosperity, though we become forgetful when they are unleashed on our lives. Despite the peace and victory that solomon enjoyed as king, he forsook God: 1kings 11:9. It is pathetic to forget the God that gave you everything. God wants you before your offering and tithe. He died for you, not your money.

Live a life of thanksgiving

1 thess 5:18. Thanksgiving is the will God in christ jesus for us all. Appreciate God with all your life so that he will do more.

Prayer

Dan 10:12-13. Don't just pray until something happens, pray to sustain the good things that happen. Daniel was relevant during the reign of four kings because he prayed to sustain his relevance by asking God for secret things.

If you don't have relationship with God now, he is calling you for a fresh start. Come to him and he won't cas your away.

Thanks for reading, change begins with you and I.

God doesn't lavish us with earthly blessings but in spiritual blessings.

(Ephesians 1:3-9 NIV) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. {4} For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love {5} he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will-- {6} to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. {7} In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace {8} that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. {9} And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,
