“…His favor is for a lifetime…”
(Psalm 30:5, AMP)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
One definition of the word
“favor” is an advantage for success. When you put God first, when you obey His
commands, you open the door for His favor — you have the advantage for success!
Even if someone may have wronged you and it looks like they have the upper
hand, even if it looks like things are never going to change, you need to keep
reminding yourself, “I have an advantage. God is in control of my destiny. He’s
fighting my battles for me. He is my vindicator. And it’s just a matter of time
before things change in my favor.”
I love the scripture in Hebrews
that says, “Don’t cast away your confidence.” One translation says, “…for
payday is coming.” In the difficult times, you have to remind yourself that
payday is on its way. God is a faithful God. If you’ll keep doing the right
thing, honoring Him and expecting His favor, God has promised He will pay you
back. He will restore everything in your life that the enemy has stolen so you
can live the abundant life He has promised to you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father in heaven, thank You for Your grace, mercy and
everlasting favor. I open my heart and mind to You and receive everything You
have for me. Thank You for restoring and healing every area of my life. In
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
