Daniel 1:9 KJV
Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.
Favour is a gift you must consciously ask God for and be conscious of.
Many people are gifted, yet are also without favour.
Talent, skill and knowledge cannot substitute favour. They are good and can take us to certain places. However, the favour of the Almighty supersedes them all.
God’s favour plus your skill, talent and hard work will take you to greater heights.
The patriarchs in the Bible always prayed for favour in the eyes of God and men. They were conscious of it. They understood the benefit of favour and its effect in their lives.
Mary became the channel through which Jesus accessed the world because she was highly favoured by God.
Esther also was favoured by God and man.
Once you are favoured by God, you will get the best assignment on the earth. On the other hand, if you are favoured by men, you will be given the best task.
Favour does not mean laziness or receiving blessings without working.
+ It simply means you will be allowed to express your talents and gifts in a way that will bring about maximum benefit and satisfaction.
+ Doors will be opened up to you in places that seem difficult.
“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men”(Prov 22vs29).
Favour takes any hardworking person to greater heights. You may be talented or skilled yet you will need favour to reach the peak of whatever you do.
Scripture says, “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”(Eccl 9vs11).
+ Bread, riches and favour come from God directly. It is God who rewards our labour. Declare the favour of God in all you do relentlessly.
+ When you are favoured, people will want to associate with you.
+ And when you are favoured, people will not deal hard with you even when you make mistakes. Many people have been sacked from their jobs because they lack divine favour.
I command your destiny to come under the influence of favour. May favour form a protective canopy above your head and build a wall of defense around your life.
May Favour cover your errors and color your efforts in the mighty name of Jesus.
May you truly be blessed today and always.
