Matthew 20:9,12 KJV
And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. [12] Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.

In Matthew 20, the field owner hired labourers for the same kind of work at various times of the day. They were hired severally at intervals of 6am, 9am, 12pm, 3pm and 5pm for the very same work for a full day’s salary.

Those who were hired earlier than others toiled in the hope that their wage would be higher than the ones who were hired much later.  However, much to their chagrin, when it was time to be paid, the field owner paid EVERYONE an equal amount.

There was a disgruntled air in the field even as the early morning workers resented being paid the same wages as those that were employed by 5pm. The Master told them he was justified because what he promised everyone was a day’s wage.

There may be people who started hustling as early as the beginning of the year. There are also those who are starting pretty late in the year. Fear not. The same Grace available to the ones who started earlier is also available to the late starters.
When the Favour of God is upon your life, what takes people years will be achieved by you in a matter of days.

No matter how late in the year it may be, Divine Favour shall speak for you. You shall succeed; not in your own strength but by the favour of God. End of the year miracles and the blessings of the yuletide shall conspire to accelerate your advancement in the name of Jesus.

It took faith in the vineyard owner for the labourers hired by 5pm to expect pay for a full day’s work. Their faith paid off. On your part, you must believe in the favour of God that you shall receive miracles of accelerated uplifting as the year ends.

The eleventh hour labourers were standing around expecting nothing when the vineyard owner chanced upon them. It shall not be by qualification but by Divine selection.

You must remember that in the affairs of life, favour has veto power. It does not respect equality or qualification, it only reacts to divine goodness

Shalom Beloved. Do have a favour filled day.
