"The Favor of God"

  • Favor is the special affection of God toward you that releases an influence on you, so that others are inclined to like you or to cooperate with you.
  • God likes you. He loves you and He wants you to be successful in the plans that He has for you.
  • Daniel 11:32  He will flatten those who have violated the covenant and win them over to his side.  But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him. 
  • Mercy keeps us until we accept Christ.
Examples of God's favor:
Joseph, Ruth, Hannah, Nehemiah, Ester and King David all found favor with God.

Thought for the Day:
Romans 8:39 
Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 Samuel 17:20
2 Corinthians 10: 3-5
"David's Other Giants"

1 Samuel 17:20 - Early in the morning David left the flock with a shepherd, loaded up and set out, as Jesse had directed. He reached the camp as the army was going out to its battle positions, shouting the war cry.

2 Corinthians 10: 3-5 - For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
We are called to serve and know that spiritual warfare is always going on.
Jesus overcame the world so that our going through would be easier.

3 Giants to overcome
1. Ourselves
We  wage wars within ourselves.
Try the spirit by the spirit.
Every good and perfect thing comes from God.
So you think in your heart, so you are.

2. Comfort Zone
We need to step out of our comfort zone and experience what God has in store for us.
Challenge our faith.

3. Fear 
 False  Evident Appearing Real
We need to remember that God is the author and finisher of our faith.
God has given us love, power and a sound mind.
