Welcome to AUGUST
Our Month of DIVINE FAVOUR
Psalm 5:12, Psalm 102:13
Favour means to be preferred; to receive a generous preferential treatment; having an advantage over others, benefitting from an act of kindness beyond what is due to you; endorsement; help rendered to you without reference to what you have done.
The favour of God makes a man stand out among his contemporaries. For instance Esther was selected among several other beautiful ladies that were qualified to be queen - Esther 2:15-17. Naturally speaking, David was the most unqualified person for anointing in his family, but God rejected others in order to select him. 1 Samuel 16:11-13.
It was favour that made Jabez receive answers to all his prayers - 1Chronicles: 4:9-10 and brought help to the man by the pool of Bethesda John 5:1-15. Even when a man is due for destruction, favour makes him to be called by God to do great works - Acts 9:1-6.
Divine favour brings about great results where human effort has failed - Luke 5:1-6. It is sometimes difficult to reconcile your little effort and the bountiful result that God provides by divine favour. I speak to you by the word of God, that your result will far exceed your effort in Jesus Christ’ name.
When a man is always receiving kindness from others as a result of God’s hand on his life, it is divine favour. Throughout the turbulent times in the life of Joseph, there was always someone to help him and his relevance did not diminish.
I pray that the favour of God will be evident in your life. When others are long gone, you will still be standing. I declare over your life that by the favour of God, nobody will be able to shake you or remove you from where God has placed you in Jesus name.
