Favor that Makes You Useful

| 1:24 min read |

You’re favored by God! You’re the object of God’s love, grace, and goodness. He has done, is doing and plans to do favorable things in your life!

Life changes when we believe in the favor of God—when we know that it’s real and that it’s promised to us! Our thinking and actions improve when we live with an awareness of God’s favor. Our expectations change. We begin looking for evidence of God’s presence and blessings around us.

God’s favor enables us to be fruitfully used by God to make a difference.

Do you remember Noah? Look at what the Bible says about him in Genesis 6:8 (NIV) “But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.”

In the midst of a very evil world, God looked down and extended His favor to a man named Noah. Through His favor, God used Noah to preach to a lost world and to preserve the seed of humanity and make it fruitful following the great flood.

Do you remember a young girl named Mary from Nazareth? Look at what the Bible says about her in Luke 1:30 (NIV) “But the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.’”

The favor of God in Mary’s life resulted in the birth of the Messiah. She was used by God because of the favor of God.

Just like Noah and Mary served God’s plans, God has a plan for you too. His favor over your life will guide you to do what He created you to do. Look for the signs of His favor directing your life!
