Favor Isn’t Fair

Divider

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands.

Psalm 90:17


Abraham had the favor of God on his life when he was called to go to an unknown land and become the father of many nations. Jacob had the favor of God on his life when he left his homeland and became more successful than his father-in-law. Joseph had the favor of God when he was taken as a slave, became leader over Potiphar’s home, then leader of the prisoners (when he was falsely accused), and eventually second in command over the nation of Egypt. Moses had the favor of God when he was spared being killed as a baby and rose up to lead the Israelites to the Promised Land. David had the favor of God when he rose up from being a young, unknown shepherd boy to one of the greatest kings of Israel and his seed being chosen as the Messiah of the world.

What did any of these people do to earn the favor of God? Absolutely nothing. God put His favor on them for His own purposes and plan, even though many of them failed in their personal lives. The favor of God wasn’t fair, but it was deliberate, evident, and lasting. Just as with Abraham and the others mentioned above, there is great favor on those who put their trust in Jesus Christ.

Because of the favor of God, we can have peace in the midst of chaos, we can have joy in the midst of trials, and we can have the presence of Jesus in the midst of demons. God’s favor is upon us because of Jesus Christ and not because of anything we have done. He gives favor because of His unconditional love for us.

Prayer

Dear Lord, thank You for Your favor on my life. Help me to walk in the confidence of Your favor in every situation. Amen.

In His Service,
