For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
Do you need God’s favor on your life today? Favor and blessing comes in all shapes and sizes and I’ll tell you what, I’ll take it!
Don’t be afraid to ask God for His favor! Have you ever read the Prayer of Jabez? 1 Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested. There is a book written by Bruce Wilkinson on that one verse that you should read if you haven’t, it is just a little book but it is packed with powerful truth.
Be bold! Go for it and ask Him for all the blessing and favor He can possibly give you and not just you, maybe today would be a great day to ask God for favor on someone else’s life! What have you got to lose? The Bible says, You have not because you don’t ask or you ask for the wrong reasons. Start claiming God’s blessing today! Once again, I am not promoting name it and claim it, there is a huge difference.
I have even heard of some parents who have gone back to blessing their children like they use to in the Old Testament. They speak blessings over their children, claiming God’s favor over their lives! It is always better to speak the positive and claim God’s blessing than it is to be negative! The best is yet to come!
The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender,
religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside we
ALL believe that we are above-average drivers. -Anonymous
