Abundant Life Comes from the Favor of God

There is nothing like the favor of God. God’s favor opens doors that no man can open. It brings prosperity and breakthroughs and makes things easy for you that are difficult for others. You don’t want to live without the favor of God on your life.

Favor means “grace”; “that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness” and “goodwill, benefit, bounty, reward.” If you look up the Hebrew and Greek definitions of prosperity, many of these words carry over into favor as well.

Favor is goodwill. This is God’s kindness and benevolence given to those who love Him. Favor will release great blessings, including prosperity, health, opportunity, and advancement. The Bible records numerous examples of God’s favor upon His people causing them to experience many breakthroughs. Favor is God’s loving-kindness.

Joseph experienced God’s favor and went from prison to the palace. God will do the same for you. He can change your circumstances in one day no matter where you are in life. This is what happens when the favor of God is on your life.

Esther also operated in the favor of God. She “obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her,” and “the king loved Esther more than any other woman because she had gained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins. So he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti” (Est. 2:15, 17). She became queen, even though the kingdom was full of beautiful women who wanted to marry the king, all because she had the favor of God on her life.

God’s favor on King Solomon caused him to rise to unparalleled levels of greatness and

prosperity. Like Joseph and Esther, he had what I call the favor advantage. Because of the favor

of God on his life, Solomon became the wealthiest and greatest king of his day.

We don’t need luck. We need the favor of God. When you have God’s favor and blessing, there is nothing in life that can hold you down.

When the favor of the Lord is on your life, others will recognize it.

The favor of God on your life is one of the most powerful things that can be released to you. Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (KJV). God says, “You don’t need money. You need My favor.” You need His shalom—the full measure of peace—to operate in your life.

This is His gift to you if you are in covenant with Him as His child. God blesses His

people and rescues them. Just as He did with the Israelites, God loved you and chose you despite who you are and what you have done. You are elected by God. You were chosen before the foundation of the world. He chose you. It wasn’t because of anything you’d done. That is His favor!
