So what does it mean to walk in the favor of God?
The biblical definition of favor means gaining approval, acceptance, special benefits or blessings.
When it comes to favor there is also a close connection among favor, grace, and mercy,
The favor that people receive from God depends on his good pleasure and is often extended in response to prayer or righteous living.
You can actually grow in favor,
1 Samuel 2:26
Now the boy Samuel was growing in stature and in favor both with the LORD and with men.
And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Walking in the favor of God does not mean that you will not have trouble or face challenges at one point or another in your life,
What it means is that though facing all these things, you will clearly see God’s hand in your life as you continue to believe and to put all your trust and faith in him.
Regardless of the storms going on around you, the circumstances we all face at some point in our lives.
We are told in the book of Genesis 6:8-9 that Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time,
and he walked faithfully with God.
But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
Noah had his fair share of troubles during his time but it didn’t keep him from walking
faithfully with God.
The same goes for Abraham
Because he believed the Lord, it was counted to him as righteousness.
Favor comes from believing in Jesus Christ,
this includes all the spiritual blessings we have received in the heavenly realms from the Father because we are united with Christ.
Also all the promises we have also received in Christ that are “Yes” and “Amen”
2 Corinthians 1:20
When we walk with God as with our closest friend. We begin to see and appreciate the little blessings that God provides for our enjoyment
Blessings that we once took for granted.
Which also include the doors of opportunity that God opens in our lives.
Times when God makes a way for you in your life where there was no way.
God is the solution to all your problems,
He is the way maker and
a miracle worker in your life
God is the source of divine favor in your life as a believer in Christ.
He is all powerful, all knowing and ever present.
That is who God is and much much more.
May you continue to walk in the divine favor of God as you continue to trust and obey him in every area of your lives.
