Everyone wants their inheritance, especially if it is of considerable value, of some of real worth to them.

I am revealing to you in this blog that you have as part of your spiritual inheritance the favor of God which has greater benefit to you than any natural inheritance you could receive.  The favor of God is God’s ability, God’s empowerment, God’s anointing, God’s help if you well, God’s power, and plain and simple is God’s involvement in your affairs that makes life easier, more productive with favorable conditions, will eliminate the red tape of mere men that causes you a lot of heartache and headache, gives you promotions and blessings that you could never naturally expect, and on and on we could go of just how beneficial this inheritance is to you and you certainly need in this time in the earth.  With God’s favor you will reign as a king in life instead of being ruled over by negative circumstances and situations.

Well, let me just give you some good news right now about the favor of God.  This is the time, the set time for God to favor you!  How do I know this?  Because favor is part of your redemptive package purchased by the finished work of Christ and it is just the nature of your loving heavenly Father to lavish his favor on you and especially when things are tough, when things are difficult, when things seem impossible and there’s no way out.

Ps 102:13 You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her; the appointed time has come. NIV

Ps 102:13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. NKJV

As a child of God you should never rule out the favor of God in any or all the affairs of your life but instead continually keep looking and expecting the favor of God.  Be aware of the favor of God at all times and even in the most difficult situations.  That’s when the Lord really loves to pass on His favor.  And when His favor shows up, be sure to thank Him for it and always acknowledge His favor immediately by saying, “That’s the favor of God,” for every time you express God’s favor coming to you then more faith arises in you to receive more favor.

This favor of God has the potential of changing every negative aspect in your life.  Favor is also a spiritual law and just as you can expect the law of gravity to work and the law of lift to work when you need it; when you are in a difficult situation is when you need the law of the favor of God to work for you and bring you out and it will work for you when you expect it.

1 Peter 1:13 So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor)…AMP

I am telling you that even in your worst situation, when you have the most insurmountable difficulties in your life, set your hope wholly, completely, unchangeably on the favor of God.

2 Cor 12:9 But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. AMP

When life is the toughest and things just couldn’t get any worse it seems, you will find that the favor of God will strengthen you mentally, emotionally and spiritually to keep your faith in God’s promises so you can see this same favor bring forth what was promised.  With the grace of God to enable you, as this scripture tells you, you will see the strength and the power of God more powerfully when you are the weakest, you have no strength, and you have no reason to believe things are going to change.  This is the time for the favor of God to work for you most effectively.  Just throw yourself on the mercy and the grace of God that has never failed anyone who has stepped out on the mercy and grace or the favor of God.  God with His mercy and grace or favor is waiting somewhere near the exit doors of the whole mess you may find yourself experiencing.  No good thing, including His favor, does the Lord withhold from you and especially when you need His help.

Heb 4:16 Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it]. AMP

Going to the throne room to receive His grace, His favor, His help is precisely what the Lord wants you to do.  Even in your failures He wants you to run to the Throne Room and find His grace to help you.  The Lord of mercy and grace and favor sits on His throne awaiting for you to come and receive His help and it will be appropriate help, well-timed help, coming just when you need it.

Is there a mountain, a human obstacle that is standing in your way right now?  Read this scripture below and you will see what happens to “great mountains, mere human obstacles” when the favor of God shows up.

Zech 4:6-7 Then he said to me, This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit…. says the Lord of hosts. 7 For who are you, O great mountain [of human obstacles]? Before Zerubbabel [who with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was undertaking the rebuilding of the temple, before him] you shall become a plain [a mere molehill]! And he shall bring forth the finishing gable stone [of the new temple] with loud shoutings of the people, crying, Grace, grace to it!  AMP

Zerubbabel’s great mountain (of human obstacles) was reduced to a mere molehill when the people cried out “Grace, grace to it!”  They were crying out, “Favor, favor to it!”  That’s what you and I have to cry out for when mere human obstacles stare us in the face as “great mountains”.  But they are just mere human obstacles the God’s grace will reduce to molehills and have no potential to confront us any longer.  This man Zerubbabel was facing this great mountain for seventeen years but once they called out, “Favor, favor to it!”  Then the mountain was gone!

God’s favor is lavish.  God wants to lavish his favor on you.

Ps 5:12 For You, Lord, will bless the [uncompromisingly] righteous [him who is upright and in right standing with You]; as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill (pleasure and favor). AMP

Ps 30:5 …his favor lasts a lifetime! NLT

Did you get that last scripture?  God’s favor is yours for your whole lifetime!

Determine that you are going to become more favor minded and never give up on the favor of God.  You can expect raises in your pay and promotions even when there are no raises and no promotions being given in the company because you have God’s favor through Christ Jesus.  You cannot predict when or how the favor will manifest; you can only have faith that it will show up!

It is time, it is the set time for the Lord to unlock all manner of favor on you right now and not just a little favor but an abundance of favor.

2 Cor 9:8 And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].  AMP

Expect today to receive God’s favor that is extravagant, beyond measure.  It’s your spiritual inheritance heaven has given to you in the Last Will and Testament of Jesus Christ called the New Testament.  This inheritance is so important to us and so I believe this is why Peter and Paul ended they letters to the churches with praying for God’s favor and peace be multiplied to them.

2 Peter 1:2 May grace (God’s favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. AMP

So I end this blog with my prayer for you, that the grace, the favor of God and His peace be multiplied to you now, in Jesus’ Name.  Amen.

Use this confession daily to begin to expect God’s favor in your life.

God’s Favor Confession:

I am a child of God and God’s favor is on my life.  This is the time the Lord is unlocking and releasing all manner of favor on me (Your name).  And I remember God’s Kingdom doesn’t operate by favorite but by favor.  The favor of God is producing restoration of everything the enemy has stolen from me and I expect restoration now.  This is the time to remember in my life because the LORD GOD is moving in every area of my life and those around me will know that God is exalted in my life.  I walk in the favor and the blessing of the Lord every day of my life.  The favor of God goes before me and produces success in my life!  The favor of God opens doors for me that no man can shut. The favor of God is manifesting every day in my life!  By the favor of God I will not be defeated but rather enjoy victory after victory!  The favor of God is on my life and the enemy never triumphs over me!  Others recognize the favor of God on my life. God’s favor is overtaking my life no matter where I live, no matter the economy of my nation or the world and no matter where I go in the earth! This is my set time for God’s favor.
