Tag Archive: favor


What if an angel appears to you, and says, “Hail, thou art highly favored and the Lord is with you.” Wouldn’t this be the most happiest moment of your life? Yes, it should be, because God is getting ready to do something powerfully significant in your life.

This is exactly what happened to Mary, Jesus’ mother (Luke 1:26-38).  She was highly favored among all the other women, not only in her city of Nazareth, but the entire world. This is so, that God chose her to be the mother of Jesus. He made this decision, because He knows Mary would be committed to the task he had given her. He also knew that Joseph was the perfect man to be called the father of Jesus. Together, they would nourish the Christ child through all the obstacles they would go through, so that God’s purpose could be fulfilled on earth.

Don’t get this all twisted. God loves everyone, but He knows who He can trust and depend on. He knows who will stay faithful, even when things seem like they are impossible. Notwithstanding, the faithful and favored person still holds true to God’s promises. This person will not runaway from the task when things get rough, but allows God to work through the situation for His glory to be manifested.

Being favored in God’s sight means He can trust you. He can tell you a secret, and you don’t run around telling the whole world, including the devil. He also knows that you seek Him and His Kingdom first, over your own agenda (Matthew 6:33).

God knows that you are obedient, and will follow instructions, even when others think you are not doing the right thing. He knows that you are humble. Therefore, when He blesses and favors you, you will be a blessing in giving Him glory, and not boasting to bring glory to yourself.  He also knows that you are a sinner, saved by grace, but you try to walk in a holy manner.  Furthermore, He knows that you have built a rock solid relationship with Him. In addition, you stay connected to Him through prayer, fasting, reading His words and worshipping Him in spirit and truth.

With that said, finding favor in God’s sight is not rocket science. It’s about keeping a covenant with Him. He needs people He can trust and depend on.

By and large, this new year, think on what you can do for God’s Kingdom, by putting His agenda first. In so doing, all things that you seek, He will give to you.  Not only so, but He will bless and highly favor you.

“Touch of Faith”

Have you been recently diagnosed with an ailment that turned your world upside down? Have you been dealing with a sickness for which the doctors do not have any permanent cure? A “Touch of Faith” can heal you from your ailment and return your life to normalcy today, if you just believe on Jesus.

Mark 5:25-34 told us of a woman who had been suffering many years from an issue of blood. She had spent all she had on many physicians. However, she grew rather worse. She heard that Jesus was in her town healing other people, and she decided she would go out to meet him. When she got there, the crowd was very thick, and she could not get very close to him. She thought to herself, “If I could just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” She did just that, and immediately the bleeding stopped.

Jesus, on the other hand, felt that virtue had gone out of his body, and immediately knew in himself, that someone had touched him. He asked, “Who touched my clothes?” His disciples were thinking that he must be crazy, because there were so many people around him, and anyone could have just brushed against his clothes. But Jesus insisted that it was more than just a mere brushing of his garment by someone in the crowd. He sensed that someone had touched him with a “Touch of Faith.” So he looked around to see who did it. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing that she had been healed, came and fell down at his feet, and told him the truth. He then said to her, “Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.”

A “Touch of Faith” can give you peace and heal you from your ailment today. It’s not over until God says it’s over. God sees you struggling with something today, and wants to tell you that faith can move the biggest mountain in your life, if you just trust and believe in him. He’s still in the miracle making business, and he’s still in the healing business. “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” (Luke 1:37)  Do not let your fear overcome your faith. Chose which direction you want to go today. Your life depends on the direction you take.
