We need to consciously and daily declare and affirm the
Favor of God upon our lives!
We must never rule out the Favor of God! God s favor can and does dramatically change
our circumstances! We must keep looking and believing toward that end, Wherefore gird
up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace (charis favor) that
is to be brought unto you. Through these words Peter is instructing us to be aware of the
Favor of God at all times! Every time that we experience the Favor of God we need to
declare God s Favor right at that very moment that it has manifest itself!
The more that we declare the Favor of God; the more we will experience it! We should be
looking for God s Favor and when we see it we should declare, That s the Favor of God.
Praise God! When we begin to look for and then express affirmations regarding the Favor
of God, we will more often begin to expect and build faith in His favor. The more we have
faith in his favor the more favor we will receive! The Favor of God is a wonderfully
pleasant and vigorous cycle that we set into motion and subsequently experience!
The Favor of God will change every negative aspect in our lives! Let s notice the first time
that we find a derivative of the English word favor in the New Testament, Hail, thou
that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women (Luke
1:28). Luke also wrote the second closely associated occurrence of the word, And the
angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God (Luke 1:30).
After she received the message from the angel, Mary declared, be it unto me according to
thy word (Luke 1:38). Guess what Greek word was translated into that English word
favour? You got it, (charis favor)! The third time we find the word favor in the
New Testament, we discover it a directly references Jesus, And Jesus increased in
wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man (Luke 2:52). Jesus Grew in favor!
I am revealing a spiritual law to you. Like gravity laws, there are favor laws that
operate in the universe. I do not know, there may be angels who administer favor/disfavor
based upon a person s words. What I do know is that when we consciously declare God s
favor in our lives, soon thereafter, we abundantly receive!
Having God s Favor does not mean that we will never suffer trials! We will always face
trials; however, with God s favor the enemy will never triumph over us. Don t give up as
Peter said, Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the
grace (charis favor ) that is to be brought unto you. Peter exorts us to expect favor!
Because our words are agents or containers of spiritual power, all of these confessions from
our mouths have actually delayed and even stopped the Favor of God from coming into our
lives! This is not just a spiritual exercise; it is also a mental exercise! We cannot let our
mouths run away from our actual beliefs! The bible warns, Put away from thee a froward
mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee (Prov 4:24). It also states, Out of thine own
mouth will I judge thee (Luke 19:22). What about you, what is the word of your
testimony? For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be
condemned (Matt 12:37). You can begin to walk in a condition of almost constant Rhema
revelation from God! Grace (charis favor) and peace be multiplied unto you through
the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord (2 Peter 1:2). God wants us to walk by His
Notice the connection between the Favor of God and the Peace of God! We can increase
be multiplied in the Favor of God. The more that we expect favor, the less that we will
anticipate the fear of failure! This is not just an insignificant statement; it is a major
concept! Read it again; the more that we expect favor, the less that we will anticipate the
fear of failure! When we are expecting God s favor to be manifest in our lives, we will
not fear any outcome. Experiencing God s favor fosters a decreased fear of failure in us.
Heb 4:16, teaches us, Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace (charis
favor), that we may obtain mercy, and find grace (charis favor) to help in time of need.
We need to lean upon the throne of God s Divine Favor! We need to expect to find the
Favor of God there! This will change our lives. God wants us to become highly developed
in our expectation of his Divine Favor! Don t you believe that David expected God s
Favor during his battle with Goliath? Notice David s affirmation or what he said,
moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of
the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine (1 Sam 17:37).
We read, Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace (charis favor) that is in Christ
Jesus (2 Tim 2:1). Expecting the Favor of God can actually make us spiritually strong!
We are not to be weak in the Lord; rather, we must have a positive outlook with regard to
the Favor of God. We are the righteousness of God and the righteous are taught to expect
God s Divine Favor! The Psalms teach us, For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous;
with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield (Ps 5:12). God s favor changes
everything in the life of the righteous!
Your worst situation does not seem insurmountable when you actually expect the Favor of
God. And he said unto me, My grace (charis favor) is sufficient for thee (2 Cor 12:9).
Here we observe that Paul received a real revelation from God concerning the Favor of
God! Now notice what Paul said in that same vein just one chapter later, The grace
(charis favor) of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the
Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen (2 Cor 13:14).
