Hebrews 11:6 “Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.
There is much that has been said over the last 5 years on the subject matter of the “favor of God.” Some are criticized of only preaching about getting God’s favor in your life.
I do believe that I have caught myself many times in the last year thinking about getting the favor of God. I am obviously looking for God’s blessings. Why not?
As a Believer, you need to understand that you already have the favor of God. God’s favor or pleasure about you began on the day and moment that you accepted Jesus Christ in faith as your Savior and Lord. Yes, that day when you became born-again. In that very moment the angels in Heaven rejoiced. You pleased God through your acceptance of Christ, by Grace, through Faith.
Many of us tend to forget God’s grace, and in our minds, fall from God’s pleasure. We then get caught in a self imposed trap, striving through works to please God. It’s almost as though we are living as though we have lost His pleasure and His favor. Nothing is farther from the truth.
The day that you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior you pleased God. That pleasure will continue for eternity.
Today, you remain in that pleasure. Claim your sonship.
The Bible tells us that we are new creatures in Christ. When you became a new creature in the Lord Jesus Christ, the favor of God was bestowed upon you. That is a truth that will never go away.
Praise the Lord.
Have a blessed day.
