Some of you have come from generations of abuse, mistreatment, things that were not fair. That victim mentality can be passed from generation to generation. Yes, there was injustice in the past. Yes, there were things that were not fair, but this is a new day. The reason you’re reading this is because you’re the one to break the cycle. You’re the one to say, “I am not a victim. I am a victor. I’m going to set a new standard, I’m going to believe for better things, I’m going to live whole, free, expecting favor.”
It’s safe to assume that God doesn’t play favorites. To do otherwise would appear biased or unequal. However, let’s examine the Holy Bible. The Lord bestows favor on some people by utilizing them mightily, protecting them, and showering them with His grace. So, what is the favor of God Scripture?
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines favor as “approving consideration or attention.” Thus, we can imply that God’s favor is concrete proof that a person enjoys the approval of the Lord.
So, what would your life be like if God’s grace always showered down on you? What would change if opportunities presented themselves and you moved through them confident in God’s favor? If you knew without a doubt that God had chosen you as one of his favorites, how would that change how you approach every challenge? Do you think you could overcome your worries and anxieties?
