How do we obtain favor?......... Part I


If you are willing and you are obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land.


But if you refuse and you rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword.

For the mouth of Yahweh has spoken.”   Isa. 1:19-20 LEB

 

You may ask, “How can we obtain favor?”   “What do we need to do to walk in God’s favor?”

Notice, at the beginning, and ending of these verses there is a small but big word. "IF!"

Remember favor is a deliberate design by God to reward you for acts of obedience.

Favor is not a mere miracle but a reward for faithfulness!

One of the ways that favor is unleashed in your life is by, you’re desire for wisdom!


A wise hearts look for opportunities to sow favor.


In Proverbs 8:32-35, God say’s, Listen, my children.  You are blessed if you keep My ways. Hear My instructions and be wise. Don’t disobey Me in this! Blessed is the man who listens to Me and who watches and waits at the door.  He tells us whoever finds Me finds life and obtains favor from God!

Diligence creates favor! 

Proverbs 13:4: “The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing, but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.”   (NKJV)


Another way to obtain favor is to have an understanding heart.  Listening with your heart to understand people and their needs brings favor.

Proverbs 13:15: “Good understanding gains favor, but the way of the unfaithful is hard.”  (NKJV)
