THE DAY OF FAVOUR
Memorise: For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12
Read: Esther 5:1-3, Bible in one year: Isaiah 32:9-35:10, Acts 7:23-43
Queen Esther found favour in the sight of the king and she was promised blessings up to one half of the kingdom. There are lots of lessons in the passage before us. First of these is that the king’s eyes located Esther. 1st Samuel 16:11-13 tells us how favour located David while he was watching over the flock of his father. Mark 5:1-15 also narrates how favour located the mad man of
in the graveyard. A sister who had
been looking for a husband once attended a funeral service. In attendance also
was a brother who had also been looking for a wife. One seeing her, he
concluded that if the sister could look that beautiful in the mourning clothes,
she would look awesome when in high spirits. There and then, he concluded to go
after her hand in marriage. This shows that favour can locate you anywhere you
The king did not just see Esther, he focused on her. When your day of favour comes, God will not just glance at you, He will focus on you. The day favour beamed on the sick man at
, Jesus located him for healing (John
5:5-6). There was a man who had two doctorate degrees but could not get a job.
When this man was brought to us he was unkempt as if he never attended school.
We introduced him to Jesus and prayed with him. Before he got to him hometown
that day, favour located him and people in his local government started looking
for him with several job opportunities. Another story of favour is that of a
lady whose mother would not allow her to get married for fear of being
neglected by her after marriage. After some words of prayer of this sister,
there was deliverance. This sister had been in church for a long time, but when
God’s favour located her, she suddenly got a suitor within one week. My prayer
for you is that whatever is blocking the view of those who should favour you
shall be removed this season in Jesus’ Name. Bethesda
The only obstacle to divine favour is unrighteousness. The Bible in Psalm 5:12 says:
“For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
I therefore appeal to you to surrender your life to Jesus Christ, the Saviour of mankind, and begin to live a life acceptable to God for divine favour.
Father, please let your favour locate me for breakthrough today in Jesus’ Name.
