Supernatural Favor!

“And the LORD had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians” Exodus 12:12:36.

Supernatural favor is from the Lord and we are enjoying it from the day we were born again. Wherever the Lord took us we enjoyed the supernatural favor of the people whom God had arranged for us. These people had some sort of affection, kindness and compassion towards us and had gone out of the way to help us. Dear reader, you might be enjoying the same supernatural favor wherever you are right now.

Throughout the Holy Bible we find God had given supernatural favor to His children wherever they went. In Exodus we find the Israelites were given favor by the Egyptians who gave them a hard time while in slavery. But when it was time to leave Egypt, they loaded the Israelites with silver and gold and the word says that they plundered the Egyptians.

In Genesis 39:4 we read how Joseph found favor in the sight of Potiphar and how he made him overseer of his house and eventually he put everything under Joseph’s authority. Now when Potiphar turned Joseph into prison, the keeper of the prison had supernatural favor on Joseph. We read in Genesis 39:21 “But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.” Eventually the keeper of the prison handed him over the supervision of the prison. This is how God’s children will be shown favor and in due course of time they will be elevated.

How does this happen? Isn’t it surprising? Well this was much amazing to us too. But this is now a daily affair for us. People whom we have not met in our lives come running to help us. I remember once when my wife was about to board a bus to catch a flight a man came running towards her out of nowhere and got hold of the two suitcases she had and put them into the bus for her. Well, she was wondering who would help her and here comes a guy to help her.

I pray that wherever you are, may you be highly favored by the people around you. If you find a supervisor who is not in your favor pray to the Lord and I am sure that today the Lord is going to touch his or her heart in your favor.

Be highly favored and be blessed!

Promise of the Day

 Isiah 41 : 10-20
  Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
   Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
   Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
   For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
   Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
   Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.
   Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.
   When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
   I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together:
  That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.

Deuteronomy 28:12

The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
Deuteronomy 28:13

And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.
