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!
