Walking in the favor 2

Walking in His Favor Part 2

Favor- a special attention or preference shown, gracious acts of kindness with rights and privileges granted. 
Who does God favor

1. Those who are in covenant with him.  

      Genesis 12 

2. The righteous 

      1 Peter 3:12

3. Those who are merciful and speak the truth. 

      Proverbs 3:3-4. 

4. The repenting sinner seeking salvation of the lord. 

      Favor in the form of mercy and grace. 

      Jeremiah 26:19Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all Judah put him at all to death? did he not fear the Lord, and besought the Lord, and the Lord Repented him of the evil which he had pronounced against them? Thus might we procure great evil against our souls.

Week 2

Favor is in the hand of God

Favor- a special attention or preference shown, gracious acts of kindness with rights and privileges granted. 
If it is in the hand. It can be released or withheld. 
Favor is in the hand of God

It is not for you to decide it is not in your control. Your not favored just because you say you are. It is in Gods hand he is sovereign. (Don’t get me wrong I believe in the power of the tongue. If you place your faith in God. I believe you will have whatsoever you say. God word is true) however, just as Esau found to be true. Just because you tell the father to bless you doesn’t mean there is a blessing available to you. 

Favor is in Gods hands. Therefor we must seek his favor we must entreat his favor. 

Ecclesiastes 10:7 I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.

****God exalts some and humbles others. He increases and decreases. Sets up one and removes another. favor is in Gods hand 

Daniel 2:20-22Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

Psalm 75:4-7 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn: Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. ( horn position of authority -Pride and arrogance) For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. (It does not come from those around four from the devil below you) But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
Examples; Daniel, Joseph, Esther, Samuel and Moses, and Arron 
It just might be time for a promotion – are you ready?
The word of God says, “He raiseth up the poor out of the dust and lifteth up the beggar from the dung hill to set them among princes and make them inherit the throne of glory…” (I Sam. 2:8). 
Favor is the exalting power of God.
– favor is not a foreign thing and it is especially not foreign to God’s church. For favor is the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. To walk in the favor of God is to walk in the exalting power of the Holy Spirit. 
The baptism of the Holy Ghost is the outpouring of His divine favor. 

the baptism of the spirit is more than toungs. It is more than gifts. It is more than fruit. It is the producing force of favor. 

 

John 14:26 says that the holy Ghost is the advocate or helper. 
Ask for it

Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

But we must get our minds right. 

The Holy Ghost did not come to exalt you but that you should exalt the lord. 
So as you increase in favor the Lord is exalted. 

The favor attract the blessing of the Lord and turns situations to your good. 

Blessing – the empowerment to prosper. 
Proverbs 10:22The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. (No painful toil)

Abraham prospered everywhere he went 
Genesis 13:2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. (He was blessed in more than one way his portfolio was diversified.) 
**He prospered in choices he made
**Even when he preferred others. He took what was left and wound up more blessed than the first. 

Blessed is the man psalm 1
Mary was highly favored

Luke 1:28 highly favored of God

favored for her purity 
Isaiah 7:14 the sign shall be. a virgin shall bare a son

Nothing unusual about a young woman giving birth. The requirement was virgin. Pure 
Purity was tested. 

Nazareth was a city of about 15-20,000. It was located about seventy miles northeast. It sat on a hill overlooking the Roman Road that traveled between the cities of Tyre and Sidon and Jerusalem. Nazareth was a stopover point between two cities. Roman soldiers and Greek merchants traveled that road continually, It was a hotbed of corruption.  
Nathaniel said in John 1:46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see. 

        
**Gods favor includes increase of substance and the fullness of spiritual gifts. 
Deuteronomy 30 return and restore 

2. Gods favor is both natural and supernatural.
