Being Favor-Minded

Description

Do yourself a favor... don’t compare another person's favor with your favor. God has favor tailored just for you!

WHEN FAVOR IS ON A PERSON’S LIFE, IT OVERFLOWS TO THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM. I CALL IT THE “FAVOR SPLASH"... GOD’S FAVOR ON YOU IS SPLASHING ON ME!

If you are trouble-minded you will see trouble around every turn. If you are anger-minded you will see reasons to be angry. If you are poverty-minded you will see yourself poor. But if you are favor-minded, you will experience increasing favor.

As a man thinks in his heart, so is he... (Proverbs 23:7 KJV).

When you think favor and believe you have favor and expect favor, you literally attract favor. It’s like a magnetic force.

Yesterday’s favor is not today’s favor.

When the children of Israel tried to store yesterday’s manna in the wilderness, it went bad because God had new fresh manna every day that He wanted them to experience. The best way to honor the past is to not get stuck in it! Stay creative, stay confident in today’s supply. Look for the fresh and listen for the new!

Somebody else’s favor is not your favor.

Do yourself a favor... don’t compare someone else’s favor with your favor! God has favor tailored just for you. Don’t envy or compete or compare with other people who have favor and don’t try to hold other people back from experiencing favor.

When favor is on a person’s life, it overflows to the people around them.

I call it the “favor splash"... God’s favor on you is splashing on me!

  • The Lord has blessed me because of you (Genesis 30:27, MSG).
  • Joseph’s favor blessed Pharoah and the nation of Egypt.
  • Jacob’s favor blessed his family, even his evil boss and father-in-law, Laban.

People who oppose you can’t stop God’s favor.

For 21 years Laban cheated Jacob out of his wages… Laban lied to and took advantage of Jacob. But Jacob was poised and stood tall in every setback, through every injustice, he continued to create value and work hard and make wise choices.

  • Don’t assume it’s always best to defend yourself.
  • Don’t use any energy retaliating against people who do you wrong.
  • Don’t get drawn into strife and sedition that will occupy your mind and waste your time.
  • If you keep your poise and confidence, God can use “Labans” of your life to bless you.

Don’t worry about the people who oppose you—they can’t stop God’s favor! Be confident in God’s favor... it’s never-ending, never runs out, and is always around us and with us.

My prayer for you is that you will think favor, expect favor, and look for favor. Be favor-minded and watch God’s increasing favor over your life.
