Summary: The scent of victory is in the air, all you have to do is, trust in Gods favor and ability to bring you the sweet taste of success every time!
God’s Favor Is For A Lifetime!
Psalm 30:1-5, AMP
1.I WILL extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
2.O Lord my God, I cried to You and You have healed me.
3.O Lord, You have brought my life up from Sheol (the place of the dead); You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit (the grave).
4.Sing to the Lord, O you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
5.For His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime or in His favor is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
One definition of the word favor by Webster is: special privileges or rights granted
Man’s favor, gives you an advantage for success in the natural.
God’s Favor, gives you an advantage in the supernatural,
I don’t know about you, but I prefer supernatural over natural anytime!
When you put God first, when you take care of His business and by that I mean,
Pay your tithe, give your time, witness and serve others, read His word and make Him the first priority in your life,
When you Focus on trusting in His ability instead of your own,
Good things, no that’s an understatement, Super natural things, will start to happen and continue to happen in your life,
Because when you do that, you open the door for His favor to come flooding into your life,
and at the same time, you slam it shut on the accuser and the things of the world. Praise God!!
When you walk in His Favor, you have the advantage for success, you have a God-given edge!
Someone may have wronged you in the past and it may seem as though, they got ahead by doing so.
Things are not always as they appear, even though problems, they come and they go, and people are unpredictable,
God is always in control of everything in your life!
No matter how bleak things may look in the natural, remember God is not tied to the natural!
One moment in His Supernatural Favor, can take anything wrong, turn it around and make it benefit you!
Any problem you will ever face, is just a bump in the road, and better days are closer than you think they are!
If anyone ever knew about what were talking about here, it was Joseph,
Sold into slavery not once but twice, accused wrongly and imprisoned,
There were several times it appeared he was down for the count, but he was never out,
Because he knew, he had the favor of God on his life and he kept telling himself,
God has plans for me, big plans, plans to prosper me and not harm me,
even though it seems dark now, it’s only for a moment, because my future looks bright,
When things would go wrong, as in life they sometimes do, he knew it was just another bump in the road,
It didn’t change anything, he knew with God on his side, he would still end up victorious and in the winners circle in the end! Praise God!
And you need to keep reminding yourself of the same thing, don’t be discouraged, be encouraged
Just say to yourself, I have an advantage, I have the Lifetime Favor of God on my life!!
God is in control of my destiny, My future is full of possibilities!
I serve a God of "the skies not even the limit," Praise God!
He’s working for me behind the scenes, fighting my battles for me and He’s never lost one yet!!
It may look discouraging right now, but things are not always as they appear,
And I am, I can and I will be encouraged, because as long as God is my partner,
No matter what happens, I’ll come out victorious on the other side.
And its just a matter of time before things change in my favor.
Far to many Christians want to give up, when just around the corner is their answer they’ve been believing God for,
The scent of victory is in the air, all you have to do is, trust in Gods favor and ability to bring you the sweet taste of success every time!
Hebrews 10:35,36 Amp.
35.Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward.
36.For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised.
Why would anyone want to give up, when just around the bend, is a great and glorious compensation of reward,
