Topic: The Favour Factor
“May the favour of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands” – Psalms 90:17
I liken favour to salt or seasoning used in cooking. There is a much-needed oomph that salt gives to meals. You just know there is something missing when it is not added. In the same vein, favour is what makes our labour meaningful. It is the oomph that makes our efforts successful. After all, is said and done, it is that “special fragrance” that makes us loved by men and that makes them want to go out of their way to help us. Favour is the breath of God upon us that makes every element combine and work together in a divinely orchestrated way for our benefit. Favour is an essential ingredient for Financial Dominion.
We see this favour factor in the life of Joseph: “Joseph found favour in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned” (Genesis 39:4). Granted, Joseph was diligent and a hard worker, but it was the essential addition of God’s favour that crowned all his effort with success.
We must keep in mind that it is not about the fancy degree, or the man-know-man connection or the labour and toil. While all these things are also good and necessary, without the favour factor they won’t yield much!
Daily digest: “If the hand of God (favour) is in your business/career, you will prosper even in the desert”.
I declare that I am walking in God’s favour. I have found favour in the eyes of God and man. My smell is like the smell of the field that the Lord has blessed. Therefore, I am a magnet for blessing, success and victory!
