The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion, but his favor is like dew on the grass. Proverbs 19:12.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
In the light of a king’s face is life, and his favor is like a cloud with the latter rain. Proverbs 16:15.
Favor is the story of your life. Divine Favor. But many of you are living beneath what I have provided for you.
Cherish your days by walking them out with Me. Live in an atmosphere of My love and you will never fail because love, true love that comes from My Spirit, never fails.
And this oneness of heart with Me and others in that radiant love is the glow that lit up the face of Moses when he was in My presence to converse with Me. But that was an outer glow that came from My face shining on Him in revelation light, My Word gives light. But now you have Jesus and the Holy Spirit living in you, your hope of glory, and the light is from within and does not fade for you are never out of My presence because I am within your born again spirit. You are the light of the world, for within you is the true light that enlightens every man, the Light of the world.
There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:9-13.
Just as the beacon of a light house can be seen from far distances so should your light shine showing the way of love to My throne to those who would run with you to the sweet fragrance of your anointing.
You are shining My light into the deep darkness of the world. And it will draw all men to Me. My favor in your life becomes your favor upon others as well. Blessed to be a blessing so all have abundance—grace upon grace. No limits, no measure—the overflow.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, where it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16.
Your spirit is the lamp that I light once you have received Jesus as Lord and it searches through all your innermost parts. I have saved you through and through. Beloved, forgiven, blessed and favored, is the story of your life. And the radiance of your life should be sharing that story with everyone who sees you. Look for the radiant face and you will know who is Mine. And people are attracted to the light that is in you. No follower of Mine shall ever walk in darkness, no! you shall have the light of life. Bring others into the light. Freely you have received, freely give.
For I rescued you out of the realm of darkness and translated you into the Kingdom of My beloved Son. I brought you out of the slavery of sin and death into which Adam had sold you, and now that I brough you out what do I tell you to do? Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
Do not shortchange yourself. I want to show you favor.
Speak My promises as yours and speak large. Most of you limit Me by what you say, you open your mouth to the wrong thing—speaking of lack, sickness, and disappointment. Whining and pining away in remorse, sickness, pain, and lack. That is NOT My Will for your life. It is Satan’s will. Adam embraced it as his new master, but you have a different master who is your pastor, the great good Shepherd that leads you out of lack to green pastures, living waters of healing peace, a table of plenty, and leads you through dark valleys right into the abundance of My house forever. And what do I tell you happens with Him as your Shepherd? Only goodness and lovingkindness PURSUE you all he days of your life. And how does happen? By following your great good Shepherd and obeying His voice. And you, who are His sheep (those who have received Him as Lord, Shepherd and great High Priest), hear His voice, know Him, and follow Him. And in Him it has pleased Me to give you the Kingdom. And that is favor.
Remember what fills you heart you will speak, whether harmful or helpful, evil or good, lack or abundance. You speak of what you love, are interested in, and have faith in. So watch what you are saying and stop limiting Me. Ask of Me all your heart desires and I will fulfill every request if you will listen to Me. And that is favor.
“I, the LORD, am your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt; open your mouth wide and I will fill it. But My people did not listen to My voice, and Israel did not hear and obey Me. So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their heart, to walk in their own devices. Oh that My people would listen to Me, that Israel would walk in My ways! I would quickly subdue their enemies and turn My hand against their adversaries. Those who hate the LORD would pretend obedience to Him, and their time of punishment would be forever. But I would feed you with the finest of the wheat, and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.” Psalm 81:10-16.
Hear and obey. I see unlimitedly and that is what I want you to see as well. Unlimited love, unlimited healing, unlimited Kingdom finances, unlimited blessings, unlimited forgiveness, and unlimited finances. And that is favor, unlimited favor on you every day. My face is shining on you to show you favor in every area, facet, and dimension of your life.
Favor is an act of kindness beyond what is due or usual which shows approval, support, or liking for someone. It is done by someone greater to raise another to a higher level—a promotion that is undeserved except for the fact that you are in that person’s favor.
There are a few different words in Hebrew that are translated as favor but they show different aspects of My favor in your life. The Hebrew word “ratson (רָצוֹן)” means My Will for your life but it is most often translated as “favor.” Proverbs 19:12; Proverbs 16:15. You see this in Psalm 5 in the line that “I surround you with favor as a shield.” You see from this that My Will for your life is one of favor—shalom and not evil to give you a future and a hope. And that to be in My perfect Will is living surrounded and protected from evil as a shield.
But let all who take refuge in You be glad, let them ever sing for joy; and You shelter them, that those who love Your name may exult in You. For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him with favor as with a shield. Psalm 5:11-12.
Living in the center of My Will for your life is the safest place for you to be no matter where you are or what is going on around you. Psalm 91 is a psalm of divine favor for your life. I am your secret place in which is perfect protection, deliverance, provision, and promotion.
“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With a long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation (Yeshuah).” Psalm 91:14-16.
Another Hebrew word used often that is translated as “favor” is chen (חֵן), which means both favor and grace. Psalm 84:11; Genesis 39:4. Grace is My divine life in you enabling you to have the skill and supernatural wisdom that enables you to be like Me in your daily life. And that is My favor upon you as well.
Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an Egyptian officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the bodyguard, bought him from the Ishmaelites, who had taken him down there. The LORD was with Joseph, so he became a prosperous and successful man. And he was in the house of his master, the Egyptian. Now his master saw that the LORD was with him and how the LORD caused all that he did to prosper in his hand. So Joseph found favor in his sight and became his personal servant; and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he owned he put in his charge. It came about that from the time he made him overseer in his house and over all that he owned, the LORD blessed the Egyptian’s house on account of Joseph; thus the LORD’s blessing was upon all that he owned, in the house and in the field. Genesis 39:1-5.
You see in the life of Joseph how My favor works in your life. My favor on and in you causes others to show you favor, when you please Me, even your enemies will show you favor and are at peace with you as the Egyptians did in giving their wealth to My people as I redeemed them out of slavery. Favor brings the Blessing of all you put your hands to. Psalm 1:1-3.
And how do you open up My favor upon you? I was with Joseph. Jesus explained that I was always with Him and never left Him alone since He always did what pleased Me. And what pleases Me? Faith. Without faith it is impossible to please Me because to draw near to Me you must believe that I AM and that I reward you when you seek Me, i.e., that I am good and gracious to you. That I show you favor beyond all you could ask or imagine.
And there we are back to obedience to My Word again for all good to manifest in your life. If you speak and live in accordance with My Word you will find favor and all My blessings will chase you down and overwhelm you. If you are willing and obey, if I am your delight, you will have the good of the land, in fact, the very best of all.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. Speak BIG and receive BIG. “Beautiful in God (“BIG”).
I fill your days with good things but you must authorize and release them by speaking them with faith. Start with your benefits in Psalm 103:1-5. Open your mouth wide and let Me fill your mouth with My Words for they are life to those who find them and health (healing medicine) to all their flesh. My Words are sweeter than honey.
I love you. Speak favor and let Me promote you. Favor often comes through other people but it is Me who inspires it, commands it, and is behind it. Like when Nehemiah asked the king to let him return and give him the funds to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. I showed him favor through the king.
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3.
