Since the Bible declares God is not a respecter of persons, we know He loves us all equally, without exception. However, the level of favour upon a person’s life is a different matter. Throughout the Word, we are taught how God’s favour increases in the lives of those who choose to embrace His Word and live by its wisdom.
Faith in God and obedience to His Word attracts His favour to our lives. This is where humility steps in. Laying down our own will to completely surrender to God’s ways and direction in all we do is true humility. The result is incomparable to any life of blessing we can dream or imagine. The goodness and favour of God surrounds and overtakes those who place His will above their own with no hesitation, and delight in doing so!
God promises when we humble ourselves before Him, choosing His ways of love, forgiveness, and self-control, and paying careful attention to His leading – He will lift us up! Promotion and favour are a direct result of laying down our lives to follow His heart. Humble yourself before the Lord today and expect His favour to be drawn to you!
