Psalm 119:57-64: CHETH: ” Thou art my portion. O Lord: I have said that I would keep thy words.
I entreated thy favor with my whole heart: be merciful to me according to thy word.
I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten thy law.
At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgements(justice). I am a companion of all them that fear thee, all of them that keep thy precepts.
The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy (lovingkindness); teach me thy statutes.”
There is no great an influence on our lives as the favor of the Living God. Luke 2:52, tells us of Jesus, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in FAVOR with God and man.”
The favor of God is simply bestowed on us from the goodness and kindness of God, just as parent to a child. He gives us favor to bless us, help us, and grow us.
So pray for that favor TODAY, ask for his favor for you, your family and you love and as you study, pray and grow in him expect that favored to be increased in all areas of your life.
And if you have made mistakes, messed up, know we ALL have!
That is part of being the imperfect beings that we are,God wants only that we repent, ask him for forgiveness, ACCEPT that forgiveness and FORGET those sins that he had forgiven us for, just as HE FORGETS them.
Psalm 30:5: “For his anger endureth (lasts) but a moment; IN HIS FAVOR IS LIFE; weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning” His favor is life, bringing renewal and revival to all areas of our lives, so ask him for that favor today and see the blessing and provision of God in ways you never thought possible.
Love & Peace till next time! Have a blessed day!
