Truth be told, we don’t deserve God’s favor. We’ve done nothing to earn it. In fact for some, God has every reason to reject us off His favorites list. But even after being disappointed time and time again, God’s mercy gives us another chance.
Unlike people, God is no favor of persons. You’ve heard others say it, “she’s my favorite or he’s my favorite.” “I might like that person but the other one, that’s my favorite!”
Well, God says you’re his favorite. Even though you didn’t deserve it, even though you didn’t earn it, He still has your best interests at heart. I think about that word unearned. And it’s kind of like the world’s credit system.
I think about how when I was fresh out of high school, and I applied for my first car in my name. I’ll never forget being asked, “do you have a co-signer, we need someone who has established or ‘earned’ the credit.”
At the time, I didn’t know what that meant. My thoughts were, “that’s why I’m here so I can ‘earn’ the credit.” That’s when I found out everyone has to earn the credit. That’s the world’s system. And I can understand why.
But with God, you don’t have to earn credit with Him. You don’t have to establish your record or prove yourself to Him. No, fresh out of the womb you were already established. You were all ready favored. God knew you even before you were formed in the womb. That’s when He established you. He adopted you. You became a child of the one true King!
And just when you thought the deal couldn’t get any better, it doesn’t stop there. God’s favor for you is unprecedented. That means it’s unmatched. Unparalleled. Unheard-of. No one can favor you the way God can.
You see, one day you may be a person’s favorite and the next day may be the total opposite, you’re on their revenge list. But not only is God consistent, forever forgiving and always true, His favor for you is like none other.
How do you tap into this favor? It’s simple. Jesus says you can pray anything in His name and He will do it. You can pray secretly, or you can take it a step further. Go get a friend. Get two more witnesses and pray. Jesus says “where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there.” And then you have to believe. stretch your faith. Pray for favor.
God is faithful and mighty to deliver. He’s an Ephesians 3:20 God, “He’s able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all you can ask or think!” No person can make that good of a deal. That is divine unprecedented favor in it’s finest!
We don’t deserve it, but God is faithful. Regardless of who you are, where you’ve been or what you’ve done, God can use you for His purpose. Every good work He began in you, He will bring it to completion. And He will favor you in unprecedented ways as you charge forth on your journey of life!
