As we earlier said, the righteous has a heritage of favour with God. Whereas God compasses the righteous with favour (Psalm 5:12), He is angry with the sinner everyday (Psalm 7:11). When you give in to sin, you step out of favour with God. And when God is angry with you, you can’t enjoy His favour, which establishes you as an outstanding success on the earth.
Read Psalm 45:7 from your Bible.
Righteousness causes you to enjoy favour first with God, and then with men. Joseph feared the Lord, and God caused His favour to billow upon him, causing him to enjoy favour everywhere he went — in Potiphar’s house, in the prison and finally in Pharaoh’s palace.
You are only what you are by the favours of God. ” Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh but in vain .” So, the grace of God is the moulder of the destinies of men; and it takes purity to be connected to this fountain of favour.
Watch every Christian that goes about in bitterness and hatred, one that enjoys immorality and sin; he just begins to stink. When you want to do him a favour, the Holy Spirit says, “Don’t.” God the Father says, “Don’t”, the angels don’t allow you either. Why? He doesn’t have divine approval, so he is not permitted to enjoy human favours.
Read Acts 2:46-47 from your Bible.
The purity of the early Church was in peace, so they enjoyed favour unlimited and God added to them daily. May the favour of God locate you from henceforth. May it find you wherever you are — at your work-place, home, in the city or on the road, in Jesus’ mighty name.
