When the favor of God is on your life, some will not celebrate it. Did you know that your success can make others mad? Yes, those who see God’s favor as limited to only special people will think that the favor on your life means that there is no favor available for their life.
That is not God’s way! God has enough favor for all of His children and He has freely given it to us. But, if we neglect it or disqualify ourselves from it, it’s no one’s fault but ours. David just did what God told him and he succeeded in everything he did. The same will happen for you.
Favor is the birthright of the Believer! Expect it to show up on your life. Expect that people will not like it. But, don’t let their resistance cause you to act in a way that would cause God’s favor to lift off of your life. In all that David endured up to this point, he never crossed the line of righteousness and went against God’s standards. You and I have to do the same thing.
Don’t deny the favor on your life. Thank God for it and let God’s favor take you where your intelligence and network cannot take you. It’s yours for the asking.
