Jeremiah 39:1-41:18; 2 Timothy 1:1-18; Psalm 90:1-91:16; Proverbs 26:1-2

When the favor of God is evident in your life, you get a supernatural advantage over others. Jeremiah had God’s favor working in his life. It was not easy for him to recognize because he was focused like a laser on obeying God.

Yet, God’s favor was all around him. When Israel finally fell to its enemies the King of Babylon told the soldiers to locate Jeremiah and give him a private audience. When Jeremiah approached the king, he had no idea what the King wanted. The king actually gave him an option: you can stay and be taken care of or go to Babylon and be taken care of by the King.

He was the only one who was given such an option. This is another example of that supernatural advantage that favor gives to the child of God. You should live in expectation for this same favor to show up in your life. Expect to be surprised by God’s favor.
