Why Do We Need God's Favor, and How Do We Obtain It?
God doesn't have any favorite children, right? That would appear to be unjust or unimpartial. Despite this, if you read through Scripture, you'll find examples of regular people that God decided to get up close and personal with. The folks in question were individuals whom God utilized in a particularly tremendous way, and it was evident that they were under the anointing, protection, and remarkable benefits of God.
Because God is not one to show prejudice, as Peter stated in Acts 10:34, and as Paul stated in Romans 2:11, both words relate to God's impartiality when it comes to saving both the Jew and the Gentile in the context of the Bible. When it comes to salvation, God is unbiased, "not intending for any to perish" as the Bible states (2 Peter 3:9). However, when it comes to using humans to accomplish His objectives on this planet, God definitely chooses out particular individuals above the rest.
According to Second Chronicles 16:9, "For the Lord's eyes are ever searching across the whole earth, to prove Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are faithful to Him" (NKJV). At the end of the day, God is looking for a handful of determined, surrendered hearts so that He can lavish His favor on them.
According to 2 Peter 1:2, God's grace is doubled to us as a result of our gaining understanding. The first step toward receiving the blessings of God's favor is to recognize that you have received them in the first place. After that, you must accept them on the basis of trust. Keep in mind Ephesians 2:8, which states, "God saved you by his grace..." Every imaginable blessing and goodness that God has to offer is made available through His favor, which begins with salvation. Your part is to have confidence in Him and to accept everything He has given you.
God's favor is yours, but there are a few things you must do in order to reap the full advantages of this favor. First and foremost, you must receive God's favor in the same way that you receive every other spiritual promise: by trust. After that, you must let go of your faith.
That is exactly what Abraham, the founder of our faith, did. When God promised him that he would be the father of many countries, it appeared that his situation was hopeless. His chronological age. Sarah's infertility has lasted her entire life. I don't understand how this is possible. They were granted God's promise via faith, as well as God's favor.
