How to Have the Favor and Blessing of God

Let’s look at some surefire ways to guarantee God’s favor and the overflow of His blessings in your life. These and more have certainly worked for me over the years and they will work for you too. Guaranteed!

•Work as if someone is always watching (Trust me, He is). 

•Pray as though He is going to answer your prayers every time.   Be certain what you want and expect His response. That is called Faith. 

•Make sure that you are happy and that you are content right now, right where you are. A grateful heart can move the hand of God so much more quickly. It’s not rocket science. Be content and grateful for NOW, not what’s coming!

•Dream big!!  If YOU can make it happen, then you don’t need God and it’s not a dream, it’s just a goal. 

•Don’t worry!  Remember that worry never changes anything but you, and ALWAYS in a negative way. 

•Fear not!  Fear is the lack of Faith!

•Give of your time in helping others. 

•Give of your money in helping others.  It’s not your money anyway. It all belongs to Him. He can and will replace it. 

•Honor your Father and Mother…..period. If they are not alive, honor their memory. 

•Put others first. 

•Find His promises for you in the Word and memorize those verses. 

•Walk in love….no exceptions. 

•Walk in love….no exceptions. Yes, I know I repeated that one.  If you don’t, you void the all the other bullet points listed. It is that important!

•Discipline yourself to have a Quiet Time each day, no matter how long…quality not quantity…and remember that it’s about relationship, not ritual or tradition. 

•In your Quiet Time, pray for others more than for yourself. 

•Don’t just say the Lord’s Prayer… it!

•Forgive others. 

•Forgive others (yes, I know…now you are beginning to really move forward). 

•Forgive yourself.  Seriously. 

•Never ever look down on anyone due to their God given physical features or their race. They had no choice in that matter, nor did you. 

•At some point during the day, worship. Truly worship. Worship Him for who He is, not for what He has done for you. 

If you will apply these proven principles for 30 days, I can absolutely GUARANTEE you that His favor will emerge!  But beware, as you put these principles in motion you will begin to lose things….. 

You will lose things like anger, bitterness, loneliness, depression, sleepless nights, frustration, sickness, worry, poverty, addictions; all those and more will fall away. 

Break those chains in your life!  Be obedient and be an overcomer!  You will gain His favor!

And that’s the way I see it!
