Luke 1:28-29 (NKJV) “And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” “But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying and considered what manner of greeting this was.” Mary was troubled at the saying, “she was highly favored.”
It might trouble you that God sees you as being highly favored or you might not feel like you are highly favored; but if you are saved, you are. Luke 1:30-38 (NKJV) “Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. For with God nothing will be impossible. Then Mary said, ‘Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.’ And the angel departed from her.” Here’s the key to activating the favor of God: “Let it be to me according to your word.” When you read the word, hear it, and meditate on it, tell God “Let it be to me according to your word.” Joshua 1:8 (NKJV)
“This Book of the Law(God’s word) shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it(Let it be to you according to your word). For then, you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.” You make yourself prosperous and have success. That’s the favor of God in action.
Do you feel you have the favor of God? Do you now know how to activate the favor of God? Are you willing to do that starting today?
