TOPIC: ACTIVATING FAVOUR
Scripture: Proverbs 13: 15. Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! When I was first introduced to the matter of grace, I was told that grace is unmerited favour.
So my idea of favour was very shallow because I felt, you don’t need to do anything for favour to come and that it will come when it wants to come! What a wrong notion, until I came across this scripture!
Proverbs 13: 15. Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.
Waoh! I was amazed that there’s is something called GOOD UNDERSTANDING and that it has power to give favour! In other words, good Understanding is like a womb that births favour.
That was when I began to search and understand this mystery called favour, how it can be provoked. For the next one week I will be sharing with us some of the keys to activating favour upon your life.
Experience has taught me that even as a minister of the Gospel, life is hard without favour!
And anywhere a testimony of success is shared, check it out, behind the success is this mystery called favour.
How then do I activate favour?
1. Through the wisdom of speech making: Previously I shared with us the relationship between wisdom and favour- one aspect of wisdom that can activate favour is words/speech making.
There are speeches that you make, you automatically close the door God has opened for you.
Companies have lost contracts just because the company representative lacked this wisdom of how to talk. Permit me to say this, many people are where they are now because of what they said to God and man! This is why the Bible said;
Proverbs 18: 20. A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. 21. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
How powerful are words?
Your words/speech are powerful because:
A. It conveys your thoughts. Hence you may not to be everywhere but your words will represent you in any place, at any time.
B. It creates pictures: So the picture of your person is formed by your words. How do you want people to see you? Then use your words to create it.
C. Words create perception: How you want people to perceive you is created by your words. It begins with salutations! Some person will never greet even when face to face with their destiny helpers.
D. Words solicit for a reaction from the person you are talking to.
A good example is the MC of any ceremony, there are speeches they make about you and you will be compelled to show them favour by giving them gifts.
E. Words can authorize demons to keep oppressing you.
F. Words has the power to create memories, so anytime you are face to face with people just note that you are creating a memory with your words.
Mind what you said especially when meeting people for the first time, you may never have the privilege to correct your errors.
Beloved, may I ask you a question; when men see you what likely will they remember you for?
When you stand before your in-laws to be for the first time and run your mouth, what memory are you creating?
When a man is in dire need and comes to ask you for assistance, what did say to him? Do you know all the words you speak are in the archive of the man’s heart.
It will ever remain a memory for the rest of his life. Therefore create a good memory.
Beloved, if you really desire favour, you must learn to use words correctly. Trust God for wisdom of speech making.
All this idea of let me speak my mind is childishness that has kept so many people from accessing favour! Don’t be part of the statistics.
I give you a key today, go and learn how to address people and you will see favour smiling on you on a consistent basis.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. Eternity lies ahead every man, prepare to meet your God. Jesus loves you.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I receive grace to learn how to use my tongue and my lips correctly in the name of Jesus.
– I prophesy wisdom for speech making, receive it now in the name of Jesus.
– Every close door as a result of wrong speech is hereby declared open by the mercy of God in the name of Jesus.

God bless you.
