TOPIC: INTRODUCTION TO THE MYSTERY GARMENT CALLED FAVOUR
Scripture: Exodus 3: 21. And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! The Lord must have imparted us with the spirit of wisdom for leadership all through the month of September. You are welcome to the month of October.
We understand from the scriptures that God does not want His children to live a miserable life! Hence He gave a garment/coat that ensures it never happens. This garment is called favour! Favour is the cure to empty handedness. Hence God said:
Exodus 3: 21. And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:
Beloved, to go through life empty handed is not part of God’s plan for your life. To go through life struggling to survive is not part of God’s program for your life. Infact, if all you have in life is gotten by labour then it is certain that favour is absent in your life.
Hence, God package a mystery in a garment form called favour which is God’s provision, His panacea for shame and reproach. When your life contacts favour an end has come to profitless toiling.
All through the scriptures no man attained greatness alone without this accompanying element called favour!
Noah obtained favour(Gen.1:8).
Abraham obtained favour
Isaac and Jacob obtained favour
Joseph obtained favour;
Genesis 39: 21. But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
Moses obtained favour(Exo.2:6)
Samuel found favour:
1 Samuel 2: 26. And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men.
David obtained favour:
1 Samuel 16: 22. And Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favour in my sight.
Esther obtained favour:
Esther 2: 17. And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.
Even our Lord Jesus Christ walked in favour.
Luke 2: 52. And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Without favour life is tough as it is faced with rejection, lack of access and open doors that make life frustrating and bitter.
Join me this month on the platform of Moment of Daily Encounter as we journey through the Bible while looking at the Monarch of the universe for insight as we explore the mystery called favour all through the month of October. You will be richly blessed as you come along.
Remember this; Heaven is real and hell is real!
The decision of where to spend eternity is best made now. Where do you want to spend eternity?
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, open me up to this mystery called favour.
– I declare upon your life, it is your season to be favoured.
– May the garment of favour clothe you this season in the name of Jesus.

God bless you.
