TOPIC: WHY EVERY BELIEVER NEEDS FAVOUR
Scripture: 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.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! In continuation of what we started yesterday, the matter of favour is because it is so vital to every single person on earth.
Why is favour important to every believer?
1. It is the technology of time redemption(Exo.3:21)! There’s no way to buy over time that was lost without favour.
2. Life is stagnated without favour: No matter how gifted a man is, without favour he can still be begging to survive. I have seen a man with several certificates yet none could fetch him a job because his life is void of favour. When life is void of favour, stagnation is inevitable! But when life is full of favour, progress is certain.
A good example of this truth is the story of Joseph! In Gen.37:20-24) the brothers of Joseph conspired to kill him but favour forbade him from being killed!
I don’t know who is plotting your death, I’m glad to announce to you, by the favour of God you will escape every programmed death this year in the name of Jesus.
Secondly, they threw Joseph into the pit but favour forbade him from remaining in the pit! I don’t know what kind of position you are currently that looks like a pit!
Inside the pit there is darkness, there’s no breath of fresh air and you may even be thinking this is your end! I’m glad to announce to you today, you are coming out of that pit! That pit they kept you is not your place in destiny. For the Bible said:
Zechariah 9: 11. As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
Thirdly, they sold Joseph as a slave to Egypt and he was bought by Mr Potiphar from the Ishmeelites. While in Potiphar’s house favour spoke for him there(Gen.39:1-6 ).
By favour he became promoted to the position of Managing Director in charge of Portiphar’s estate.
Beloved, I don’t know the level you are right now, but I’m glad to announce to you, by the force of favour, your promotion is coming.
Fourthly, Joseph was later taken to prison on the account of false allegation, still favour gave him preference before the prison officials:
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.
Joseph was later recommended to the palace of Herod, king of Egypt by the force of favour. He became the first stranger to occupy the position of prime minister in the land of Egypt.
Beloved, there was no way Joseph could be stagnated all the way because the favour of God was upon him.
Even in circumstances that were planned to mess up his destiny, he kept on moving forward! This is why I’m confident to tell you that, by the force of favour, your life is excused from stagnation this season.
3. Success is not easily achieavable without favour.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. Don’t gamble with your eternal destiny. Settle it now by surrendering and living your life for Jesus.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I open up my heart to this mystery called favour. Cloth me now with the garment of favour in the name of Jesus.
– I declare, your season for a lifting has come!!
– By, the force of favour, you are changing levels today in the name of Jesus.
From your brother Alex
God bless you real good.
