Do you have favor with God and man?

Favor is the blessing of God that opens doors, gives protection, promotes and provides for those who find it. 

How can we walk in favor with God and man?

1. Walking in righteousness releases favor.

For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield. “—Psalm 5:12

2. Seeking good finds favor. 

“He who earnestly seeks good finds favor, But trouble will come to him who seeks evil. —Proverbs 11:27

3. Showing mercy and standing for truth finds favor. 

Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man.“ —Proverbs 3:3-4

4. Having a good understanding of the ways of God brings favor.

“Good understanding gains favor, But the way of the unfaithful is hard.” —Proverbs 13:15

Favor can accomplish more in one minute than natural effort can accomplish over years. Speak favor over your life and determine to walk in righteousness, seek good, show mercy, stand for truth and seek understanding. 

Abundant life and blessings will overtake you!
