Have you ever wondered HOW something was going to be accomplished in your life? Is there a need or a dream that you have but you don’t know how it’s going to come to pass?
I have good news for you! The Lord has given me a special message for you.
The two characteristics the early church walked in throughout the book of Acts were GREAT POWER and GREAT GRACE (Acts 4:33). The Amplified Bible defines this great grace as “loving kindness, favor and goodwill.” Since God’s grace is His unmerited favor shown in our lives, the early church walked in GREAT POWER and GREAT FAVOR. And I’m writing to tell you – so can you!
There are many benefits to God’s favor, but the one the Lord wants me to emphasize is supernatural provision. You may not know HOW God is going to meet your need, but you can trust that He WILL. When God’s favor is manifested on your behalf, things that would never happen in the natural, begin to happen for you!
The favor of God on your life causes you to also have favor with man!
God’s great favor on your life will cause people to bless you even when they don’t know why they are doing it. When an unbeliever walks up to me and says, “I don’t know why I’m doing this, but…”, I know that I’m about to see God’s favor at work on my behalf!
That’s what happened for Esther in the Old Testament. She was a Jewish slave in a foreign land. The Jewish people were hated and plans were being made to kill them all. But at a time when things didn’t look good for God’s people, an ungodly King showed Esther favor and it changed everything.
Esther 2:17 says, “And the King loved Esther…and she obtained grace and favor…so that he set the crown upon her head and made her queen…” This would have never happened without God’s favor. It not only blessed her but it also saved her people.
Even though total devastation seemed inevitable, GREAT FAVOR on her life changed all of that. Even though your circumstances may seem impossible, God’s favor can change them into wonderful victories.
I particularly like the phrase that is used in the Book of Esther to describe why she had received this favor…and that phrase is: “For such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). She needed God’s favor then like never before.
The same is true for you! Esther’s story is a story of triumph that grew out of tragedy – that can be your story as well. There’s never been a time in your life when you have needed to experience “favor with God and man” more than in such a time as this!
The world around us is in serious trouble. Their systems are broken and failing and they really don’t know what to do to correct them. That’s why great favor and supernatural provision are a must for you today!
The favor of God knows no boundaries or limitations or barriers!
It certainly doesn’t “stagger” at what seems impossible. The more impossible it looks then the greater your testimony will be.
Even in the worst of circumstances God’s favor can cause people to bless you. Even people who are against you.
Think about the impossible looking circumstances that God’s people were facing after hundreds of years of captivity to the Egyptians. They were enslaved, beaten, and mistreated for generations.
But when the time came for them to be free, God spoke to and through Moses saying, “I will cause the Egyptians to look favorably on you. They will give you gifts when you go so you will not leave empty handed.” And they escaped “stripping the Egyptians of their wealth” (Exodus 3:21-22 NLT).
Now that’s what I call Supernatural Provision! Do you know anyone who could make something like that happen other than God? Of course not!
That’s why He told the Israelites “I will cause…” this to happen so they would know that it would be supernatural. In other words, there is no way that man could make this happen. He used ungodly people as His vessel and caused His favor to flow through them!
I’m telling you, by the direction of the Holy Ghost, you’re going to see things like this taking place greater than you’ve ever seen before! I want to encourage you to set your faith on this right now and wake up every day expecting it.
During the Ministry of Jesus, it certainly wasn’t uncommon for the disciples to witness supernatural provision. How about 5,000 people being fed with five loaves and two fishes (Luke 9:10-17)
Jesus even sent out His ministry team and told them not to take any money or supplies with them. When they returned from their trip, Jesus asked if they lacked anything, and they replied, “Nothing!” Twelve full-time employees and sometimes an additional 70 associates, and they never lacked anything! I’d call that supernatural provision!
I have seen God’s favor produce supernatural provision for this ministry time and time again. Every time God has spoken to me to step out into something new in this ministry, I have had to trust Him for supernatural provision. I have never known HOW God was going to do it, but I always knew that He WOULD! God has always brought the right people, at the right time to support the ministry that He has directed.
I recently preached a powerful message titled Supernatural Provision and I want you to have this timely, prophetic message! In it I’m able to teach more in-depth about how God’s favor produces this in our lives. To give securely online and get the instant MP3 download link, simply visit www.jsmiaustralia.org/offering
Your best gift will enable me to continue to encourage you and thousands of others around the world each day.
Thank you for your support. Your prayers and financial gifts mean so much to me. Thank you for believing in the call of God on my life! And, thank you for being a part of helping reach more people with the love and truth of Jesus Christ!
I pray God’s supernatural provision for you today!
P.S. Let me also remind you to be a doer of the Word and not just a hearer only. When Jesus told Peter to go fishing and pay the taxes with the coin in the first fish’s mouth, Jesus was setting him up for a miracle. Your obedience to God’s instruction will position you for supernatural provision. Don’t hesitate to obey what God is asking you to do!
