I’ve seen a lot of churches recently that have become discouraged and have shrunk back in their faith. Some of these churches used to be very strong and uncompromising in their faith. This is never pleasing to our Heavenly Father.
Let me be direct and encourage you to refuse to shrink back in your expectation to see God’s manifested goodness, favor, and blessing overflowing in your life. In fact, I’ll be even more bold and encourage you to believe for greater prosperity, favor, and success than ever before! Why? Because prosperity, favor and success are Biblical.
The wisdom in Proverbs reveals, “Generosity brings prosperity, but withholding from charity brings poverty.” The Scripture goes on to say, “Those who live to bless others will have blessings heaped upon them, and the one who pours out his life to pour out blessings will be saturated with favor” (Proverbs 11:24-25 TPT).
God has given me such a revelation of His favor and I’ve learned to expect it every day of my life. I’m known all around the world as the “favor preacher.” I’ve seen the favor of God do the impossible in my life, time and time again. I’m thrilled that I get to share this revelation with you!
You need God’s favor today. This world is getting darker and darker. There is more turmoil, chaos, and hardships now than there has been in many years. While you may be faced with distressing times, God is not going to leave you there. God is merciful, kind, and gracious. He will pour out His favor and move by His power on your behalf.
I declare that the favor of God is about to manifest in your life and turn the worst of times into the best of times!
God’s favor is going to bring you out of situations that would ruin others. God is predisposed to show favor. It’s in His character. You will not suffer the results and consequences of the ungodly. God will show Himself strong for those that serve Him.
When others see this manifesting in your life, they will be compelled to ask, “How is this happening to you all the time?”
Speaking of God’s people, the psalmist says, “In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty” (Psalm 37:19 NIV).
Like I said, we’re faced with greater adversity today than we’ve ever experienced before. It will take more than just natural human power to overcome hardships. It will take more than just natural human ability to bring victory. It will take the favor of God on your life like never before.
Thank God you have this promise from God’s word, “For You, Lord, will bless the uncompromisingly righteous, him who is upright and in right standing with You, as with a shield You will surround him with…favor” (Psalm 5:12 AMPC).
Being surrounded by God’s favor means to be completely enveloped by favor. That sounds a lot like being saturated with favor, doesn’t it!
Start believing, expecting, and declaring favor everywhere you go, and favor in everything that you do. I declare that you’re abundantly covered and supplied with favor; it’s there every time you need it!
I have learned over the past 50-plus years how to walk in the favor of God and how to operate in it, and I love teaching others how to see it active in their lives also. God is no respecter of persons. The favor of God is available to you. You can experience the miraculous power of His favor changing circumstances and overcoming impossible situations in your life just like it does for me.
How can you experience more favor? How can you align your life with God’s purpose and walk in greater favor?
Proverbs instructs, “If you search for good, you will find God’s favor” (Proverbs 11:27 NLT). The Passion Translation says it this way, “Living your life seeking what is good for others brings untold favor…”
How often do you seek to do what is good for others? What does “doing good for others” look like?
Paul said it this way, “So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good to all people…be mindful to be a blessing…” (Galatians 6:10 AMPC).
BE MINDFUL TO BE A BLESSING! This means to always be thinking about how and where you can bless someone.
I like to say, showing favor to someone else brings favor back to you.
You need to become consumed with an attitude of generosity. I’m always looking for opportunities to be a blessing to others. I know this is one of the greatest reasons why I walk in that high level of God’s favor. This is not some twisted attempt to buy God’s favor. No, this generosity is rooted in a grateful, surrendered heart.
What does Paul tell us about God’s attitude toward those who are grateful givers? He says, “…for God loves, He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things and is unwilling to abandon or to do without a cheerful, joyous prompt-to-do-it giver, whose heart is in his giving” (2 Corinthians 9:7 AMPC).
In the next verse, he says that God will cause His “Favor…to come to you in abundance…” and then it goes on in verse 11 to say that because of this, then you will be “Enriched in all things and in every way.”
I’ve found this principle to be true in my life: The more consistent you are in your giving, the more consistently you’ll see God’s favor showing up in your life.
Do you want to be the winner in life that God wants you to be? Then learn to walk in and depend upon the favor of God every day of your life. In the world that we live in today, you need to be saturated with God’s favor – it’s what will make the difference between just surviving or thriving.
I recently spoke a powerful message titled, Saturated with Favor. In it, I show you through Scripture how God desires to pour out His favor on your life to even greater degrees.

The Psalmist declared, “…the Lord bestows…favor…No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11 AMPC). I’m believing for you to walk in favor and experience the miraculous hand of God manifesting in your life more than ever before.
I’m praying for you and encouraging you to never forget that there’s no way for you to lose when your life is saturated with the favor of God.
P.S. God’s favor should never be “hit or miss.” Psalm 30:5 (AMPC) tells us, “…His favor is for a lifetime.” It’s on you now and it will be on you for the rest of your life. You can win and walk in victory over every challenge. I’m thankful for you and hope to hear from you soon.
