What does "highly blessed and favored" mean? What does "favor ain't fair" means? For me, the answer lies in God's WORD. I know the story of Ruth and Naomi; the story of Esther; the life of Job and David and Rahab, and I know about the Samaritan woman at the well and Mary Magdalene. Just to name a few of God's faithful who have been blessed and highly favored!
To be highly blessed and favored entail faith. Faith, not only in believing, but faith in action. James 2:14-18 tells me, "What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works." (NKJV)
God rewards HIS children for their faithfulness in their work. Yes, you may be praying all the time, you may believe, but if you are not moving despite God telling you to move, then you are being disobedient. Put your faith into works and it will please God. God reigns favor over our lives when HE wants to put a pep in our step, when HE sees that we are doing HIS work and serving HIS people despite ....
Favor aint fair .... BUT GOD.
Do you really believe what you are speaking when you say you are favored? How so? Have you dreamed a big dream? Are you making that dream come to reality or are you too ashamed to speak life into its existence?
Are you one to just "talk and talk and talk" about what you will do or where you will go? What about that business? What about the ministry of serving the least of these? What about giving God HIS 10% and relying on HIM to supply ALL your needs?
My friends, if you are benefiting from God's favor, then show God through your works that you appreciate HIS favor and you are grateful for HIS favor. God is faithful to us, let us be faithful to HIM.
