A Growing Sense of Gods Favor
Lately, I have had this growing sense of God's favor and breakthrough. I have a strong sense of anticipation, even in the midst of the covid pandemic. God is up to something and I'm ready to see it play out.
We hear about all the negative stuff. We have seen that things can get worse and evil can seem to prosper. In all of that, we are called to be the people of hope in a hopeless world.
We are still the light of the world, the salt of the earth! Jesus came to open a way out of man's hopelessness, not to focus and obsess on condemnation
Grace is the answer to a broken, hopeless world. The kind of grace that transforms lives. Someone once said that there is more grace in God's heart than there is sin in man's heart.
The message of Jesus, the message we're called to proclaim and live out is so much stronger than life circumstances. This will be a time of God's favor, spiritual breakthroughs, anointing, and release.
That doesn't mean that everything will be perfect. It does mean we should remember to be open and listen carefully for God’s direction.
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19
