Access Gods Favour

Find Gods Favour

by Gloria Copeland

God’s favour will change your life and you have to know how to access Gods favour. How would your life look if you were surrounded, all day and every day, by God’s favour? How different would things be if doors opened for you, and you walked through each one covered with God’s favour? Would your actions and attitudes in every situation be any different if you knew beyond any doubt that success lies ahead, because you are one of God’s favourites? Would you find the courage to lay down your anxieties and fears? Of course, you would!

Here are four ways to access the favour of God:

1. You Already Have God’s Favour

Many Christians believe they have to somehow earn the favour of God, but the truth is, we already have His favour. God saved us because of His favour toward us. Ephesians 2:8 tells us, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God” (NKJV).

Simply put, grace is favour.

God’s favour is the power that changes things for us. First and foremost, you and I are saved by His favour, and I’m not just talking about going to heaven when we die. To be saved means to be delivered, protected, preserved, healed and made whole.

God’s favour covers every area of our lives! By His favour, He has taken care of everything we will ever need—spirit, soul and body. His supernatural grace is so vast, the Bible says it is going to take all the ages to come for Him to show us all the riches of His grace in the kindness He’s given us in Christ Jesus (see Ephesians 2:7).

Have you made Jesus the Lord of your life? You can do it right now! Simply pray this prayer.

2. You Receive God’s Favour by Faith

According to 2 Peter 1:2, God’s grace is multiplied to us through knowledge. The first thing you have to do before you can receive the benefits of God’s favour is to know they are yours. Then, you have to receive them by faith. Remember Ephesians 2:8, “God saved you by his grace….” God’s favour provides every possible blessing and goodness He has to give, starting with being saved. Your part is faith—to believe and receive all He has given.

Our grandson Jeremy Pearsons puts it so simply. He says, “Grace is God saying, ‘Here is all the good stuff I have to give you.’ Faith is you saying, ‘Thank You, I’ll take it.’”

So, where do we get the faith to receive? “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17, KJV). We find out the truth about God’s favour, goodness and blessing as we hear His Word on these things. Faith comes, we believe and begin to receive what His Word says.

3. God Is Searching for Someone to Bless With His Favour

Sadly, many times we are slow to receive God’s favour. We think we’re waiting on Him when He’s actually waiting on us to receive. You see, God has already done everything it takes for you and me to be fully cared for while we’re living here on earth. He has provided every blessing—health, prosperity, peace of mind, joy, deliverance from sin and everything that pertains to our good life (2 Peter 1:3). Then He tops it all off with life in heaven when we leave this earth! It’s all part of His favour. All we have to do is stay ready to receive.

Actually, we can’t get away from God’s favor. Second Chronicles 16:9 tells us, “The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him…” (KJV). Perfect doesn’t refer to someone who never makes a mistake. It means someone who is loyal, devoted and faithful. This kind of heart is always ready to receive the good things His grace provides.

God is always searching for someone to bless. That’s His nature. He is full of mercy and compassion. Because of His favor, He looks for someone who is ready to trust Him; someone who is ever ready to reach out in faith to receive His favor and blessing.

Are you that kind of person? Are you the kind of person who is trustworthy, someone who is ready and willing to receive God’s favour and blessing?

4. You Must Release Your Faith for God’s Favour

God’s favor is yours, but there are a couple of things you must do to fully enjoy its benefits. First, you must receive God’s favor like every other spiritual promise—by faith. Then you must release your faith.

That’s what Abraham, the father of our faith, did. The circumstances looked hopeless when God promised him he would be the father of many nations. His age. Sarah’s lifelong barrenness. How could it be? They received God’s promise by faith and God’s favour.

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised…but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead…through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. (Romans 4:18-21, 24, 5:2, NIV).

Look at Romans 5:2 again. We have access by faith into grace! God’s favor surrounds us—our faith releases it! Glory to God!

So, we are just like Abraham. That’s how it is in life for all of us. Sometimes things look bad. But we have to learn when we walk in faith and face the natural facts, we believe God anyway. We grow to the point where we can hear bad news without wavering in our faith…and receive God’s favor no matter what the circumstances are.

Receiving God’s favor by faith is a simple act on our part.

Get into God’s Word. Put the Word into your heart and speak it out your mouth. Believe it and act on it. Receive it!
