How to Receive God's Favor

Hello friend, today’s verse is taken from Proverbs 12:2 “A good man obtains favor from the Lord.” Yes, a good and righteous man always obtains favor from the Lord. Sometimes, when you are a good person, people of this world start teasing you for wrong things. Even if your heart is doing the right thing, the world will judge you in a wrong way; but the Lord says that when you are a good person, He will give you His favor.

The Lord sees your heart, but people and the world cannot see your heart. When you have a righteous heart, the Lord will bless you. This happened in the life of my dear aunty. She is a very faithful and righteous person, and she shows her love to everyone around her. Every day, she would pray for us and send WhatsApp messages, which had her prayers. She used to pray for each one of us according to our specific needs and situations. All of a sudden, she was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer. We were shocked and wondered why a righteous and faithful person like her got this disease, and we prayed to the Lord.
The next time when the doctors checked her, they declared her cancer was something that is very easy to be treated and within a few months of treatment, she will be alright. Yes, she did receive favor from the Lord. The Bible says in Psalm 5:12 “Surely, Lord, You bless the righteous; You surround them with Your favor as with a shield.” Yes friend, as you start leading a faithful and righteous life from today, the Lord’s favor will rest upon you.
My loving Heavenly Father,

Thank You for today’s promise. Father, help me lead a righteous and faithful life. Father, surround me with Your favor. May Your healing virtue flow into every aspect of my life. Help me lead others to You through my life which glorifies You.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
