Are you looking to be liked so much that people give you gifts? Would you like to have more friends? Would you like to get the promotion you desire? If the answer is yes, then you’ll need the favor of God. The favor of God is a blessing that covers and makes you a magnet for success, relationships, increase and so much more. But, how do you experience the favor of God? The key is, character! You have to be a person of godly character.
Joseph and His Commitment
In my own personal life, I have experienced favor that comes with increase and blessings when I decided to live right before the Lord. There is a special grace released to you when you make a commitment to live holy. Let me prove this to you with Scripture.
There is no one greater in this house than I, nor has he kept back anything from me but you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”
In this verse, we can see Joseph was a man of integrity and character. So much so that Potipfar was able to trust Jospeh to run his house. He was committed to God even when he was approached by Potiphar’s wife to have sex with him. Could Jospeh have gotten away with being corrupt or sleeping with his master’s wife? Maybe. However, he understood he didn’t just serve his master. He served the Lord first. He understood that anything he did, both good or bad, was before the Lord. Unfortunately, he was lied on and thrown into prison. Because Joseph did the right thing, even in this situation God gave him favor.
He ended up in prison with the king’s prisoners and was put in charge of them. In the end, he was connected to king Pharaoh by one of the prisoners which led to him being freed and supernaturally promoted to second in command in the land of Egypt.
Now It’s Your Turn
How does this relate to you? Like Joseph, you’re expected to be committed to the Lord and be a person of godly character. Jesus has given you grace to resist sin and overcome temptation. When you do, you’ll see more and more favor flowing in your life.
It’s the type of favor that will give you promotions, empowers you to be effective and productive in all that you do. You have been called and empowered to live holy before the Lord. My prayer is you will yield to this power and begin to see great favor in your life.
