Luk 2:52(KJV) And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
 
Favour means unmerited, undeserved, unearned goodwill. It is the virtue which draws unprecedented, unexpected help towards God’s children. It is the virtue through which all things work together for our good- regardless of all odds, and right in their faces.
 
For example, the word of God says that when the ways of a man pleases the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him (Prov. 16.7). Now that’s favour.
 
 

Favour with God attracts favour with men.
The help of God attracts the help of men.

We see this demonstrated in Jacob’s life when he worked with shrew and manipulative Laban. Each time Laban changed his wage, everything worked together to yield exactly the new remuneration- so much that Jacob ended up far richer than his wicked boss. Now that’s favour!

Whenever he said, ‘The speckled ones will be your wages,’ all the flocks gave birth to speckled young. And whenever he said, ‘The striped ones will be your wages,’ all the flocks gave birth to striped young. Gen 31:8 (GW)

Increase in favour is God’s will for His children. In fact, we do understand by the word of God, that the moment Jesus started appearing before God, He began to experience remarkable growth in certain key areas, favour inclusive.

Jesus grew in favour with God and men!
 
Another man who grew in favour daily is David. The word of God says that daily, help located him until his army was as large as God’s own army.

For … day by day there came to David to help him, until it was a great host, like the host of God. 1Chr.12:22 (KJV)

Now that’s favour.

Favour with God attracts favour with men.
The help of God attracts the help of men.
 
Would you like to experience remarkable increase in favour and help  from now on? Remember it starts by appearing before God daily.
 
Please make this your daily confession:
 
Confession:

I increase in favour every passing day.
The lines are falling unto me in pleasant places
Even the rich among the people will entreat my favour
Day by day help is coming unto me to help me
My ways are pleasing to the Lord and He makes my enemies to be at peace with me
I am helped of God so men will get out of their way to help me
My paths are getting wider and my lights brighter
All things are working together for my good.
In Jesus name. Amen
